November’s Book: How Adam Smith Can Change Your Life

The Wealth of Nations.You might also know Russ Roberts from the Keynes vs. Hayek rap battle on Youtube. Figuring this month would be a hard one given the results guaranteed of a race between Tyranny and Tyranny are slated to be revealed part way through, our staff found selecting our November PD Book Club Pick to be rather hard--- just like last month when we decided to go with, The Big Short.

October’s Book: The Big Short

September’s Book: 13 Hours

August’s Book: Never Broken

Spirit.From being raised in Alaska and Hawaii to being homeless in San Diego to moving to Texas, Jewel has many a story to tell. In the past, PD hasn’t been the best at recommending beach reads. Yes, yes---we’ll never live down recommending Ray Kurzweil’s The Singularity Is Near, but this month we stand by our pick.

Never Broken: Songs Are Only Half the Story by Jewel Kilcher is part memoir, part travel guide, part action drama, part philosophy, part instruction manual, part comedy, part self-help, part sci-fi, part Economics 101, part art appreciation and a 100% embracement of freedom.

July’s Book: The 5,000 Year Leap
