Abundance: The Future Is Better Than You Think by Peter H. Diamandis

Peter Diamandis and his co-author Steven Kotler make the case that things are better now than they have ever been, and what is more, we are on the verge of eliminating the scarcity economy that has ruled our existence. We are rapidly approaching abundance.

Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing Without Organizations by Clay Shirky

Here Comes Everybody is a fun easy read that uses stories to show you how the rapid, revolutionary spread of new forms of social interaction supported by technology and the Internet are changing the way humans form groups and how we exist within those groups.

The Man Who Lied to His Laptop: What Machines Teach Us About Human Relationships by Clifford Nass

Although this book is based on technology, what it really can teach us is how to better understand ourselves and how to interact effectively with the rest of humanity. The man who lied to his laptop did so in order not to hurt its feelings. You probably think that is foolish but after you read this book you will realize that we all do it, that is what makes us human.
