A quick look at the NYT bestselling list for non-fiction paperbacks taught me a lot about the contemporary obsessions of the average American:
Number 1: ‘Heaven is for real’, a boy’s encounter with Jesus and the angels.
Number 2: ‘Inside of a dog’, the world from a dog’s point of view.
Number 3: ‘The big short’, about the people who saw the real estate crash coming and made billions.
God, dogs and money it is.
