There is some good information in it and some that, well, is a bit humorous. :)

If you wan't to believe it, this is the secret. ;)


That and holding off the right leg from straightening in the backswing by setting the right foot up perpendicular to the target line. :D

I'll just say, it was fun to read.

Just finished Insanely Simple: The Obsession That Drives Apple's Success by Ken Segall.

I don't think he's the greatest writer, but it was pretty interesting.

Lot of repeats of things. But a quick read.

Still in the middle of The Complete Sherlock Holmes.  But, I am traveling for work this week and will start A Prayer for Owen Meany.  I like to read on flights and this is a long one (Brazil).

I am about halfway through "Lord of Chaos" in the Wheel of Time series.  I again have to thank @Ernest Jones for recommending this series.  These books rank up with the best books I have ever read.

 

While I do feel that Robert Jordan (the author) can ramble on a bit at times, his plot building is excellent.  It is also unpredictable.  So many good sub-plots going on at once keeps it very interesting.

Finished Cormac McCarthy's Blood Meridian not too long ago.  So freaking good.  Definitely dark and gory at parts, but beautiful... if you know anything about McCarthy's writing style (he also wrote The Counselor, No Country For Old Men, All The Pretty Horses, and others), you won't be surprised.  It's set in the Old West about an outlaw "Kid" that gets recruited to be a scalp hunter for the army, then turns outlaw again, there's a maniacal preacher... crazy stuff.  can't explain it, but definitely check it out.  It's not the easiest read, but if you like a great story and great writing, you must check it out!

Compelling, interesting read. A lot of information about how the brain works and how our immune system can sometimes turn on us. I read it in two evenings.

Just read The Most Dangerous Animal of All, a new release by a guy who claims that his biological father was the Zodiac Killer. It was a fairly quick and interesting read, though the actual evidence was light (which the author somewhat puts on an alleged coverup by the San Fran PD). He calls the book a memoir in the intro, which was certainly true (probably more so than I would have liked). It was a worthwhile read nonetheless.

If anybody like historical fiction check out The Eagle Series by Simon Scarrow.  Its 12 books (Im on 10) and covers a lot of interesting parts of Roman history.  They are all very easy to read and not all that long.

Just downloaded *1984* - i think the last time i read it, I was too young to fully comprehend.

 

This will be the first non-sports book I have read in over 25 years. (the last one being Helter Skelter)

In the process of reading "For Whom the Bell Tolls" by Hemingway. With college and work it's hard to find time for pleasure read. 

 

Also, infrequently, working my way through Whitman's "Leaves of Grass".

GLIDING o'er all, through all,
Through Nature, Time, and Space,
As a ship on the waters advancing,
The voyage of the soul--not life alone,
Death, many deaths I'll sing.
