Our brains are pattern-detecting machines. Although this is very important for survival and making sense of the world, it can also lead us to be blind to randomness and chance. We often see connections where, in reality, there aren't any. This can impair our ability to make better decisions and deal with uncertainty. Controversial best-selling author Nassim Taleb explores the phenomenon of randomness and helps you to better understand underlying connections in general. Highly fascinating!

We make astonishingly simple mistakes every day, and we make the same "types" of mistakes, Ariely discovers. We consistently overpay, underestimate, and procrastinate. We fail to understand the profound effects of our emotions on what we want, and we overvalue what we already own. Yet these misguided behaviors are neither random nor senseless. They're systematic and predictable--making us "predictably" irrational.

Osho was a highly controversial spiritual leader and commentator. In this book, he writes about a deep and profound idea - namely, that we are afraid of the unknown. We are scared of changes in life and of everything we can't predict. But it's exactly this unknown that bears the potential for growth and development. If you don't seek the unknown, if you cling to what is familiar, you will stand still. Osho makes a convincing case for why we need to embrace the unknown.

Erich Fromm's thesis is that two modes of existence compete within each individual: the having mode and the being mode. To Have or To Be offers inspiring perspectives on life which analyze our cultural and societal problems with extreme sharpness. I've read this book twice and will re-read it again at some point because it has so much to teach about a more fulfilling mode of living your life. Read if: you have at least a little interest in philosophy and want to understand how your mode of thinking, talking, and acting shapes the quality of your life and how our society could change for the better.
