About the author

Matt is the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent is his blockbuster The Accidental Activist, which Amazon claims is by his wife Anne Green. So it goes. Currently, he is President of One Step for Animals; previously, he was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before Matt’s unfortunate encounter with activism, he was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). His hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. He lives in Tucson with Anne, along with no dogs, no cats, no guinea pigs, and only the occasional snake or scorpion.

Book Recommendations

In addition to New Scientist, Wired, and MIT's Technology Review, some books Ellen, Anne, and I are reading this summer include:

The Hidden Brain

Predictably Irrational  (scroll down)

Naked Statistics (Prepping Ellen for her stats class this fall; reviewing my stats from grad school)

All highly recommended, along with the granddaddy of human behavior / decision-making's book: Daniel Kahneman's Thinking Fast and Slow, discussed here in context by our friends at Less Wrong.
