Almost done with Nassim Taleb's ANTIFRAGILE: THINGS THAT GAIN FROM DISORDER by Nassim Taleb. https://www.amazon.com/Antifragile-Diso ... 8028862883

Will immediately move to his SKIN IN THE GAME: HIDDEN ASYMMETRIES IN DAILY LIFE. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/04252846 ... 695&sr=8-3

Sick! Huge Deadhead here. I haven’t read this yet but I’ve heard good things.
I'm a Deadhead too! I really enjoyed Deal. Phil's book Searching for the Sound is really good too.

Going to see Dead & Co. in Raleigh on Saturday... :guitar: :chili:

I can save you the effort. No, it does not. In fact, Christianity is a huge cause of OCD because many sufferers are constantly worried about their salvation and going to hell.

Sounds like they’re doing it wrong. I seem to remember reading about the freely given grace of God and salvation for all mankind...

I recently found a good deal for a copy of McGuane's "The Longest Silence" on line, and it arrived today. I'll probably start going through it later on tonight.

Standing in a River Waving a Stick by John Gierach I picked this up off a used book site this past Winter and took it to the cabin. Its fun so far, Gierach has an interesting perspective and a neat way of relating to his readers
