Earlier this summer, we gave you a summer reading list … but that was before we discovered the recommendations of organizational sociologist Adam Grant, who’s known for his leadership reading selections.

Here are a few of the titles he recommended this summer, in case you have just a little more time on your hands!

  1. Dedicated: The Case for Commitment in an Age of Infinite Browsing by Pete Davis. A brilliant book about one of the defining predicaments of our time: the temptation to keep our options open.
  2. Noise: A Flaw in Human Judgment by Daniel Kahneman, Olivier Sibony and Cass Sunstein. Some of the world’s greatest behavioral scientists illuminate a hidden force that clouds our judgment and undermines our decisions.
  3. The Extended Mind: The Power of Thinking Outside the Brain by Annie Murphy Paul. An acclaimed science journalist demystifies how our most important thinking often happens outside our heads.
  4. The Heart of Business: Leadership Principles for the Next Era of Capitalism by Hubert Joly. The inside scoop from the CEO who led the remarkable revitalization of Best Buy with a focus on people and purpose.
  5. Subtract: The Untapped Science of Less by Leidy Klotz. An architectural engineering and behavioral science researcher pinpoints a gap in our mental math: We’re constantly adding tasks, commitments and possessions to our lives while neglecting to subtract any.
