Lifecycle Investing: A New, Safe, and Audacious Way to Improve the Performance of Your Retirement Portfolio
Ian Ayres ’81, ’86JD, professor of law, and Barry Nalebuff, professor of management
Basic Books, $24.95

Your “one chance to get it right” as an investor, the authors argue, is during youth—when you should use leverage to invest 200 percent of your wealth. The book recommends dramatic shifts in your investment mix as you age.


Unfinished Business: One Man’s Extraordinary Year of Trying to Do the Right Things
Lee Kravitz ’75
Bloomsbury, $25

In his mid-50s, Kravitz lost his job as editor of Parade magazine. Rather than return immediately to the world of workaholism, he decided to spend one year (underwritten by his severance package and working spouse) completing ten tasks of “human connectedness.” Unfinished Business describes this karmic journey.


American Insurgents, American Patriots: The Revolution of the People
T. H. Breen ’64, ’68PhD
Hill and Wang, $27

“Without tens of thousands of ordinary people willing to set aside their work, homes, and family to take up arms in expectation of killing and possibly being killed,” writes Breen, the American Revolution would not have happened. In this account, he chronicles how these everyday insurgents helped enable U.S. independence.


Grand Strategies: Literature, Statecraft, and World Order
Charles Hill, senior lecturer in international studies and humanities
Yale University Press, $27.50

Alexander the Great brought The Iliad along on his military campaigns. Mao treasured Cao Xuequin’s Dream of the Red Chamber. In this examination of “literature as a tutor for statecraft,” veteran diplomat Hill mines an array of works for insight about “the foundation stones of world order.”
