    The above was unbelievably good. Best thing I have read in a very long time from either a subject matter or a style standpoint. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED... Opted to wait a bit to cue up book #2, Theodore Rex.

    Next up All the Shah's Men by Steven Kinzer, an account of the MI6/ CIA overthrow of Iran's government and the installation of the Shah in 1953. A couple of early notes:
    1. Kinzer is not half the writer Morris is; and
    2. Even this switch couldn't get me away from Roosevelt... the principal CIA operative was Kermit Roosevelt, Teddy's grandson.
    More later,

    If any of you have teenagers. I'd recommend a book that I am currently reading with and for my 13 year old. Sophie's World: A Novel about the History of Philosophy. Jostein Gaarder (A best seller in Norway in the 90s that went on to be translated into many other languages, including English).

    Written as a combination of mini-philosophy lessons backgrounded by a mystery in the life of the young girl who is taking the correspondence course. Very educational and stimulating for the precocious mind!

    I been working through How God Changes Your Brain: Breakthrough Findings from a Leading Neuroscientist and a couple books by Frans de Waal, especially interesting is Primates and Philosophers: How Morality Evolved. I don't agree with a lot of what he says, but it is really provocative.

    I thought so. But I like Haldemans work. It is interesting to compare his early short stories to his later novels.

    Explains where some of your game contributions have originated...

    Finished All the Shah's Men by Steven Kinzer... ehhhh... not recommended.

    Next up The great unraveling : losing our way in the new century by Paul Krugman. Essentially a collection of his columns from the late 90's thru early 2003 organized into chapters by theme. Bit over 1/4 of the way thru... Good, fast read so far.
    More later,

    Didn't realize you were into fiction Tony... :tongue:

    I set aside Shakey for a while... wasn't that I couldn't get into it, but I kept thinking 'bout Morris' Roosevelt trilogy so I checked out the 2nd book, Theodore Rex.

    BTW, Teddie's book was a decent read... stuck me as self-aggrandising at times, but about half those times I came away thinking, "nope, that was warranted."

In honor of Ronald Reagan's 100th birthday, I re-read his book, "An American Life". It was a very good read. Currently, I am working my way through "Broke" by Glenn Beck. It is another good read.
