Goodbye and Good Luck!

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

Farewell, dear students.

We say goodbye to Fuqua students, and extend our best wishes to those graduating at the close the 2010-11 academic year.   We hope that in the coming months, you will discover quiet moments to enjoy reading something refreshing – in airport terminals, at the beach or before turning in for the night.

As a parting gift, below are quick summaries of 10 new books, covering topics from advertising to work.   You can download this list along with reviews of 10 additional titles in this PDF document. I hope you enjoy them.

Good luck, everyone!
