“Boomerang: Travels in the New Third World”

While America went through a recession in the 2000s, other parts of the world went through a financial crisis at the same time. Michael Lewis wrote this book as a way to look at that credit crisis and how it impacted people in different countries, including Iceland, Germany, and Italy.

It closely examines issues that all professionals must face such as when to choose small markets over larger markets and when to reach out to customers.
