Nudge Fascinating read on behavioural science, how we are imperceptibly guided by others in making choices every single day.

Barbarian Days: A Surfing Life Extraordinary prose keeps even non-surfers engaged through intricate descriptions of wave after wave. It’s the reflective quality of the narrative however, and the long arc of the writer’s life told through the lens of a driving passion that make it a favourite.
