Join L&C Professor Ozan Varol on July 28th, 2020, at 12:00 as he discusses his new book, Think Like a Rocket Scientist, with the Boley Law Library.
Professor Varol’s book, Think Like a Rocket Scientist, reveals the playbook that rocket scientists use to turn the seemingly impossible into the possible. In the book Varol, a former rocket scientist himself, explains how you can use nine simple strategies from rocket science to make your own giant leaps in work and life.
Professor Varol will give a brief presentation on some of these strategies followed by a question and answer interview with Boley law librarian, Meredith Kostek.

The American Enterprise Institute (AEI) was founded in 1938 for the purpose of "bringing about a greater public knowledge and understanding of the social and economic advantages accruing to the American people through the maintenance of the system of free, competitive enterprise." A public policy think tank based in Washington, D.C., AEI scholars conduct original research that advocates for free enterprise and focuses on the world economy, U.S. foreign policy and international security, and domestic political and social issues. AEI documents are now available through the library's subscription to HeinOnline and include nearly 1,500 titles covering 20 different policy areas.
The American Enterprise Institute database brings AEI's collection of scholarship to HeinOnline, providing access to works published by the Institute in HeinOnline's fully-searchable image-based format. Unique to this collection is the ability to search by Policy Area, a subject identifier assigned by AEI to each of their publications that organizes their works into the following areas: economics, foreign and defense policy, society and culture, health care, politics and public opinion, poverty studies, and education; additional Policy Areas within each of these main categories further organize publications into more specific areas of scope. More information on the American Enterprise Institute and their work can be found on the Institute's website: https://www.aei.org/

Exoplanets: Diamond Worlds, Super Earths, Pulsar Planets, and the New Search for Life beyond Our Solar System

The Gene: An Intimate History
by Siddhartha Mukherjee
Recommended by Susan Mandiberg, Lewis & Clark Distinguished Professor of Law
A well-written page-turner about the history of genetics that provides thought-provoking insights into what it means to be human.
by Richard Powers.
Recommended by Joyce Tischler, Professor of Practice, Center for Animal Law Studies
I love this Pulitzer Prize-winning tale of 9 humans whose lives are touched and changed by the overwhelming presence of trees. The descriptions of trees are exquisite.
Rubicon: The Last Years of the Roman Republic
by Tom Holland
Recommended by Nick Fromherz, Staff Attorney,
International Environmental Law Project
Punchy, crisp prose and timeless subject matter combine to make this a must-read for lovers of history and political drama alike.
The book is about twelve-year-old Sophie Brown who moves from an apartment in LA to a farm her parents inherited in Northern California and now Sophie is the owner of some...unusual chickens. It is such a great read that we read it twice back-to-back, and it is also an OBOB book for 2020-2021 for the 3rd-5th grade division!
Waking Up White, and Finding Myself in the Story of Race
by Debby Irving
Recommended by Susan Felstiner, Clinical Professor of Law, Small Business Legal Clinic
Ms. Irving's premise is that white people can't begin to dismantle racism until they begin to see and understand the role of white culture on race in our society. Ms. Irving tells personal stories of her journey of "waking up," and realizing and understanding this role. She gives suggestions on how to have difficult conversations and work toward disrupting the social construct of race. Exercises at the end of every chapter prompt the reader to explore the foundations of their beliefs.
