Dominic’s Suggested Reading List

Below is a copy of an email Dominic sent me after the podcast related to his reading recommendations…

“Here’s a short list of books I recommend. I also recommend joining your local library rather than buying loads more books people might never actually read. Having a timeline to give a book back helps me to get through it and you can renew them online also. I also recommend watching or listening to an interview with any of the authors mentioned first before picking up the book you might look at to see/hear what may spark an interest for you.
On the importance of community and reconnection
There is a blind celebration of narcissism, so stop putting so much energy into yourself, go do some voluntary work
On the need to disconnect from the attention economy – not dropping out, more to do with making better decisions on how to spend your time
The internet may be free but it’s running around your back and pickpocketting your time
On silence and doing nothing to get everything 
“Do less more thoroughly” – Harry Wolcott 
“When we inhabit a highly engineered environment, the natural world begins to seem bland and tasteless” – Matthew Crawford
