Stuck in a Rut?
May I suggest reading something you wouldn't otherwise read? Last year I read several books that were well outside of my standard literary comfort zone of science fiction and web development. Here are the most stimulating books that I read over the past year:
- Outliers. Yes, you've probably heard about this book already - even Weird Al Yankovic has read it. But have you read it yet?
- The Science of Fear. The idea that the millions of years of evolution leads to poor decision-making skills for the modern world has encouraged me to re-evaluate several kinds of decisions.
- Bad Astronomy. Want to give your kids the right answer when they why the sky is blue? Read this.
Of course, you don't have to buy these books solely on my say-so. Do what I do - check them out from your local public library.
