Worthwhile Books May 2022These are the books that I read in the second quarter, 2022 that are worth your time.
Books I've read lately that I think you might find enjoyable are the focus of this 100% foreshadowing-free edition of “worthwhile books.”
- Cyber Peace, edited by Scott J. Shackelford, Frederick Douzet, and Christopher Ankersen. Rob Knake and I have a chapter, Trust But Verify. Open access.
- The Age of Surveillance Capitalism, Shoshana Zuboff.
- The Sense of Style, Steven Pinker (My short review).
- Write Useful Books, Rob Fitzpatrick.
- The Ultimate Star Wars and Philosophy and Star Wars and Philosophy: More Powerful than You Can Possibly Imagine. Both edited “chapter” volumes.
- The World According To Star Wars, Cass Sunstein.
- Stencil Wars - PocketArt: The Ultimate Book on Star Wars Inspired Street Art.
- Termination Shock, Neal Stephenson.
- The Pursuit of the Pankera: A Parallel Novel About Parallel Universes, Robert Heinlein. This is the manuscript which became Number of the Beast and is most interesting either to his fans or in seeing the power of good editing.
- From a Certain Point of View: The Empire Strikes Back. The second volume of Star Wars, told from the perspective of minor characters.
