Stuck at home?
 
We asked Hitotsubashi ICS faculty to give us their top 3 book recommendations to read in this COVID-19 environment for our students, alumni, and also our blog readers.
 
With more time on our hands, now is the perfect time to get some quality reading done, whether to make sense of this unprecedented age or to briefly escape from all the COVID-19 news. 
 
We will be delivering the recommendations as they come in, so please check our blog every now and then! Today's recommender is Prof. Satoko Suzuki!
 

Enjoy reading!

 
Professor Satoko Suzuki's Picks:
 
 
 
The  COVID - 19  outbreak is an  unprecedented situation  that has resulted in numerous challenges. Professor Harari's two books allow us to think about the past, present, and future of human beings and civilization.       
 
Professor Harari has also recently published an article titled " In the Battle against Coronavirus, Humanity Lacks Leadership" in TIME magazine.
 
 
 
The government, as well as firms' leadership and actions to the COVID-19 outbreak was different across countries. Understanding cultural differences allows us to better see why such differences happened.
