Lloyd Blankfein (CEO/Goldman Sachs)Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein has been reading this sweeping history book for years.
An original history of man's greatest adventure: his search to discover the world around him. In the compendious history, Boorstin not only traces man's insatiable need to know, but also the obstacles to discovery and the illusion that knowledge can also put in our way. Covering time, the earth and the seas, nature and society, he gathers and analyzes stories of the man's profound quest to understand his world and the cosmos.
