Matthew Fleharty posted a topic in Contracting WorkforceI'm currently on the hunt for new reading material and I figured while I try to help myself, why not help others. For those also looking for something to read related to contracting, a list that I have found helpful compiled by Vern can be found here (www.wifcon.com/anal/RecommendedReading.pdf). Similarly, I'm sure other members of this community have books that they share when asked for recommendations, but haven't taken the time to compile a list (I'm guilty myself) so I'd like to ask the Wifcon members for a simple, easy request: Provide just one recommendation for a book that would be beneficial for a contracting professional to read. I'll start: My recommendation is Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman (https://www.amazon.com/Thinking-Fast-Slow-Daniel-Kahneman/dp/0374533555). In a career field where making sound decisions is a critical trait, one should understand how the mind works, how it can deceive us, how to recognize those situations, and how to adjust accordingly. What you'll learn from this book is as useful (if not more) in life as it is in contracting. What's yours?
