Only two of these titles are written by women — the other being Elaine Howard Ecklund’s Science vs. Religion: What Scientists Really Think. I’m left wondering about the disparity of voices represented in this list, and challenged to scrutinize the many other lists I’ll be encountering before the end of the year. I’m also reminded to step up my game as a producer and constantly question my preferences and dig more deeply for guests that may fly under the radar for various reasons.
I guess that’s my New Year’s resolution to you. Call me on it when I’m not making good on my promise. Now is as good as time as any to ask you what books were left off this list. What are wise voices and topics we should consider for 2011?
