I am a voracious reader and every week I come across either a book, online piece or website I want to share with others. I’ve decided to curate these gems and highlight them on Friday. I hope you find these faves as insightful as I do.

  • Is self-help a kind of magical thinking and does it work? Rami Gabriel answers this question in his piece, “The Self-Help Game.
  • “Kids are not machines, and need time to relax, to goof off, to have meaningless, exploratory fun with friends.”  In The Economist, Ryan Avent explores the current state of  “High-Pressure Parenting.”
