WashingtonExec Summer Reading List Series:
With rising temperatures continuing to beckon patio cookout season and the muggy days of August just days ahead of us, WashingtonExec asked area executives which books they planned to peruse this summer.
WashingtonExec caught up earlier this month with Sal Fazzolari, the senior vice president of strategic development at CRGT, to find out what he’s been reading this summer.
Fazzolari, who told us in a recent interview he likes to golf and collect wines when he’s not strategically leading his Reston, Va.-based company, told us he’s reading three books this summer.
The first, The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism, is a nonfiction book by Doris Kearns Goodwin that narrates the tale of the history of the first decade of the Progressive era. Published just this past November, the account –told through the friendship of William Howard Taft and Teddy Roosevelt — is sure to please.
Fazzolari’s second reading choice this summer was Dr. David Perlmutter’s Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar—Your Brain’s Silent Killers. The book, which aims to identify the cognitively detrimental effects of all types of grains, provides a four-week plan for reprogramming lifestyle habit and dietary changes.
Last on Fazzolari’s list was Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt, the recently published book by Michael Lewis about the effects of high-frequency trading in the U.S. equity market.
