I read this book thinking it was a novel. It wasn't until I was finished, and read the Afterword that it was revealed that it was a true story. Wow! This made it even sadder, and made me even madder, especially at governments that simply don't care a ...more

I have been looking for a book about the High Line in NYC for some time. I saw this book in an airport bookstore and bought it. It is a great book about the High Line. Not only does it go into the politics of creating it, but digs deeply into the det ...more

The Transformation Of Ireland 1900 - 2000 by Diarmaid Ferriter
Rate this book
Clear rating
Quite frankly, I wouldn't bother reading this one. The author presumes you know Irish history, so really, only an Irishman would understand it. The only reason I gave it a 2-star rating was that I learned a few tidbits of history here and there.

A Patriot's History of the United States by Larry Schweikart
Rate this book

Simply masterful! If you only read 1 book on the United States, make it this one! It is breathtaking in it's scope, yet full of details and "hinges" of history that make it a beautiful read.

Golden by Marcus Thompson

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Since I love basketball, and I love Steph Curry, reading this book was a no-brainer. However, I did learn a lot about both! Steph has proven himself and deserves the accolades he gets. His work ethic is unbelievable!

This is book #2 in the trilogy by N.K. Jemison. For me, the jury is still out on whether I like this trilogy or love it. I'm waiting on the third one to decide.

The Obstacle Is the Way by Ryan Holiday
Rate this book
Clear rating
Ryan knows how to write a book! He keeps the chapters short so you can hum through the book, and it is chocked full of good advice. He relies heavily on the stoics and their literature. It is through Ryan that I have been introduced to the stoics and ...more
