Book Report DUE DATE: March 29, 2017 Assignment: Changing the way consumers purchase, eat, and discard food is important for creating a more sustainable food system. There are a number of notable publications that have been produced that relate to the future of our food system.

Behind the Kitchen Door by Saru Jayaraman Exploring the food system from a different angle, Jayaraman points to the deeply troubling labor practices that exist in the food industry. With personal stories and interviews, Jayaraman unveils the low wages and grueling positions that farm and kitchen workers endure. 6. The Last Hunger Season: A Year In An African Farm Community On The Brink Of Change by Roger Thurow Thurow spent a year with four women smallholder farmers in western Kenya to document their struggles in supporting and feeding themselves and their families. He evaluates the extent to which the work of initiatives like the One Acre Fund can help these farmers pull themselves up and defeat hunger and poverty. 8. The Urban Food Revolution: Changing the Way We Feed Cities by Peter Ladner According to the World Health Organization, more than half of the world’s population now lives in cities. The Urban Food Revolution looks at the ways in which urban food systems need to change in order to become healthier and more sustainable 9. Diet for a Hot Planet: The Climate Crisis at the End of Your Fork and What You Can Do About It by Anna Lappe Anna Lappe’s Diet for a Hot Planet outlines the ways in which the current food system contributes to climate change, the barriers to a true reform, and what consumers can do to provoke change. 10. WASTE: Uncovering the Global Food Scandal by Tristram Stuart Uncovering waste in production and processing, the role of supermarkets in passing on wastefulness to suppliers and consumers, and consumers’ wasteful practices at home, Stuart’s book explores the many pathways of waste that exist in our food system. Even better, his book provides examples of countries where the food system is working, and offers tips on reducing and reusing our food. 11. The Backyard Homestead: Produce all the food you need on just a quarter acre! edited by Carleen Madigan The Backyard Homestead tells would-be farmers how to farm on just a quarter of an acre. 12. The Perfect Protein: The Fish Lover's Guide to Saving the Oceans and Feeding the World by Andy Sharpless Sharpless argues that seafood will be the best source of sustainable protein for a rapidly growing global population. And he highlights the importance of protecting the health and biodiversity of wild fish populations. 13. The Essential Urban Farmer by Novella Carpenter and Willow Rosenthal For those without a backyard, the Essential Urban Farmer is the essential tutorial to begin growing food in cities. LEADERSHIP BOOKS: The Manager’s Bookshelf: A Mosaic of Contemporary Views by Jon L. Pierce, John W. Newstrom This book reads like an exquisite tasting menu – with excerpts from 48 management best sellers woven together in sections on motivation, teamwork, change, and decision-making. If you want quick and broad exposure to the best of the best, start here. It’s also a great place to start if you’re building a business library and want to know which books to pick up first. Talent is Overrated: What Really Separates World-Class Performers from Everybody Else by Geoff Colvin Written by Fortune Magazine’s Senior Editor at Large, this book is a gold mine. Colvin distills the pervasive myth that great leadership requires inborn talent. Focus on chapters 4-8, which discuss ‘deliberate practice’ – one of the best tools for any manager at any level Picks for Personal and Professional Growth The following books are designed for personal growth, but the lessons learned apply just as well to work as they do to life: The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are by Brené Brown Managers, like everyone else, have hang-ups. Hang-ups like needing to be liked or needing to be ‘right’ all the time can get managers into trouble (or is it just me?). This isn’t a management book, but you’ll find yourself becoming a better leader as you settle into your own skin. Steering by Starlight: The Science and Magic of Finding Your Destiny by Martha Beck Authenticity is one of the marks of a great leader. Both deep and surprisingly funny, this book will help you reconnect with your authentic self. Apply what you learn to develop your own authentic management style and you’ll find yourself a happier and more effective leader. I use principles from this book in my coaching practice all the time. Tried and True Classics I said we shouldn’t waste time talking about the undisputed classics. I take it back. These two books are simply too good not to mention. Read them. Immediately, if possible: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons In Personal Change by Stephen R. Covey This book addresses the human side of management. Covey discusses the importance of fairness, integrity, honesty, and dignity, and argues that the habits of successful leaders take place where knowledge, skill and desire intersect. This book will help you add self-awareness and strategy to your leadership toolkit. How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie This management book stands the test of time like no other (the first edition was published in 1936!). While the title may suggest that management means manipulation, Carnegie’s real message is that people need to feel important and appreciated – simple advice that rings as true today as it did 80 years ago. ...
