Grattan Institute releases PM summer reading list

Australian public policy think tank Grattan Institute has released its annual summer reading list for the Prime Minister.

In a statement on its website announcing the six books included in the list, Grattan Institute said it sought out books that were ‘especially relevant in turbulent times’ and that said ‘something new and interesting about Australia, the world, and our future’.

The titles are:

  • Still Lucky: Why You Should Feel Optimistic about Australia and Its People (Rebecca Huntley, Penguin)
  • The Life to Come (Michelle de Kretser, A&U)
  • The Captured Economy: How the Powerful Enrich Themselves, Slow Down Growth, and Increase Inequality (Brink Lindsey & Steven M Teles, OUP)
  • Burn Out: The endgame for fossil fuels (Dieter Helm, Yale University Press)
  • Breaking the Mould: Taking a Hammer to Sexism in Sport (Angela Pippos, Affirm)
  • The Enigmatic Mr Deakin (Judith Brett, Text).

The Grattan Institute has partnered with bookseller Readings to launch the list at an event at the State Library of Victoria on 5 December with CEO John Daley and broadcaster Sally Warhaft.
