Noah Strycker’s book The Thing with Feathers has been sitting around in our house for about a year. While looking to find some reading to do away from a screen, I turned to it yesterday and today. I’m in the middle now, just having finished the chapter on what penguins fear. The book is written very well, conveying a lot of knowledge in a captivating way. Another book to add to the list of examples of good nonfiction writing. It may come in handy to have such a list if and when I get going with a long-postponed dream of mine to popularize some really promising bits of economic theory (a tall order, I know).
Unlike many other books I start reading, I am sure to finish The Thing with Feathers.
