Hey guys, it’s your Bae Jenn10. Today I’m going to talk about a few books I would like to read for the month October. Now to be quit honest growing up I was never fond of reading but as I’m getting older I’m starting to realize their is alot to learn and reading is essential amongst other things. Ben Franklin once said
An investment in knowledge always pay the best interest.
which I completely agree, I think it’s imperative as people we take the time to invest in learning by exploring the endless amount of information the world has available.
Let’s get right to it, çoming in first is Managing Oneself by Peter Drucker
About the writer:
Peter Drucker was a writer, teacher, and consultant. His 34 books have been published in more than 70 languages. He founded the Peter F. Drucker Foundation for Nonprofit Management, and counseled 13 governments, public services institutions, and major corporations.
Why this Book:
I choose this book because it has always been a passion of mine to run my own company. For quite some time now I wanted to read something that would help guide me in understanding, What I need to do to become a successful CEO.
According to the synopsis:
We live in an age of unprecedented opportunity: with ambition, drive, and talent, you can rise to the top of your chosen profession regardless of where you started out. But with opportunity comes responsibility. Companies today aren’t managing their knowledge workers careers. Instead, you must be your own chief executive officer. That means it’s up to you to carve out your place in the world and know when to change course. And it’s up to you to keep yourself engaged and productive during a career that may span some 50 years.
In Managing Oneself, Peter Drucker explains how to do it. The keys: Cultivate a deep understanding of yourself by identifying your most valuable strengths and most dangerous weaknesses; Articulate how you learn and work with others and what your most deeply held values are; and Describe the type of work environment where you can make the greatest contribution. Only when you operate with a combination of your strengths and self-knowledge can you achieve true and lasting excellence. Managing_Oneself identifies the probing questions you need to ask to gain the insights essential for taking charge of your career.

Next is, COOL: Style, Sound, and Subversion by Greg Foley and Andrew Luecke
About the Authors:
Greg Foley is an Award-winning author-illustrator designer and creative-director Visionaire.
Andrew Luecke is a professional trend forecaster and style editor
Why this Book?
I added this book to the list because I wanted to get a great insight to the world of modern fashion and the history that has helped shaped what we see today in style, music and culture.
According to Synopsis:
It’s no secret that the youth of the world buck conventional mainstream culture every chance they get, blazing countercultural trails in the process. Driven by their thirst for art and music, and their environment, young people combine their inspirations with the innate desire to rebel, resulting in a defiant subculture; and mainstream society runs to catch up, to co-opt it, and drag it to the mainstream. Lindy Hoppers of the 1930s, greasers of the 1950s, Rude Boys of the 1960s, glam rockers of the 1970s, club kids of the 1980s: there are countless subculture styles that were born from resisting authority.
COOL: Style, Sound, and Subversion is equal parts historical chronicle and handbook of the myriad subcultures–most unknown to mainstream culture–that have influenced style. Authors Greg Foley and Andrew Luecke have compiled a comprehensive list of subcultures that have evolved over more than one hundred years, taking a look at the fashion, the art, the films, the books, the music, and historical context of these style movements, many of which came to influence conventional culture and eventually became a norm. Lavish with original illustrations, COOL references a wealth of ephemera–including a timeline, zeitgeist films, ‘zines, secret music scenes, art collectives, and over one hundred music playlists tied to specific subcultures through the years–to give the reader a thoroughly vibrant picture of each movement and their sub-movements. COOL: Style, Sound, and Subversion is sure to appeal to fashionistas, culture mavens, and pop culture fans alike.
For the next two I was suggested to read Generation, updated version before reading iGen
In this provocative and newly revised book, headline-making psychologist Dr. Jean Twenge explores why the young people she calls “Generation Me” are tolerant, confident, open-minded, and ambitious but also disengaged, narcissistic, distrustful, and anxious.
Born in the ’80s, and ’90s and called “The Entitlement Generation” or Millennials, they are reshaping schools, colleges, and businesses all over the country. The children of the Baby Boomers are not only feeling the effects of the recession and the changing job market—they are affecting change the world over. Now, in this new edition of Generation Me, Dr. Twenge incorporates the latest research, data, and statistics, as well as new stories and cultural references, to show how “Gen Me-ers” have shifted the American character, redefining what it means to be an individual in today’s society.
According to synopsis Dr. Twenge uses data from 11 million respondents to reveal shocking truths about this generation, including dramatic differences in sexual behavior and religious practice, and controversial predictions about what the future holds for them and society as a whole. Her often humorous, eyebrow-raising stories about real people vividly bring to life the hopes, disappointments, and challenges of Generation Me. Engaging, controversial, prescriptive, and funny, Generation Me gives Boomers and GenX’ers new and fascinating insights into their offspring, and helps those in their teens, twenties, and thirties find their road to happiness.
