Thirty books to help us understand the world in 2020
Feeling mostly despair these days about a writing project that isn't shaping up as I hoped, it's a nice Sunday surprise to see "Re-Engineering Humanity," the book I wrote with , to be on the Observer list of 30 books to understand 2020.
Very grateful to for including The People vs Democracy in her list of books to read to understand 2020. (The only conspicuous omission from her list is her own book: The Twilight of Democracy, which helped me understand what comes next.)
