    Excellent! You'll fly through it. It's easy to read and very exciting! I've just started 'A Clash of Kings', the second installment! Now it gets really interesting reading ahead of the TV show!

    Going back and rereading some older stuff.

    "The Illustrated Man" by Bradbury reminds me why his stories have always been special to me.

    As a kid growing up in the late 50's and early 60's, I couldn't get enough stories about space travel,
    but he took just a little bit different slant on the subject.

    So many books, so little time...

    "COLLAPSE: How Societies choose to fail or succeed" by Jared Diamond
    Per a suggestion from 3alarmer from a P&R thread



    .....and "A Short History of Nearly Everything" by Bill Bryson
    Per a suggestion from a friend who is just a bit more of an average 'high-functioning' lunatic than me.....


    Both are excellent!

    Maxwell's 'The Folded Leaf'. A great book from an American writer under-appreciated alongside the likes of Updike, Salinger, Kerouac etc...

    Just finished "The diving bell and the Butterfly" - a memoir written by a French journalist who had a stroke and woke up with "locked in syndrome". He could only move his left eyelid and wrote the memoir by blinking to indicate which letter he wanted to an assistant who then wrote it down.
    Amazingly upbeat given the guy went from being healthy and successful to paralysed except for the use of one eye.

    It Worked for Me: In Life and Leadership by Colin Powell
    Powell actually writes in a very engaging manner, and his "Thirteen Rules" should replace the "Golden Rule" as a guide for interacting with your fellow man.



    We Can All Do Better by Bill Bradley
    Again, Bradley writes in a very engaging manner, and his take on the role of money in politics, and what we need to do to restore American policies and to return to a position as a world leader are spot on.

    Just started Game of Thrones this weekend. Pretty good so far although he throws a ton of characters at you right from the get go. Makes it a little tough to keep them all straight initially.

    " The Information: A History, A Theory, A Flood " by James Gleick.

    A little bit of everything on the subject. Enjoy reading about those who think outside the "Box"...

    This lead to the purchase of " The Idea Factory: Bell Labs and the Great Age of American Innovation " by Jon Gertner
