Books — Mar. 31

Current: The Murder Room by P.D. James. Set it aside for awhile to read Emotional Design.

Finished: Emotional Design: why we love (or hate) everyday things by Donald A. Norman. His first book The Psychology of Everyday Things was more eye-opening. Best parts were about designing robots with emotions so humans will feel more comfortable with them and “bystander apathy,” where mistakes happen because everyone in the group thinks someone else will catch or has caught the mistake.

Audio book
Current: Flashing before my eyes 50 years of headlines, deadlines & punchlines by Dick Schaap

Finished: To America: personal reflections of an historian by Stephen E. Ambrose.
