I had a love/hate relationship with O’Hare Airport in Chicago, where I grew up. On the one hand, even as a child I saw it as a gateway to adventure, the portal that you passed through if you wanted to get not only to other places in America, but also Paris! Tokyo! Bombay! (as it was known in my youth). On the other hand, O’Hare was a monster — busiest in the country (before Atlanta passed it up...

Why We Sleep by Matthew P. Walker
Rate this book
Clear rating
Very disappointing. Although Walker's credentials look impeccable, he consistently fails to provide references to the research that might support many of the startling assertions he makes about sleep (and he makes many). Occasionally, he does cite on ...more

Debt by David Graeber
Rate this book
Clear rating
This book is my current choice for what I'd take with me to the theoretical desert island. I found it challenging, provocative, and hard to digest. The minute I finished listening to it, I started it over again. This time I'm taking notes as I procee ...more

Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi
Rate this book
Clear rating
I loved the first two chapters, but lost interest the more I continued. Devoting each subsequent chapter to a member of the next generation felt contrived to me. Gyasi writes well enough, but the whole enterprise seemed more like a writing assignment ...more

I expected to love this and wound up feeling less ardent. It's an intriguing (if dreadful) world, well described, but I just failed to connect with it emotionally. Still, I appreciated the fact that it inspired a very lively discussion in my book gro ...more

The Undoing Project by Michael   Lewis
Rate this book
Clear rating
I've loved everything else I've ever read by Lewis, and I did like this one. But it felt less coherent, more scattered. Reading it was much more of a slog. I feel like I should go back and immediately re-read the description of Kahneman and Tversky's ...more

Dark Matter

Never thought someone would be able to turn quantum theory into a science-fi thriller, but Crouch certainly succeeded. I feel like I have a better grasp on what the multiverse is like (if it existed or exists) than I ever expected to have. For me thi ...more

Red Notice by Bill Browder

Banal uninspired writing and an egotistical boaster of a narrator -- a bad combination for me.
