Excellent article, Matt! I write about nonfiction books as you know but you have definitely given me a few pointers to append to my list. Thanks for that! I admire how you'e juxtaposed so many perspectives into a single, coherent, lucid blogpost! Well done and thanks for inspiring me to read more and read wide!
My own recommendations for you focus on a common theme: the human condition. I'd really appreciate your feedback on my recommendations!
My list: The Righteous Mind, Factfulness, Drive, Human Compatible, Rebel Ideas and This Is Going To Hurt.
