The Cult of Smart
How Our Broken Education System Perpetuates Social Injustice
Fredrik deBoer - 2020-08-04
Goodreads Rating
"The Cult of Smart" by Fredrik deBoer is a thought-provoking critique of our broken education system. DeBoer argues that our society has perpetuated an unjust class structure based on academic ability, and proposes top-to-bottom reform to create true equality of opportunity for all. This passionate manifesto challenges traditional ideas and demands a world that has a place for everyone, not just the academically talented.

The Room Where It Happened
A White House Memoir
John Bolton - 2020-06-23
Goodreads Rating
This White House memoir is a comprehensive and substantial account of the Trump Administration, written by former National Security Advisor, John Bolton. Bolton spent many of his 453 days in the room where it happened, and the facts speak for themselves. With almost daily access to the President, Bolton documents exactly how Trump's Ukraine-like transgressions existed across the full range of his foreign policy. With wit and wry humor, Bolton reveals a President addicted to chaos, who embraced enemies and spurned friends, and was deeply suspicious of his own government. This book is a must-read for those looking for a precise and honest rendering of Trump's days in and around the Oval Office.

I just read the Bolton book, and it makes me afraid for the country. Not that I wasn't before, but it sharpens the edge on that worry when you can see it laid out so plainly. Interestingly, it made me less afraid of Trump being influenced by Putin, but more worried overall.      source

@Andrew___Morris @jkamdjou Oh yes, that’s my favorite Vim book. I also have the latest as well. I also like @jovica’s stuff on it. And lately I’ve been watching a lot of Vim presentations on YouTube. But yeah, Drew Neil is great. Plus his Vimcasts in his Scottish accent are excellent.      source
