Recent Books — Ahead of the Curve, The Star Fraction

* “Ahead of the Curve”:amazon by Philip Delves Broughton. An insider’s look at the Harvard Business School. The author tries to be balanced but the portrait is not flattering, a grotesquerie of ambition and ego and entitlement.
* “The Star Fraction”:amazon by Ken MacLeod. Ultra-Balkanized über-libertarian future England in the throes of revolution. A lot of smart ideas but didn’t think it really led anywhere.
