Currently, I am reading Smile or Die by Barbara Ehrenreich, it is alright. It basically raises concern on how positive thinking can get distorted into the land of delusion where anything bad that happens to you, even illness, are your fault and mean you didn't have a positive attitude. Looking for the best outcome ignoring what are the most likely ones and prepare accordingly. The book has mixed reviews and I feel like the author jumps to extremes to impulse her views but it is a nudge to make you more aware and get critical about what we're being fed.
Fashion, Faith and Fantasy in the New Physics of the Universe, by Roger Penrose
A brilliant scientist, he has worked with Stephen Hawking previously. This book deals with string theory, quantum mechanics and cosmology, and what we might be forgetting or doing wrong in these fields. Coincidentally, he visited Oslo yesterday to promote the same book, and I got to ask him a question and got my book signed.
That's pretty cool. Congrats on getting the book signed.
