October’s Book: The Gift of Fear

Learning to listen to yourself is key.The gift of fear…Wonder how that applies to Obamacare?  ‘Cause we’re terrified.Since it is October, the PD staff knew that our Book Club pick had to be The Gift of Fear by Gavin de Becker, which focuses on the social queues that trump intuition--- often with deadly consequences.

September’s Book: Weapons of Mass Instruction

Prison. Perhaps the best $15 you've ever spent.While PD’s danced around the subject of the American education system before, for the month of September we’ve decided to go deeper. Much deeper.

If you, like a chunk of our staff, happen to be a product of that said system, grab a pack of smokes, because you are about to find out just how much you’ve been fucked.

August’s Book: Escape From Camp 14

As much a part of reality today, as yesterday.An original drawing from Shin Dong-hyuk.Last month’s Ray Kurzweil pick might have been on the heavy side, but Escape From Camp 14 can be downed in an afternoon and is guaranteed to change your outlook on life.

July’s Book: The Singularity Is Near

The genius.The author outlines the concepts behind his take on the future.This month’s Book Club read is a little on the hefty side (only 670 pages) and is a major mind bender to be considered a fun beach read. Well, that’s not entirely true. The Singularity Is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology by Ray Kurzweil could be considered a fun beach read---- for Sheldon Cooper.

This book is intense, and even in the audiobook version it could result in serious sun burns.

June’s Book: Nudge

(And the crowd goes wild, or collectively groans.) Ladies and gentlemen, we give you, Nudge.
