Another 3 great books

I've just read "True Enough" by Farhad Manjoo, an extremely enlightening and yet disturbing book.  What's disturbing is captured in the subtitle: "Learning to Love In A Post-Fact Society".  

On a related note, I'm about halfway through "Ethics for the Real World" by Ron Howard and Clinton Korver (full disclosure: Clint is a friend of mine), and it is a very useful book, providing motivation and help in developing your personal code of ethics.  I'm glad I've read these books in close proximity, since I will now incorporate some appoach to truth into my code of ethics.  That's harder than it seems like it should be.

The third interesting book is "This I Believe", a collection of essays that you can hear on NPR.   This inspiring and sometimes amusing collection motivates me to write down what I believe.  Gee, maybe those would be good blog posts.  Or maybe not, but I may post them anyway for my own benefit!

BTW: There is now available for purchase "This I Believe 2".  Have to order that soon... or perhaps after I've written my own.

All three of these books are excellent for expanding thought and reassessing our own perspectives.  Enjoy.
