Prof. Hiroshi Ono says that most books that he reads for work are too specialized and technical which would have no appeal to a general audience, for example, statistical methods in the social sciences, handbook of labor economics, etc. So, today, he has given us his top 3 choices of fiction books, which is a great twist in the recommendation line-up we have so far!

Hiroshi explained that he always enjoyed reading fiction, and that he read a wide range of fiction books in Japanese and in English when he was in high school and college.  But he started reading more after an editor from an academic journal gave him advice some 20 years ago.   The editor suggested that academics can benefit from reading fiction, because it helps them build a good story, and it helps them to write.  

We believe this is great advice even for business professionals.
