Confluence by Hampton Smith

This book delves into the fort's long and complicated story: its construction, the daily lives of its inhabitants and those who lived nearby, the shift in its function when a spectacular influx of speculators and land-hungry immigrants flooded the territory, its participation in wresting the land from the Dakota, and its evolution as two cities grew up around it and its roles in two world wars-up to the reinterpretation of the fort as Minnesotans mark its two-hundredth anniversary.

Risk by Stanley McChrystal and Anna Butrico

By closely monitoring these controls, we can maintain a healthy Risk Immune System that allows us to effectively anticipate, identify, analyze, and act upon the ever-present possibility that things will not go as planned.
