  • Ask HN: Any interesting books you have read lately?
    I’ve had the pdf of “Almost Perfect” by Pete Peterson [0] on my cloud for a while and like reading it in bits and pieces and rereading it when I’m stuck somewhere without data.

  • IWTL How to improve my critical thinking skills
    Start with this book. I got mine on Amazon for my kindle. I bought copies for my grandchildren because I’d like it if they learned early how to spot this sort of thing. Get really comfortable doing research, and learn the difference between actual news and information sources and opinion sites. Just because you see something on the internet doesn’t make it true.

  • Finding fallacy articles and types of it
    If I'm being cynical, large portions of all the media Mentioned.
