It was a busy week with a lot happening in the course of a day. It’s also been over 40°C for most of the week, so everything is hot and tired.
Orphan Rock by Dominique Wilson (available 1st March) arrived thanks to Transit Lounge. Set between Sydney and Paris, it’s about Bessie and her daughter Kathleen. In the late 1800s, Bessie comes to realise that a woman is more than someone to serve her husband. For Kathleen who flees to Paris to escape a secret, she finds the best and worst of humanity during World War II.
World War C by Dr Sanjay Gupta is about lessons learned during COVID-19 and what the future holds. It also looks at how to prepare for the next pandemic.
Behavioural Economics by David Orrell looks at a game-changer for economics, suggesting that people don’t really optimise their own satisfaction, nor are they perfectly rational when making decisions. People think about others, they can be biased and they can be nudged in the ‘right’ direction- what does this mean and how do others exploit it?
