The Reality Bubble: Blind Spots, Hidden Truths, and the Dangerous Illusions That Shape Our World

Book review by Deane Barker

I didn’t get this book for about the first third of it. Then I figured out what it was all about –

It’s about all the hidden things in life that we ignore from day to day. Where our food comes from, where are energy comes from, where our garbage grows, what’s in outer space, etc. We live in a “reality bubble,” which is a false interpretation of reality because we can ignore so much stuff.

The book has a decidedly liberal tilt. The author is clearly pushing an agenda (I’m guessing she’s a vegan). But it’s still quite good. Very Gladwell-esqe – lots of random stories and narrative branches.
