The Information’s 2015 Book List

The Information subscribers love a good read. So just as we did last year (2014 selections reprised at the end), we asked some of you to suggest the best books you read in 2014.

You generated an eclectic list with recommendations on everything from graphic memoirs to management tomes to cookbooks. Here’s the group with notes from the subscribers who recommended the titles.

We’d love it if the rest of you would comment with your favorites on the article online. (Email me if you don’t yet have commenting enabled and would like it.)

Happy reading in 2015!
