makes me realize something so small has such eternal significance; as a designer, every small decision has the potential to create a more meaningful experience for your audience. It’s a fast but fascinating read.”

Nick Steele Nick is reading Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson

“I love Neil and this is possibly my favorite book of his. It takes place in Los Angeles in a dystopian future where corporations have developed privatized countries following the mega-inflation of the US dollar. The book presents the Sumerian language as the firmware programming language for the brainstem, which is supposedly functioning as the BIOS for the human brain (i.e. the spine is your motherboard) . There’s lots of other neat tech stuff – in fact, the term “Avatar” gained popularity due to this book. It’s a short read, very exciting, and totally worth it.” Note: Aaron “seconds” this choice

Amanda Peyton Amanda suggests Makers by Chris Anderson

“Manufacturing in America is changing rapidly, and this book is the best overview I have read around what’s happening and why the new industrial revolution is so important. A number of important points in this book influenced the creation of our vision here

at Grand St. Highly recommended.”

Craig Battin Craig just finished Chasing the

White Dog: An Amateur Outlaw’s Adventures in Moonshine by Max Watman

“This book traces the history of moonshine from it’s origins in the 1790s to present day. The author also sprinkles in chapters detailing his own humorous attempts at making white lightning in his basement. Beware: certain chapters of this book will make you very thirsty.”

Craig Battin Andrew is enjoying The Design Of Everyday Things by Donald Norman

“Norman analyzes designs that are literally all around us and points out how many of them are, well, just poorly designed. It has changed the way I look at objects around me, from doors to countertops, which are two examples Norman uses to make his point. This was a great introduction to learning the basics of design concepts.”

Happy reading, and feel free to send us your suggestions!
