The Clockwork Rocket by Greg Egan
" I can't help thinking I'm glad it was Tolkien who wrote Lord of the Rings and not you. "

The Luckiest Man in Changi by Arnold Crabb
"It's an interesting challenge to try and explain the charm of this unassuming little book, which has already won a surprising number of fans. Not was in change of producing it, and her description made it sound terribly dull: Arn Crabb, a postal w..." Read more of this review »

I'm afraid this will be going on my rapidly growing shelf 'Books you won't read before you die.' But who am I to be giving lectures, I hadn't heard of Hospital until I speculatively handed over $1 for this in an op shop.

And wow, what an investment th
The Creativity Code by Marcus du Sautoy
"Before I start in on the criticism (there will be criticism), let me say at once that if you're a geek like me you'll find this damn book unputdownable. It is stuffed full of excellent anecdotes about AI, computer science, mathematics and allied s..." Read more of this review »

La Vieillesse by Simone de Beauvoir
"I see reviewers here complaining that La vieillesse is boring, or disorganised, or outdated gerontology or whatever, but with all due respect I think this is missing the point. Simone de Beauvoir, now in her early sixties, is a distinguished autho..." Read more of this review »

David Foster Wallace
“The truth will set you free. But not until it is finished with you.”
David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest

Jeanette Winterson
“Everyone assumed it had to be some sort of biography, because if you are a woman and use yourself as a character, it has to be some sort of confessional, whereas if you’re a man, you’re actually doing some post-modern play on the novel, some critique on identity with lots of references to Foucault.”
Jeanette Winterson

G.R. Reader
“At your next book club meeting, picture me sitting quietly in the corner, taking notes on your preferences. Imagine the next day you get an email from me trying to sell you a new grill — or a book — or accessories for your Glock. That's the Amazon/Goodreads deal. It's appalling. But everywhere in the press, you'll read about the genius of Amazon."
(Michael Herrmann and the booksellers of Gibson's)”
G.R. Reader, Off-Topic: The Story of an Internet Revolt

Bertrand Russell
“Of all forms of caution, caution in love is perhaps the most fatal to true happiness.”
Bertrand Russell, The Conquest of Happiness

Richard M. Stallman
“With software there are only two possibilites: either the users control the programme or the programme controls the users. If the programme controls the users, and the developer controls the programme, then the programme is an instrument of unjust power.”
Richard M. Stallman
