10 Weekend Reads

Good Saturday morning. We once again have (unusually) glorious weather here in the NorthEast, so don’t expect me to be any where near a computer all day. No worries, though — here is my list of the longer form reading I have collected this week to keep you occupied:

• The Man Who Escaped Microsoft and Took a Whole Company With Him (Wired)
• Science of Storytelling: Why Narratives Are the Most Powerful Way to Activate Our Brains (Lifehacker)
Malcolm Gladwell: The Gift of Doubt (New Yorker)
• China’s Great Uprooting: Moving 250 Million Into Cities (NYT)
• Why The Pie Chart is the Worst Chart In The World (Business Insider)
• A Foolproof Approach to Policy For Both Fiscalists + Monetarists (Macro & Other Market Musings)
• What Paintbrush Makers Know About How to Beat China (NYT) see also Portrait of the Artist as a Caveman (New Atlantis)
• Silent War (Vanity Fair) see also The Secret War (Wired)
• The Problem With Psychiatry, the ‘DSM,’ and the Way We Study Mental Illness (Pacific Standard)
