I've only read the first chapter, but Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly is good so far.

I really liked The Undercover Economist by Tim Harford when I read it some years ago. I can't remember any of the details because it was when C was a baby and I was chronically sleep-deprived, but I *think* it was on a level with Guns, Germs & Steel or possibly a bit easier going. What I do remember is it shaking up some of my preconceptions about political positions through making plausible economic arguments, and one of my ongoing ambitions is to find the time to read it again with enough brain to actually engage with the arguments.

Oh! Sustainable Energy: without the hot air by David MacKay is clearly written, and really interesting, and is relevant to politics!

Soundbite

Miscellaneous. Eclectic. Random. Perhaps markedly literate, or at least suffering from the compulsion to read any text that presents itself, including cereal boxes.
