If you like history, you'll eat this book up. Here is a book on the theory of history that actually adds to our knowledge of history — not this or that historical event, but a theory of how history works. Roughly, societies fail or succeed based on t...more

Why Does the World Exist? by Jim Holt

This is a good and philosophically literate review of attempts to come to grips with the very existence of the world. It's a philosophical travelogue -- the author goes around interviewing famous people who might have some insight into the question....more

This book is not going to be out until June, so I feel very lucky for having had an opportunity to read it so early. I hope it will get enough promo buzz over the next few months to reach tons of readers, because Blood R... " Read more of this review »
