My Sabbatical Reading List (for starters anyway)

One of the hoped for benefits of a sabbatical so far seems to be panning out.  My book pile that has grown way too large is finally getting some serious attention.  The books I brought with me, both in the old fashioned form and on the kindle, include the following (not listing the fiction):

  • Predictably Irrational
  • An Introduction to  Behavioral Economics
  • The Ethical Brain
  • Three Scientists and Their Gods (Thanks Neal)
  • From Poverty to Prosperity
  • Complexity: A Guided Tour
  • The Difference: How the Power of Diversity Creates Better Groups, Firms Schools and Societies
  • The Age of Wonder: How the Romantic Generation Discovered the Beauty and Terror of Science

Since arriving, Sean has added Greed and Grievance: Economic Agendas in Civil Wars to the pile.  Terra is worried that since I just finished my first book on the pile (Predictably Irrational), I might run out of material.  Fortunately, I return to the states for a week in late September, so I will be able to replenish my stash, assuming of course that there aren’t too many additions from here.  My pile in Seattle is certainly capable of sustaining me for quite some time. However, in case I need it, there is a good used book store not far away, so I need not fret.
