Another list for your reading, gift giving and collection development pleasure. I've cobbled this together from the critic-by-critic list I point to above.
- You Are Not a Gadget: a Manifesto by Jaron Lanier
- The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
- The Ego Tunnel: The Science of the Mind and the Myth of the Self by Thomas Metzinger
- The Plundered Planet by Paul Collier
I'm always looking for recommendations and notifications of book lists as they appear in various media outlets. If you see one that I haven't covered, please let me know at jdupuis at yorku dot ca or in the comments.
I am picking up a lot of lists from Largehearted Boy.
