Kathleen Draper, co-author of Burn: Igniting a New Carbon Drawdown Economy to End the Climate Crisis answers my interview questions and highlights some interesting books! Before jumping into the interview, please check out Kathleen's book Burn: Igniting a New Carbon Drawdown Economy to End the Climate Crisis:
Q. Do you have a favourite smart thinking book (and why that book)?
Not really. I have a few authors that I gravitate to like the Heath brothers, Seth Godin, Malcolm Gladwell for Business, Jared Diamond for environment. I like authors that can distill science into understandable and entertaining stories that make me happy to learn about diverse subjects.
Q. What's the most recent smart thinking book you've read (and how would you rate it)?
I’m not sure if these are considered smart books, but I am reading various books by Chris Magwood. Currently the one I am reading is Sustainable Home Design which is very good. I’m building a sustainable home so anything in that genre is open game at the moment!
Q. Do you have a favourite childhood book?
Not from my childhood, but when raising my daughter my favorite was The Giving Tree and hers was The Magic School Bus series.
Q. Do you prefer reading on paper, Kindle or listening to an audiobook?
Audio mostly but paper when there is time. Never Kindle.
Q. Do you have a favourite bookshop (and why that shop)?
No. I live in the country, and we have fewer and fewer of them. But I do love my local library!
Many thanks to Kathleen for answering my questions and for her recommendations!
