Book Review: Weapons of Math Destruction by Cathy O'Neil

Today’s review is of the book Weapons of Math Destruction by Cathy O'Neil.

First of all, phenomenal title. Absolutely love that it made me laugh, and also made me super super intrigued, but the book itself is really fascinating.

So from an academic perspective, from a banking perspective, and then from a business perspective, she really digs into the rise of the algorithm, and what this means, and how both our government and our businesses are relying on this in a way that oftentimes does not serve the public good.

Book Review: 10% Happier by Dan Harris

10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Actually Works--A True Story is the #1 New York Times bestseller by Dan Harris, co-anchor of ABC’s “Nightline”, the weekend version of “Good Morning America”.

After having a panic attack on live television, Dan knew he couldn’t continue in such a way, and that he needed to make some changes. The journey that followed resulted in a book that’s helped thousands of people rewire their brains. I recently listened to the audiobook of 10% Happier, and wanted to share my thoughts about what makes it a must-read.
