    What are your favorite nonfiction books about science or the social sciences?

    I'm particularly interested in readable, modern books about cosmology, quantum physics, public policy, gender, development, economics, and philosophy.

    I'm currently reading Steven Pinker’s Enlightenment Now. I’ve enjoyed it so far.

    Recently, I read Tyler Cowen’s Stubborn Attachments and Abhijit Banerjee and Esther Duflo’s Poor Economics.

    Here are my most recent reads in the categories you mentioned:

    • "Farewell to Reality: How Fairy Tale Physics Betrays the Search for Scientific Truth"  by Jim Baggott
    • "Melting Pot or Civil War?: A Son of Immigrants Makes the Case Against Open Borders"  by Reihan Salam
    • "Republican Like Me: How I Left the Liberal Bubble and Learned to Love the Right"  by Ken Stern
    • "The Once and Future Worker: A Vision for the Renewal of Work in America"  by Oren Cass
    • "The War on Normal People"  by Andrew Yang

    I highly recommend all of them.
