Looking for a Good Summer Book?

Looking for a good book for this summer? Here is a compilation of some books that the Program in Physical Therapy faculty and staff have been opening so far this summer:

Kim Levenhagen:

The Hunger Games  - a trilogy
 Fun read and does not require a lot of thought process.  Plus my kids and their friends were reading them so we had an impromptu book club by the pool.

Mary Ann Bindbeutel:

Defending Jacob William Landay
Interesting portrait of a family in crisis when the fourteen year old son is accused of murder.   Slow starter but once I got into it I enjoyed it.

The story  of Louie Zamperini - a track and field star of the 1930's, who participated in the Berlin Olympics, was shot down over the ocean in WWII,  adrift in the Pacific for over a month,  captured by the Japanese, held as a POW, finally makes it back to face even more obstacles.  Great story, I was blown away by what this man endured and overcame.

Jessica Moscato:

Business Analytics
I'm sure this will not be popular and I do not enjoy it one bit.  

Kate Lochhead:

Pilgrim at Tinker Creek
Won the 1974 Pulitzer Prize for Nonfiction, which isn’t something I would normally pick up. Sometimes hard to get through, but extremely thought provoking. Makes you examine the ordinary and see it for how extraordinary it is.
