Welcome back! This week we’re kicking off the start of summer talking about The Hot Hand: The Mystery and Science of Streaks by Ben Cohen. Right now we’re up to the first two chapters, and in 2 weeks we’ll reconvene and discuss chapters 3-5. We’ll be doing a vote on the next books soon, email me suggestions you’ve got.
Some things to kick us off:
When’s a time you felt like you had a streak going? What’s your hot hand story?
The first chapter talks about the science of streaks in the context of basketball, and how they can have real psychological effects on the person on a hot run. Have you ever seen someone get hot?
Did you expect to learn an incredible amount of cool detail about Shakespeare? Have you ever read three Shakespeare plays in the course of two months, let alone wrote three?
Any expectations for the book?
