Since 2006, the group has been meeting every three months to discuss a work of non-fiction. The touchstone for the choice of book is that it should have a strong contemporary relevance – a book about issues in which everyone has a stake and about which everyone can have an opinion. Although the intention is to keep the group small, we would welcome one or two more members (we are currently five).
To give a better idea of the group, it might be helpful to list some of the books we have discussed in the last two or three years:
Daniel Kahneman, Thinking, Fast and Slow
Jules Evans, Philosophy for Life
Evan Davies, Made in Britain
Richard Holloway, The Human Search for Meaning
Ben Goldacre, Bad Science
Will Hutton, Them and Us
Ian Roberts, The Energy Glut
Matt Ridley, Genome
Matt Ridley, Nature Via Nature
Owen Jones, Chavs
Michael Sandel, Justice – What’s the Right Thing to Do?
Alain de Botton, The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work
Sam Harris, The End of Faith
Thaler and Sunstein, Nudge
