Happy Wednesday to everyone. This week we are featuring books that might be up your alley if you have decided to spend some time at home and have become introspective. That introspection might have you asking complex questions that are tough to answer on your own. We have some books that might help you. There are seven (including the one in this intro) and then a link to a longer list on our website. Browse comfortably you marvelous creature you.
Our friends at Leading Edge Seminars have had to adjust a thing or two and we are pleased they are continuing with their invaluable seminars online. Please see below for more details.
As we at Caversham adjust to the new reality we are trying our hand at videos and various modern things. Here is a video of me talking about the green book in the picture. Please give us a call or an email if there is anything we can help you with. Stay well out there.

If This Isn't Nice, What Is? (Even More) Expanded Third Edition: The Graduation Speeches and Other Words to Live By
Kurt Vonnegut

For this first-ever paperback edition of If This Isn’t Nice, What Is?, the beloved collection of Kurt Vonnegut’s campus speeches, editor Dan Wakefield has unearthed three early gems as a sort of prequel—the anti-war Moratorium Day speech he gave in Barnstable, Massachusetts, in October 1969, a 1970 speech to Bennington College recommending “skylarking,” and a 1974 speech to Hobart and William Smith Colleges about the importance of extended families in an age of loneliness.

How to Make Art at the End of the World: A Manifesto for Research-Creation
Natalie Loveless

In recent years, the rise of research-creation—a scholarly activity that considers art practices as research methods in their own right—has emerged from the organic convergences of the arts and interdisciplinary humanities, and it has been fostered by universities wishing to enhance their public profiles. [More. . .]

How to Live a Good Life: A Guide to Choosing Your Personal Philosophy
Massimo Pigliucci, Skye C. Cleary, and Daniel A. Kaufman (Eds)

A collection of essays by fifteen philosophers presenting a thoughtful, introductory guide to choosing a philosophy for living an examined and meaningful life. A VINTAGE ORIGINAL

Socrates famously said "the unexamined life is not worth living," but what does it mean to truly live philosophically? [More. . .]

Let's Pretend This Never Happened (A Mostly True Memoir)
Jenny Lawson

When Jenny Lawson was little, all she ever wanted was to fit in. That dream was cut short by her fantastically unbalanced father and a morbidly eccentric childhood. It did, however, open up an opportunity for Lawson to find the humor in the strange shame-spiral that is her life, and we are all the better for it. (special thanks to Neil's cat Xena for running the photo shoot on this one)

Bad
Peter Ferguson

BAD is all around us, influencing and guiding everything we do. We are constrained by it, hurt by it and delighted by it. Even if you think you're doing good, you're just raising bulwarks against the bad. Bad comes in many subtle forms. Peter Ferguson shows how to be aware of them, how they can affect us and how to work with them. But this is no earnest treatise. It's also a meditation. And a bit of a romp. [More. . .]

The Age of Disruption: Technology and Madness in Computational Capitalism
John E. Charlton, Herman J. Michell, and Sharon L. Acoose (Eds)

(Hello Kari! - be safe!)
Half a century ago Adorno and Horkheimer argued, with great prescience, that our increasingly rationalized world was witnessing the emergence of a new kind of barbarism, thanks in part to the stultifying effects of the culture industries. What they could not foresee was that, with the digital revolution and the pervasive automation associated with it, the developments they had discerned would be greatly accentuated, giving rise to the loss of reason and to the loss of the reason for living. [More. . .]
