Harvard MBA Professors’ Summer Reading Recommendations

Harvard MBA Faculty Release Summer Reading Recommendations

With summer in full swing, MBAs may have some spare time on their hands.

Harvard Business School faculty recently rounded up a few of their summer reading recommendations with topics ranging from personal growth to organizational change.

Here are a few select books from the list:

The Fearless Organization: Creating Psychological Safety in the Workplace for Learning, Innovation, and Growth by Amy Edmondson

A practical guide for teams and organizations serious about succeeding in the modern economy, this book explores the culture of psychological safety and offers a blueprint for bringing it to life.

The Fearless Organization touches on themes of how to unlock the full potential of organizations by supporting a culture that enables all team members to bring their full selves to the table,” Euvin Naidoo, Senior Lecturer of Business Administration at HBS, says.

Edge: Turning Adversity into Advantage by Laura Huang

Written by HBS professor Laura Huang, Edge: Turning Adversity into Advantage teaches how people can create success from the challenges and biases we think hold us back and transform them to work in our favor.

“Huang combines her research with compelling personal anecdotes to provide an inspirational guide on how to overcome the challenges that we face and get ahead on our personal and professional goals,” Andy Wu, Assistant Professor of Business Administration at HBS, says.

The Rape Of Nanking: The Forgotten Holocaust Of World War II by Iris Chang

A New York Times bestseller, “The Rape of Nanking” recounts one of history’s most brutal and forgotten massacres of the Japanese invasion of China’s capital city on the eve of World War II.

For HBS professor Laura Huang, the book serves as a refresher of her own history and ancestry.

“I think it’s so important for us to know about where we came from and what our ancestors experienced,” Huang says.

Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? by Beverly Daniel Tatum

Beverly Daniel Tatum is a psychologist, administrator, and educator who has focused on the topic of racism throughout her career.

In this book, Tatum argues that straight talk about our racial identities is essential if we are serious about enabling communication across racial and ethnic divides.
