Despite my love-hate relationship with non-fiction, I constantly coming across books I want to read. In an attempt to impose some discipline on my reading I thought I would publicly commit and comment on the next couple of books in the queue.
At over five hundred pages, this book is a little larger than I normally take on but it is so fascinating and potentially useful that I had to dive in. I have just started reading but am going to try to tackle this in bigger chunks so I can 1) finish it and 2) get more out of it.
This collection of essays by my friend Hunter Baker tackle an important subject and one with great relevance today. I always enjoy reading Hunter’s take on meaty subject so I can’t wait to be able to finish this collection. Thankfully it is much shorter than the first book in this list!
Last, but certainly not least, comes the latest from Richard Brookhiser. I have a simple rule: Brookhiser writes a book, I read it. He is a master of popular, engaging and insightful history; razor sharp biographies that flush out impact and meaning not just a collection of dates and facts. This is a must read.
So there you have it, cognitive science and self-help, political philosophy and cultural engagement; and historical biography top my TBR list.
What books are you looking forward to?
