Several Books I Would Like To Read The Remainder Of 2014

Several of these I have previously mentioned and I hope I can get to them. First is:

How Not To Be Wrong: The Power Of Mathematical Thinking     Jordan Ellenberg

I am an easy sell on books such as these when it comes to hopefully? becoming a better and deeper thinker. By using mathematical tools, I hope the author will teach me better decision-making methods, especially with complex problems.

The Impossible Exile: Stefan Zweig At The End Of The World     George Prochnik

Ever since I read Worldly Philosopher: The Odyssey Of Albert O. Hirschman, I have been intrigued about reading biographies and memoirs of important figures in history that because of my poor attention span in high school and college, I was entirely unaware. This is definitely one of these books!!!

On The Run: Fugitive Life In An American City     Alice Goffman

Having volunteered at our counties Sheriff’s department for the last six months, I am intrigued by the social science aspect of criminals and the uphill struggle that they have to survive and make the most of their lives. It sounds as if the author having devoted over six years of her life to this endeavor will have a very interesting story to tell.
