My Top 3 Books in November

 

  1. Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress by Steven Pinker is worth to read. It paints a more positive picture of progress, telling that not all is lost as we often enough like to think. That in the past everything was better. It wasn’t, and Pinker has the data to prove it.
  2. Empire of the Ants by Bernard Werber was a reread. I read the book as a child and love it then. No surprise here that I loved it this time around. This book combines facts about ants with a story.
  3. Senlin Ascends by Josiah Bancroft was a delightful read. I went in not knowing what to expect and got a “growing up story” for a headmaster who is figuring out how to survive at Babel. Well written, and this is what self-published books should look and read like.

Those are my top picks for past month’s reading. It was tricky to choose one over another because all the books I read were even. I debated if I should add Talking to Strangers by Malcolm Gladwell on the list, but Empire of the Ants and Senlin Ascends were better executed in their genres. I had a lot of issues with Talking to Strangers and how easily Malcolm Gladwell jumps into generalized conclusions, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a good book. He makes some great points.

Happy reading!
