Re: January 2018 NON-FICTION book! We need one!
Yes, these are both great books which pick up on the current cultural themes that have been most prominent in discussion here in threads on Art of No Deal and Impeach Trump. One of my key concerns at the moment is that you cannot defeat a failing paradigm until you have a better one to put in its place. Confused stopgaps just don't win hearts and minds. Both of these books provide acute investigations of failing paradigms, helping to shake the foundations. How well they get to the depths of the causes and solutions would be interesting to see.
