Would a post summarising some non-EA books that I think EAs would find interesting be useful? I’d look to include a brief overview of the ideas of each book, my personal enjoyment of it and why it might be pertinent to a certain cause area.
Some initial ideas:
The Emperor’s New Mind, Sir Roger PenroseNatives, AkalaFoundation, Issac AsimovThe Pig That Want’s To Be Eaten, Julian BagginiThe Discourses, EpictetusWhy We Can’t Wait, Martin Luther King Jr.On Writing, Steven KingPassing, Nella LarsenDown and Out In Paris and London, George OrwellRed Mars, Kim Stanley RobinsonThe Gulag Archipelago, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn Look Who’s Back, Timur Vermes
I welcome any suggestions for how I might develop this idea :)
Yes! I think people on both sides of the table (employers & prospective employees) would find your insight useful! Recruitment is a big deal and is an area of much uncertainty for people. After all, most people are not regularly going through the process. It might help to quell some apprehension.
