What book are you currently reading?

Recommended Posts

For the last week I've been reading the new novel written by Jeff Shaara about the WWII Allied campaigns in North Africa and Sicily. It's entitled The Rising Tide. Like all his novels the events and characters are real, the history is accurate, but the conversations and thoughts of the main characters are surmised. I love Shaara's books and have read them all.

Reading 'White Line Fever' the autobiography of Lemmy from Motorhead... Pretty entertaining read so far.

The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable by Nassim Taleb

 

...if you haven't read Taleb's first book, get it...Fooled by Randomness: The Hidden Role of Chance in Life and the Markets...it's a great book and should probably be read first to give you a context for some of his thinking; The Black Swan is more dense than FbR. Make sure you get the second edition of FbR...

Just finished Angels and Demons, the prequel to DaVinci Code. Dan Brown. Pure brain candy for me... an escape.

 

The Jeff Shaara novels sound interesting, can you recommend a good one to me, Doc?

Almost done, so the next in the series is on tap:

This author is pure genius in his mastery of language, imagery, and intrigue.

Re-reading John Sanford, the Prey series, from the first .... 'bout in the middle of the series.

 

Hopefully by the time I am finished James Clemons will have finished the 3rd in his Godslayer series.

:D Angels and Demons is my all time favorite. A real page turner. I liked far better than the DaVinci Code.

Currently reading State of Fear. Fiction about evironmentalists and global warming. This book obviously has an agenda. It is a good book as well. Not sure if I agree with the agenda though.

That's because it is better. The whole DaVinci Code thing still makes me go :D.

I just finished "Sacred Cows Make the Best Hamburger" by Robert Kriegel and David Brandt. It's a book about business practices and how to scrap those that are holding you back.

 

I just picked up "The Gunslinger" by Stephen King. I've never finished the whole Dark Tower series so I thought this might be a good time to start.
