Books We Currently Recommend

  • Godless - Ann Coulter - I have always been entertained by Ann. Some love her and many hate her. I tend to appreciate her openess and minimally, she will get you thinking. I know she overloads her Nexus searches, but as a whole, she tells a side of the story you can't get from biased media today.
  • The Know It All - A.J. Jacobs - This is an excellent book. Not only is it loaded with page after page of laugh out loud humor, you actually get to incresae your IQ. Basically, this book is about the trials and tribulations of the author's attempt to read the Encyclopedia Britanica from A to Z. I can't count the number of times I have burst out laughing while reading this book (causing numerous glares from my wife). Get it, Read it, You'll love it.

Audio Books We Currently Recommend

  • Red Rabbit - Tom Clancy - This took me a loooooong time to get through, but I made it. I had no idea what it was about when I started listening to it and based on the events that are transpiring around the world, it became a little eerie. It is basically about a plot by the Russians to kill the Pope (by using a Turkish assassin). The part that makes your neck hairs stand on end is the reference to spy poisoning by radiation - does that sound familiar to anyone?

Books We Recommend Avoiding

  • Snow Crash - Neal Stephenson - I had high hopes for this book. I read the reviews and was intrigued by the geek quotient coupled with a sword carrying pizza delivery hero. Unfortunately, I may have over-hyped myself which may have skewed my perception of this book. I enjoyed some of the technical aspecs (metaverse etc.) and some of the battle depictions were engaging, but over all I thought the book lacked a good flow. I pushed my way through on a slight upswing near the end of the book as our heroes were tracking towards the final confrontation .... and then bang it was over, story done thanks for spending your time, see ya...... It almost felt like he had had enough and just decided to free himself of it.
