What's new and coming up at Manuscript Works
I love an engaging nonfiction deep dive on a new topic as well! A few I've particularly enjoyed and that have impacted how I view the world:
- Ace by Angela Chen
- Why Fish Don't Exist by Lulu Miller
- An Immense World by Ed Yong
- Fat Talk by Virginia Sole-Smith (marketed to parents but very much for everyone)
- Flawless by Elise Hu
- Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer
- Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer
- The Country of the Blind by Andrew Leland
I just started Palo Alto: A History of California, Capitalism, and the World by Malcolm Harris. The introduction had some surprising elements of autobiography and sociology, and so far, his approach to history is a good fit for the audiobook format.
I've really enjoyed Yuval Noah Hariri's _Sapiens_, which is a broad tour of anthropology (cultural, with some biological and archaeological) exploring how humans came to dominate the world. Next in my queue is _How to Hide an Empire_, by Daniel Immerwahr.
