I liked this book a little more than my wife did. Yeah, it was his first book but I think his delivery comes across better in voice than it does in print. The chapter about Mitch Hedberg was short, but probably my favorite. He pays a wonderful tribut ...more

This is the third book I have read by Woodward and/or Bernstein and it did not disappoint. Very detailed investigation and reportage really inside stuff about the events leading up to Nixon's resignation shortly into his second term. Even though it's ...more

Auschwitz by Miklós Nyiszli

I am a little over halfway through this book. It's pretty grim, but expected given the subject. The author was a Jewish physician detailed to work under Dr. Mengele's direction in the Auschwitz concentration camp. He is an eyewitness to the horrors o ...more

Run! 26.2 Stories of Blisters and Bliss by Dean Karnazes

Second of Dean Karnazes' books that I have read. It's a fast read but he's a great storyteller even if you are not a runner. Amazing guy.

A Million Little Pieces by James Frey

Yes it's fake, but it's enjoyable nonetheless. If I had read it as nonfiction first, I'd have been disturbed to learn of Frey's frequent and hefty 'embellishment' but knowing it was not real going in made it closer to just a gritty drug novel.

Theodore Roosevelt
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt

Richard Feynman
“Study hard what interests you the most in the most undisciplined, irreverent and original manner possible.”
Richard Feynman

Ronald Reagan
“It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession. I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first.”
