How Positive Thinking Is Undermining America
Barbara Ehrenreich - 2009-10-13
Рейтинг Goodreads
Explore the strange career of America's obsession with positivity and optimism with this thought-provoking and myth-busting book. Author Barbara Ehrenreich traces the origins of our sunny outlook and how it has become deeply ingrained in our culture, from evangelical mega-churches to the business community. She exposes the downside of positive thinking, including personal self-blame and a national era of irrational optimism resulting in disaster. This book is a call for existential clarity and courage in a world that often values positivity over reality.

From Troy to Vietnam
Barbara W. Tuchman - 1993-12-06 (впервые опубликовано в 1984)
Рейтинг Goodreads
Explore the fascinating and tragic history of governments making avoidable mistakes with Barbara Tuchman's The March of Folly. Pulitzer Prize-winning Tuchman discusses the pursuit of policies contrary to a government's interests, despite the availability of other, better options. She delves into four instances throughout history, including the Trojan War and America's involvement in Vietnam, to illustrate the impact of folly. Through vivid storytelling, readers experience the people, places, and events of these turning points in history.

"Guns of August" by Barbara Tuchman on the first month of WWI is another essential book, along with her other classic "March of Folly." Both are excellent to help to fight the temptation of looking at world history teleologically.      источник
