This entertaining, brief talk gives a flavour of the book.
Must read his book about our feted but ludicrous social elites, with a great title: Bobos in Paradise. I think he writes mainly about America so let’s pretend it isn’t the same here.
For now, carrying on with The Social Animal, cracking read. Have Kahneman‘s Thinking, Fast and Slow to come next.
Slight backlog of books on my shelf, it must be said.
