Dave Lutz, the head of exchange-traded funds at JonesTrading, recently released his annual “Spring Break reading” list.
Over 600 Wall Streeters around the world contributed to this list of great books for outdoor reading.
From science-fiction thrillers to business profiles, the full list is stellar, but we’re highlighting only the 25 most frequently mentioned books.
The list includes short reviews of the books — occasionally by the person that recommended them to Lutz.

“Shoe Dog: A Memoir by the Creator of Nike” by Phil Knight
“Was expecting a tale of how Nike rose to global domination, but instead got a very humble, human story about regrets and perseverance.”
“Red Notice: A True Story of High Finance, Murder, and One Man’s Fight for Justice” by Bill Browder
“John Grisham-like thriller, part business and political memoir, and in it Mr. Browder, an early hedge-fund investor in Russia, tells the story of how the Kremlin raided his fund, kicked him out of the country and perpetrated an elaborate financial fraud.
The lawyer he hires to investigate the crime is murdered, and Mr. Browder seeks to avenge his death. It’s a hard book to put down.”
“The Undoing Project” by Michael Lewis
“…a compelling collaboration between two men who have the dimensions of great literary figures. They became heroes in the university and on the battlefield―both had important careers in the Israeli military―and their research was deeply linked to their extraordinary life experiences.”
