  • Ten Percent Happier by Dan Harris

    This book is likely just the kind of introduction to meditation that would help a lot of people be more open to the practice.

  • Human Scale Revisited: A New Look at the Classic Case for a Decentralist Future by Kirkpatrick Sale

    I have long said that if I were to write a book, it would be about distributed systems in the world, decentralization. But my notions were fairly narrow and thinking mostly of examples rather than creating a systematic ecological philosophy. I’m glad I came across Human Scale Revisited because it’s exactly the kind of book I would have hoped to write only many times better. It’s helped solidify a lot of my own inchoate thinking and also to understand why some things just don’t resonate with me, which is one large part of why we ended up in Olympia rather than Seattle or Portland. It’s a long book and fairly detailed, but I highly recommend it.
