On Tuesday, June 18, we will discuss “I Contain Multitudes: The Microbes Within Us and a Grander View of Life,” by Ed Yong. Every animal, or plant, is home to thousands of different bacteria and other microbes. Recent discoveries in this realm prompt us to look at life as the interconnected, interdependent web of all existence of our principle seven. 

On Tuesday, July 16, we will discuss “The Fifth Risk,” by Michael Lewis. The fifth risk is the one we least imagine. For Lewis it is “project management.” In the Trump administration, it is what can happen in various Cabinet Departments, when they are headed by people unfamiliar and/or uninterested in their inner workings. The reader gets a flavor for hidden ways by which government funding helps some of the people who are most skeptical of big government.
