Books to begin a new year

The past few weeks have been light in terms of how much I got to read. Here are 2 worth mentioning:

- A Passion to Win : Sumner Redstone and Peter Knobler : The story of Sumner Redstone and his Viacom empire. The most important sections are the ones detailing the negotiations and tactics behind the various mergers - Blockbuster, Paramount and CBS (which came undone last week).

- How We Got Here - A slightly irreverent history of technology and markets : Andy Kessler: Not as great as Running Money, but still a good sequel.

Previous reading list post.
