1. Lives of the Laureates: Twenty-three Nobel Economists, edited by Roger W. Spencer and David A. Macpherson. I know an earlier edition of this book, my favorite piece is the essay by Thomas Schelling but it is a good book throughout.
2. Eric Topol, The Patient Will See You Now: The Future of Medicine is in Your Hands. I don’t have the time to read a book on medicine just now, but it looks quite interesting, a rebuttal to the claim that consumers are helpless in the world of medicine.
