Books

Here are some of my favorite books!

*I disagree with the philosophical conclusion (antinatalism) that Perry comes to in "Every Cradle is a Grave," but it is an important read if you want to understand just how negative a human life can be in the year 2019 and prior. I believe we can make the future much better for all sentient beings.
