    Interestingly, following Heather Yaxley's recommendation, the next non-fiction book I plan to read is:

    Thinking, Fast and Slow, by Daniel Kahneman

    I have already Read Around (in this order):

    The Virtual Self: How Our Digital Lives Are Altering the World Around Us, by Nora Young

    The Information Diet: A Case for Conscious Consumption, by Clay A. Johnson (which was the inspiration for my recent column, Nutrition Byte: Conscious PR Choices on the Social Media Plate)

    Steve Jobs, by Walter Isaacson

    Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking, by Susan Cain (which plays a huge role in my Boring Byte: Polishing Dull Stereotypes Into Social PR Gold, which publishes the last week of July)

    Oh. And I'm more than 3/4 of the way through Hilary Mantel's Bring Up the Bodies (her followup or #2 in the now trilogy to the Man Booker-winning Wolf Hall. Heather and I are both convinced that Thomas Cromwell was very public relations savvy. Not that it prevented him from losing his head, literally, in the end.)
