This week, we’ve been looking at the subject of investment, and we thought it might be time for you to invest in some good books for the summer. Here are a few suggestions from some of our guests:

Nela Richardson, analyst for Bloomberg Government, picks:

  • Detroit: An American Autopsy,” by Charlie LeDuff: “At one time, Detroit was the best about America. It had a large manufacturing base, high levels of home ownership, and a blue-collar work ethic. But Detroit, like so many American cities, is now in tatters since the financial crisis. LeDuff provides a gripping tale of crime, political scandal and economic hardship.”

Ramit Sethi, author of “I Will Teach You to be Rich,” suggests:

  • Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think” by Brian Wansink: “For many of us, food, just like money, is one of our top worries. We know we should spend less, just like we know we should eat less. ‘Mindless Eating’ shows us how our own psychology works against us to make us eat more and spend more than we even realize. Wansink shows us some fascinating solutions.”

Kelli Grant, reporter for CNBC, recommends:

  • The Plateau Effect, by Bob Sullivan and Hugh Thompson: “Everyone does hit a plateau, everything from trying to lose some weight to trying to get a promotion. It might not come across as a straight money book, a lot of people are trying to get a raise, they are trying to build their career, maybe even build a business. It’s got some interesting strategies that can really benefit consumers.” 

 Want more? Here are some picks from the past and our Facebook followers:

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
