From Bacteria to Bach and Back - The Evolution of Minds by Daniel C. Dennett

Another book that will surely up my Jeopardy score. Time and again I was just struck by the breadth of knowledge Dennett possesses. It's my wish one day to have even a fraction of the knowledge.

American War by Omar El Akkad
"This is the year for dystopias – classics calling to be reread and new creations fairly seething with relevance. American War is certainly one of the latter, and it certainly seethes. It seethes with anger, with pessimism, with despair. It's the s..." Read more of this review »

Deep Thinking by Garry Kasparov

5-stars

This kicked total ass!

You always hear that Deep Blue beat Kasparov. Well, yeah, I guess. But there's a lot more to the story, and it doesn't make IBM look too good, IMO.

There are just certain types of reads I crave from time to time. And Mr. Shivers--what a CHEESY name, eh?--fit the bill perfect for getting my old-school horror fix. Cause to me, that's what it reads like--old Dean Koontz or John Saul or Robe
