Interesting Books, Alternative Views

Here are three books I haven’t read, but I’ve recently heard interviews with the authors which makes me interested in the books.  I list them together because they seem to have something in commom in that the authors are taking alternative perspectives on society.

Bright-sided: How the Relentless Promotion of Positive Thinking Has Undermined America
~ Barbara Ehrenreich
 
Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions
~ Dan Ariely
 
SuperFreakonomics: Global Cooling, Patriotic Prostitutes, and Why Suicide Bombers Should Buy Life Insurance
~ Steven D. Levitt, Stephen J. Dubner
 
I might read these books eventually or else I’ll see what others have written about their ideas.  In particular, Ariely’s book intrigues me.  If there is one thing I’m sure about in life, it’s that humans are irrational.
