WashingtonExec Summer Reading List Series:
It might not yet “officially” be summer, but with rising temperatures beckoning the start of patio cookout season, WashingtonExec asked area executives which books they planned to peruse this summer.
For Giant Oak CEO Gary Shiffman, an adjunct professor within Georgetown University‘s Center for Security Studies, the summer months signal the opportunity to do some “light-reading.”
The national security economics expert said the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth tops his 2014 list. After that, Shiffman plans to tackle John Nagl’s Knife Fights: An Education in Modern War and The Terrorist’s Dilemma: Managing Violent Covert Organizations by Jacob Shapiro.
Shiffman also provided us with his 2014 market outlook in December. See what he predicted here.
