Recommended Reading for Counselors of Real Estate
In this first appearance of The Reading List, Marilyn Hett, CRE, recommends:
Our Towns: A 100,000-mile Journey into the Heart of America
By James Fallows and Deborah Fallows
In a description from the publisher, Penguin Books’ editors describe Our Towns as “a vivid, surprising portrait of the civic and economic reinvention taking place in America, town by town and generally out of view of the national media. A realistically positive and provocative view of the country between its coasts.”
Ms. Hett, consultant, Collaborative Community Consulting, St. Petersburg, Fla., explains: “It’s a great read… James Fallows is a long-time writer for The Atlantic. As they visit small cities in the U.S. (2012-2017) which are successfully revitalizing, they discover everyone works together on a community level despite the divisive national discourse. They found ideas and examples of creative collaboration and partnerships in revitalizing small communities, and conclude with a checklist that helps fine tune a city’s ‘elevator pitch’ to investors.“
Counselors: Tell us about a real estate or business-related book you found particularly interesting, or compelling…and why. We will include selected recommendations in future issues of the CRE Newsline.
