0214 BOOKrev2I'm not naturally a recreational reader,” says Dave Rathbun, the president of popular ski resort Mt. Bachelor. “However, if time, circumstance and topic align, I occasionally read for pure pleasure. I consider myself a lifelong learner and, as such, read many business-related articles online and on my smartphone. I also try to share interesting and relevant articles with our management team to help broaden their horizons. As time and opportunity present themselves, I will pick up a book, but if I could be outdoors skiing, playing golf, mountain biking or fishing, I would be happier!”

 

 

American Triumvirate
by James Dodson

“A biographical account of the three great professional golfers who grew up during the Depression and ushered in the modern era of golf: Byron Nelson, Sam Snead and Ben Hogan. They shared common experiences growing up as caddies and becoming enthralled by the game and the world of their well-to-do clients. The book conveys many colorful stories illustrating why these three golfers should be remembered as the founding fathers of modern golf.”

Physics of the Future
by Michio Kaku

“The view of what life could be like at the end of this century is fascinating and a little scary. Kaku examines forward-looking work in the fields of computers, medicine, energy and space exploration. My grandmother lived to the age of 99, growing up in the roaring 20s, and living through the 20th century’s monumental events. Having read Kaku’s book, I have a better understanding now of how she felt about  ‘all our gadgets’ and how our generation will likely view the world dominated by our children and grandchildren in the not-so-distant future.”
