To kick things off, we'll start this year NPR TechNation host Dr. Moira Gunn, who'll be talking about The New Genomics and the Nature of being Human. Not content to suggest one, she recommended six!
- Dr. Fritjof Capra, "The Science of Leonardo"
- Paul Ehrlich, "The Dominant Animal"
- Dr. Marco Iacoboni, "Mirroring People: The Science of Empathy and How We Connect with Others"
- David Kessler, "The End of Overeating: Taking Control of the Insatiable American Appetite"
- James Lovelock, "The Vanishing Face of Gaia"
- Muhamad Yunus, "Creating a World without Poverty: Social Business and the Future of Capitalism"
