What I’ve been reading and what has arrived in my pile

Jeremy Bailenson, Experience on Demand: What Virtual Reality Is, How It Works, and What It Can Do. Usually I am allergic to “general summary about some new topic in tech” books, but this one is quite good.

Michela Wrong, I Didn’t Do It For You: How the World Betrayed a Small African Nation, is in fact, as a number of you had suggested, probably the best book on Eritrea.

Matthew Engelke, How to Think Like an Anthropologist, is a very good introduction to exactly what the title promises.

Robert Wuthnow tries his hand at The Left Behind: Decline and Rage in Rural America.

Benn Steil, The Marshall Plan: Dawn of the Cold War.

Carl Zimmer, She Has Her Mother’s Laugh: The Powers, Perversions, and Potential of Heredity.
