Dean Minor’s Winter Reading List

Lloyd B. Minor, MD, dean of Stanford School of Medicine, recently shared his new list of recommended reading for the winter on social media (InstagramLinkedInFacebook, Twitter). Describing his recommendations, Dean Minor stated:

For my recommended reading this winter, I was drawn to books that illuminated hidden worlds, shared insights about others, and challenged my assumptions. One explores the fundamental unit of all life on earth, while another examines how to manifest the kernels of inspiration. Two provide glimpses into lived experiences that differ from mine: how to find healing after trauma and how young people born in the digital age approach the world. The last is a beautifully written, heart-wrenching novel about overcoming adversity. I hope you enjoy these recommendations. 

You can read Dean Minor’s recommendations through Lane Library:
