Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 4/7/22

Halfway through the year and of course it’s freezing! It seems like winter is finally here, which means that you really shouldn’t stray away from a blanket or heater…or when Parcel Post is kind enough to deliver on the weekend!

Young Women by Jessica Moor arrived thanks to Allen & Unwin. When Emily meets Tasmin, her life changes as the two become inseparable. But when a news article breaks about previous sexual assault, she finds that Tasmin has been hiding her past and secrets set to change everything…

Unvaxxed by Dyani Lewis is one of the Crikey Reads about the antivaccination movement in Australia and its history. It discusses vaccine mandates and the fallout for families, as well as the effects on science and society.

How to Prevent the Next Pandemic by Bill Gates (yes, that Bill Gates) is about how we can use what we’ve learned from the COVID pandemic to prevent the next one, utilising infectious disease experts and collaboration between public and private sectors, and between countries.

Rationality by Steven Pinker is about how humans think – and it’s not irrationally. We can think in ways that suit most of our daily living, but fail to utilise fully tools of reasoning, such as probability, causal inference and decision making in uncertainty.

  1. Nice looking assortment of books. I saw Bill Gates’ name and wondered what he knows on the topic of the book. It is outside his usual field. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

I enjoy reading your comments! Thanks for stopping by.
