Two book recommendations

I've been reading about happiness. About a choice of life. Specifically "The History of Rasselas: Prince of Abissinia," by Samuel Johnson.

It's a good book. Short. Satire. Came out about the same time as Candide.

I've also been reading "Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion." It's well done. An easy read with insight into human nature, and the ways our natures can be manipulated for better or worse.
