When nearing the end of a great book it’s natural to want more books like the one that is about to come to an end. YourNextRead takes the book you’re reading and suggests follow up books to match it.
For each book you plug in you get eight suggestions. You can click on one of the suggestions to read more or, if you’re already familiar with the book, give it a thumbs up or thumbs down to refine the search. We plugged in Nurture Shock, a book we just finished reading–it’s a fantastic book that reads like a Freakonomics-style look into childhood–and were rewarded with some solid matches right off the bat like Mind in the Making and Outliers. All solid recommendations that fit the culture through the lens of statistical analysis and/or child-rearing theme found in Nurture Shock.
