    This passionate, erudite, and groundbreaking book will appeal to readers of Steven Pinker and Thomas Frank. It is a fascinating read for anyone interested in how the mind works, how society works, and how they work together.

    Any additional comments?

    The book helped me see politics in a whole new light. This is a must read for anyone interested in making an affective case for their political views that has the potential to change people's minds.

  • David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants

    In David and Goliath, Malcolm Gladwell challenges how we think about obstacles and disadvantages, offering a new interpretation of what it means to be discriminated against, or cope with a disability, or lose a parent, or attend a mediocre school, or suffer from any number of other apparent setbacks. Gladwell begins with the real story of what happened between the giant and the shepherd boy those many years ago.

    What disappointed you about David and Goliath?

    The narration by the author is distracting.Higher a professional please. Don Leslie could have made this epic. As it is, I can't even get through one pass.

  • Our Political Nature: The Evolutionary Origins of What Divides Us

    Our Political Nature is the first book to reveal the hidden roots of our most deeply held moral values. It shows how political orientations across space and time arise from three clusters of measurable personality traits. These clusters entail opposing attitudes toward tribalism, inequality, and differing perceptions of human nature. Together, these traits are by far the most powerful cause of left-right voting, even leading people to regularly vote against their economic interests.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Our Political Nature to be better than the print version?

    I only read the audio version.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Our Political Nature?

    It answers why babies cry in the middle of the night. Who knew? It's not because they are hungry.
