Just finished this one by @juliagalef. Highly recommended. It's not easy to become (more of) a scout, but it's hard not to be inspired by this book.      source

We know a lot about how flawed human reasoning is, but surprisingly little about how to repair it in our daily lives. Thankfully, an expert on applied rationality is here to change that. With insights that are both sharp and actionable, this book will teach you to think more clearly, see yourself more accurately, and be wrong a little less often.      source

Note @davidshor has talked a lot about how education polarisation has realigned things in the States. Similar to here. And @juliagalef's "Scout Mindset" is an excellent book.      source
