  1. The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable by Nassim Taleb

“This book demonstrates that, when considering risks faced in both personal and professional settings, it is of the utmost importance to build robustness to unexpected and unpredicted negative events. Rather than ignoring the potential for the unlikely, but highly impactful events, individuals and firms must identify hidden areas of vulnerability and the psychological or statistical biases that prevent us from seeing them.”

    Recommended by Brian Mitchell, Loan Officer

  1. Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman
    Recommended by Sarah Hoffman, Director of Digital and Design

“The impact of overconfidence on corporate strategies, the difficulties of predicting what will make us happy in the future, the profound effect of cognitive biases on everything from playing the stock market to planning our next vacation―each of these can be understood only by knowing how the two systems that drive the way we think shape our judgments and decisions.”
