The Bloggess She is a funny damned writer. In her own words, "I’ve been blogging about my strange little life for almost a decade. It’s mainly dark humor mixed with brutally honest periods of mental illness."
Oh my gosh - where do I begin? My ongoing crush/fight with my frenemy Tim Ferris. His books make me think. They also make fine door stops and/or weapons. They are written from Tim's perspective as a single-ish guy in his 40s. He is writing for single-ish guys in their 30s - 40s. You can see where the fight part comes in. Still, he has some great insights.

This book was fascinating. Why is monogamy so darned difficult? Why is the divorce rate so high? Why is our society so violent when our nearest DNA relatives, the bonobos, are peaceful? This book answers a lot of questions ... theoretically. It provides little advice on what to do about it given the culture, rules, polices, and mores we have been born into. Still, knowledge is power, right?
Tim interviews really fascinating people. It's heavily weighted to men in their forties who are technology entrepreneurs, but I've learned a lot ... sometime, by arguing (in my head) with them.
NOTE: The podcasts are longish and I don't have time for that. I listen to them at 1.5 speed and it works out just fine.
Yes, more Tim. This time, it's a show on Vimeo that has experts teaching Tim to also be an expert on things like Chess, Poker, and being an entrepreneur (honestly, I think he had that last one down to a science already.) I haven't actually seen all of these, but they're on my list.
