I just finished reading Create Your Own Economy by Tyler Cowen. The overall theme of the book revolves around Autistic thinking and framing effects. The author posits that autistic thinking has benefits that we all can learn from. The discussion of framing effects is less coherently spread throughout the book but suggests that people can decide what is important and improve their lives by choosing how to look at the world.
While I found the Autistic meme to be stretched, there are many valuable insights into Internet communications, economics and psychology. There is also a strong defence of modern bite sized culture which is really worth thinking about if you pine for the glory days of traditional culture.
