    Sapiens - A Brief History of Humankind, by Yuval Noah Harari.

    It's really easy to follow and engaging, and it goes back to the beginning, explaining how we evolved as a society. You should really check it out guys, it will open a lot of new perspectives.

    Recently read: A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles

    Haven't decided what to read next, maybe the back of a cereal box or a traffic sign...both on the same day if I'm feeling industrious.

    Last: Pratchett "Night Watch"
    Current: Hancock "America Before" (total pseudoscience, but I find him entertaining)
    Next: pre order "Fall" by Stephenson. We'll see if he can redeem himself after the SEVENEVES mess.

    "The Stench of Honolulu"

    I just gave up on Frank Herbert's "The Dosadi Experiment." I've tried this book maybe once a decade in my life and I never get far.....but I'm a big fan of Dune and I want to understand what Herbert was doing with this one.

    I'm a WWII buff. Just finished "The Flying Tigers" by Sam Kleiner.
    Really interesting to see how that squadron came to be, and all of the antics.
    Just loved it.
