The Little Book on Behavioral Investing: Or how not to be your own worst enemy ~ James Montier

I highly recommend it, so many human biases are explored and can be extrapolated to any and all situation like religious thought. Fascinating findings.

Here is the pdf version, not as easy to read but free.

“I am quite sure now that often, very often, in matters concerning religion and politics a man’s reasoning powers are not above the monkey’s.”~Mark Twain
“Ocean: A body of water occupying about two-thirds of a world made for man - who has no gills.”~ Ambrose Bierce

The Rosie Project.

By Graeme Simsion
[Image: th?id=Ac9739df2cae06f8fca663fce5da6e079&...p;pid=16.1]
Amazon 4.4/5
Barnes and Noble 4.2/5

Don Tillman, professor of genetics, has never been on a second date. He is a man who can count all his friends on the fingers of one hand, whose lifelong difficulty with social rituals has convinced him that he is simply not wired for romance. So when an acquaintance informs him that he would make a "wonderful" husband, his first reaction is shock. Yet he must concede to the statistical probability that there is someone for everyone, and he embarks upon The Wife Project.

First published: Apr 11, 2013
Genre: Fiction - General

2nd read. Asperger's meets romantic comedy. Loved it the first time and again.

Currently reading the Downside Ghost series. Finished the first one and have started the second. Fun read even if the MC is a bit self destructive.

I finally bought and got started on "god is not Great." It's exactly the kind of well-reasoned, uninhibited thinking I adore. And, being Hitchens, the writing is absolutely beautiful.
