Let's meet at Tap and Mallet to discuss "You are Now Less Dumb: How to Conquer Mob Mentality, How to Buy Happiness, and All the Other Ways to Outsmart Yourself"!
About the book: A mix of popular psychology and trivia, You Are Now Less Dumb is grounded in the idea that we all believe ourselves to be objective observers of reality--except we’re not. But that’s okay, because our delusions keep us sane. Expanding on this premise, McRaney provides eye-opening analyses of seventeen ways we fool ourselves every day. McRaney also reveals the true price of happiness, and how to avoid falling for our own lies.
We'll also be picking our October book, in the category of "Nonfiction: Books about Art or Music." Bring a suggestion of a book for our vote (preferably one with multiple copies available in the county library system)!
About the book: New York Times bestselling author Roxane Gay has written with intimacy and sensitivity about food and bodies, using her own emotional and psychological struggles as a means of exploring our shared anxieties over pleasure, consumption, appearance, and health. In Hunger, she casts an insightful and critical eye on her childhood, teens, and twenties—including the devastating act of violence that acted as a turning point in her young life—and brings readers into the present and the realities, pains, and joys of her daily life.
