When he’s not paddleboarding in the Long Island Sound or traveling with his family, Andrew is an avid reader – especially of books about how our brains play tricks on us. Among his favorites are Pre-suasion by Robert Cialdini and You Are
Now Less Dumb by David McRaney. He often rereads his favorite business book, the late Andy Grove’s Only the Paranoid Survive to remind himself of the possibility and impact of what Grove called “strategic inflection points”: sudden changes in an industry landscape that can spell doom or opportunity depending on whether leaders can grasp what’s happening and respond.
