SKYLIT: Cass Sunstein, ”SLUDGE”

Posted in skylight books, los angeles, book stores, books, nonfiction, self-help, skylit by skylightbooks on October 9th, 2021
We've all had to fight our way through administrative sludge--filling out complicated online forms, mailing in paperwork, standing in line at the motor vehicle registry. This kind of red tape is a nuisance, but, as Cass Sunstein shows in Sludge, it can also also impair health, reduce growth, entrench poverty, and exacerbate inequality. Confronted by sludge, people just give up--and lose a promised outcome: a visa, a job, a permit, an educational opportunity, necessary medical help. In this lively and entertaining look at the terribleness of sludge, Sunstein explains what we can do to reduce it.

SKYLIT: Jaya Saxena, “CRYSTAL CLEAR” w/ Helena Fitzgerald

Highly prized for their beauty, crystals can take the shape of jewelry, household objects, and an array of self-care products. But it’s the ideas they stand for that draw people to their raw forms. Like astrology, tarot, and modern witchcraft, crystals help practitioners understand themselves and the wider world around them. 
 
Crystal Clear author Jaya Saxena is in conversation with Helena Fitzgerald.
