Recent Books — Least I Can Believe, Wicked + Divine, Super Forecasting

Cleaning up the bookshelf during the pandemic — a little eclectic.

  • What’s the Least I Can Believe and Still Be a Christian by Martin Thielen. I was raised Presbyterian but it didn’t really take. I still tho got a lot of value out of this book, particularly the first half which debunks some of the worst behaviours of some “Christians”. Recommended for believers and non-believers both.
  • The Wicked + The Divine by Gillen, McKelvie, Wilson, Cowles. I try a graphic novel every so often and this got good reviews. Didn’t really catch my attention, jumped in midstream to the characters and I didn’t ever bond to any of them.
  • Super Forecasting by Philip E. Tetlock and Dan Gardner. Great book about forecasting and leadership. The basic rules resonate across so many fields — be tangible; measure performance; iterate. Really nice work.
