I've decided to do a series of posts giving short book recommendations. Since I usually read far more interesting stuff than I could ever possibly write about in a substantive way, I figure a series of short posts just recommending things I've read might be worthwhile. Also, each post will give readers an opportunity to recommend things that they've read too.
I won't give any ratings or substantive criticisms of the books I recommend here, I'll just provide a couple of reasons for thinking the book is worthwhile. Also, while my main focus will be on philosophy books, I won't limit myself to those.
