Review: American Nerd: The Story of My People

American Nerd: The Story of My People
American Nerd: The Story of My People by Benjamin Nugent

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I very much enjoyed these thoughtful essays on the history and sociology of my tribe. Nugent is sympathetic but still critical and he’s tried, possibly successfully, to leave his early nerdom behind. For better or worse I seem to have a lifetime membership.

Review: Mastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes

Mastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes
Mastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes by Maria Konnikova

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A fun tour of modern behavioral psychology through the lens of Sherlock Holmes. Specifically, how can we be more like Holmes, proceeding mindfully through the world, and less like Watson, just muddling through. Thanks Amy!
