living rationally 1108 lg Really Great Reading Ideas for the WeekendHi everyone,

Here are this week’s recommendations:

1. The Rationality Project: One Man’s Quest to Ignore His Gut Instinct, by A.J. Jacobs: I defy you to read this without laughing out loud.

2. How I Know I Love My Wife, by Steven Levitt (of Freakonomics fame): I defy you to read/watch this without tearing up.

3. People of the Book, by Geraldine Brooks: We’ll be discussing this fantastic book on Wednesday night, for our second meeting of the QUIET Book Club. It’s not too late to dig in!

Let me know if you enjoy these picks! and have a wonderful weekend.

*Thanks to Delia Lloyd of for directing me to Steven Levitt’s talk.
