The Defense Acquisition Professional Reading List is intended to enrich the knowledge and understanding of the civilian, military, contractor and industrial workforce who participate in the entire defense acquisition enterprise. These book recommendations are designed to complement the education and training that are vital to developing essential competencies and skills of the acquisition workforce. Each issue of the Defense Acquisition Research Journal will contain one or more reviews of suggested books.
We encourage our readers to submit reviews of books they believe should be required reading for the defense acquisition professional. The reviews should be 400 words or fewer, describe the book and its major ideas, and explain why it is relevant to defense acquisition. Please send your reviews to the Managing Editor, Defense Acquisition Review Journal (firstname.lastname@example.org).
