5 Books to Read to Expand your Knowledge (of Everything)

Knowledge is power, and if you are after a new source of knowledge then these books are a great place to start. Here are 5 books to read that will expand your knowledge of life.

#1 Artful Design by Ge Wang

Can technology be ‘ARTFUL’? Is a music programming language that lets your play the piano on your cell phone a feat of technology or an instrument? Or is it a toy? Stanford Professor Ge Wang explores these questions -- and his own interdisciplinary genius -- in his first book ARTFUL DESIGN: TECHNOLOGY IN SEARCH OF THE SUBLIME.

This is a book for anyone who has ever been  curious, excited, or concerned about how we shape technology, and how technology shapes us in turn. If you're looking for the next best book in design, one that dives into the crosshairs of how we can make better designs, and bring humanity and emotion into our technology -- this is it.

#2 Sex Education for Adults by John Wilder

The reason that couples go to a marriage counselor is that they want to learn how to stop fighting and make the pain stop. Guess what? Marriage counselors get ZERO training in conflict resolution skills. Couples then incorrectly infer that since the marriage counselor can't fix their marriage that it must not be fixable so we may as well get divorced. Once that happens, if mama has daughters, you would not believe how many women have confided to me that they were serially raped by mama's new boyfriend or stepdad. The best review on the book is by a licensed marriage counselor who credits the book for saving his marriage. The book is on the AASECT recommended reading list.
