WashingtonExec: What is on your summer reading list?
Bierweiler: I have so many great titles in my queue for this summer — some that are new, and some that I have read before but can always gain value from revisiting. Here is my current reading list:
- “Principals” by Ray Dalio: I have heard great things about the content and overall delivery of this book. Ray Dalio’s success is undeniable, and he is recognized as a global leader and visionary. I hope to gain insight into his values and principles behind his professional accomplishments and personal happiness.
- “Shaken” by Tim Tebow: As an alum of the University of Florida, I will read almost anything Tim Tebow writes! In all seriousness, the reviews on this book have been great. I think it’s important to maintain your identity and integrity through both the ups and downs of life and business. These are lessons that I hope I demonstrate and instill in those I am entrusted to lead — both as a leader and as a father.
- “Rocket Men” by Robert Kurson: This book takes an inside look into the Apollo 8 mission against the political and social challenges of the late 1960s. I’m looking forward to reading Kurson’s narrative of the events leading up to the epic accomplishment of taking man into space.
- “Zero to One” by Peter Thiel: This is one book that I recommend every leader keep on their bookshelf. I try to read it at least once a year, and each time I find myself taking away different insights on value creation in general — whether that’s within my team, company or society overall.
