A quick update for readers: I'm going to take the month of June off from posting Friday Links, returning in July.
In the meantime, Casual Kitchen will be running a burst of posts over the next two weeks: I'll be articulating this blog's core principles in a six-part series. Enjoy! And as always I welcome your thoughts.

Book Recommendation: Daniel Kahneman's Thinking, Fast and Slow. Remember back in April when I ran a post on great books to learn about fallacies and cognitive biases? Kahneman's book is twice as good as the best of those four books. Extremely readable, incredibly useful, and after reading it, you'll never look at the world in the same way again. Highly, highly recommended.
