Posted: Tue May 08, 2007 7:48 am Post subject: what books are you reading?
I am reading "humans" by Robert J. Sawyer (fiction) and "Inside the Third Reich" by Albert Speer.
Speer had 20 years to think about and write the book and he does take a suprising amount of responsibility for his actions.
What are you all reading these days?
I just finished 'Why the West Has Won', by Victor Davis Hanson. Thoroughly enjoyable, which unfortunately meant it only lasted me a week. Before that I read one by Carl Sagan, which I didn't find quite as enjoyable as when I read it in highschool. I'm thinking about picking up that Stephen Harper book by Paul Wells, or maybe another book from VDH... any recommendations?
John Stossell "Myths, Lies and Downright stupidity."
The book is really worth the read!! I couldn't put it down and read it all yesterday.
I do not agree with everything he says and you won't either, but you will see the need to talk about a great many things.
Also, he says something fascinating about his experience in writing consumer material: The conservatives may disagree, but will talk, (Stossell is Libertarian). The liberals refuse to talk, they just yell. According to Stossell, the difference is stark. I tend to agree with him.
