Raised in a secular family but interested in the relevance of faith in our modern world, A.J. Jacobs decides to attempt to obey the Bible as literally as possible for one full year.

Uncontrolled - the surprising payoff of trial-and-error for business, politics, and society

How do we know which social and economic policies work, which should be continued, and which should be changed?
