This book was a wildly entertaining look at how the Danish live and what may be the reasons behind them being the happiest people on earth. The author goes through roughly an aspect of culture each month and the reader watches with wonder at the mis- ...more

On Combat by Dave Grossman
Rate this book
Clear rating
I do not feel as if the tome that is On Combat is intended for the lay reader. Were I a police officer, emergency responder called on to use force, soldier, peacekeeper, or anyone else who held the ability to use state-sponsored violence I'd have a m ...more

Deviate offers a lot of tantalizing references to a premise on which I don't believe the book delivers, but I'll give it points for trying. The book heavily emphasizes that the limitations of our perceptions and our habits of thought create patterns ...more

Bel Canto by Ann Patchett
