Here are a few books that I recently read or am currently reading: The Dictator’s Handbook: Why Bad Behavior is Almost Always Good Politics; Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things; Ghettoside: A True Story of Murder in America; and In the Land of Invented Languages: Adventures in Linguistic Creativity, Madness, and Genius.

Happy reading!
