Books, music, etc. from January 2017


  • Lewis, The Undoing Project. Fine, I guess. Knowing the studies already, I found the late-chapter parts about Kahneman & Tversky’s “breakup” most interesting.
  • Gazzaniga, Tales from Both Sides of the Brain. Mostly interesting.
  • Mayer, Dark Money. The American poor are doomed.


Music I most enjoyed discovering this month:


Ones I really liked, or loved:

  • Soderbergh, Behind the Candelabra (2013)
  • Gibson, Hacksaw Ridge (2016)
  • Egoyan, Remember (2015)

    Cardiacs – Sing to God is just one of those things that hits a small slice of people in the gut. It includes some songs that I am actually afraid to listen to, because they are SO emotionally powerful.

    Thanks for posting these lists; although I mostly follow for books, I’ve found out about lots of interesting music I wouldn’t have heard.
