Some of Adelphi’s prominent young alumni offer their book choices.

We asked Adelphi’s 10 Under 10 to recommend good reads. Here are their suggestions:

“While on the road and traveling so frequently, I like to pull my mind away from the madness and read things that bring me outside my busy schedule. Currently I’m reading, In Search of Captain Zero. It’s about a man’s surfing trip and things he encounters during it.”

— Scott Karl Dimig ’06

“Right now, I’m reading Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire by James Cymbala. I would highly recommend two books: Work on Purpose by Lara Galinsky and Kelly Nuxoll and In a Pit with A Lion on a Snowy Day by Mark Batterson.”

— Chantal Hamlin ’07

“I would recommend the E-Myth Revisited by Michael Gerber for anyone considering an entrepreneurial future.”

— Robert J. Meekins ’06

“I recently read a great historical novel, The Last of the Wine by Mary Renault. Now, I am finishing up Saturday by Ian McEwan. Not the masterpiece Atonement is, but still quite good of a book.”

— Ivaylo V. Ninov ’08

Long Walk to Freedom by Nelson Mandela;  The Iron Lady: Margaret Thatcher, from Grocer’s Daughter to Prime Minister by John Campbell; My Beloved World by Sonia Sotomayor; India after Gandhi: The History of the World’s Largest Democracy by Ramchandra Guha; Why Nations Fail: The Origins of Power, Prosperity, and Poverty by Daron Acemoglu.”
