David Baddiel - 2021-04-20

This compelling book tackles an often-overlooked topic: the history of anti-Semitism. Comedian and writer David Baddiel argues that those fighting against racism, homophobia, transphobia, and disablism have missed an important subject. In this thought-provoking read, Baddiel presents his case with a unique combination of jokes, personal experience, and reasoning. Discover why, in a world focused on minority rights, Jews don’t count as a real minority.

Such an interesting book by @Baddiel called 'Jews Don't Count. ' So good I've asked him to come on the show and talk about the 'hierarchy of racism' and not the "Jewish space laser". @bbc5live      source

Black Box Thinking
The Surprising Truth About Success
Matthew Syed - 2015-11-03
Goodreads Rating
"Black Box Thinking" explores the power of a positive attitude towards failure and its impact on success in any field. Using examples from the airline industry, the book shows how failure is taken seriously to ensure mistakes are not repeated. This approach can be applied to our personal and professional lives. Syed offers a radical idea that the most important determinant of success is an acknowledgment of failure and willingness to engage with it. With gripping stories and sharp-edged science, Syed explains the intimate relationship between failure and success and how to break free from failures to unleash our potential.
