Category: Book Notes

These are notes written for the Aptos Men’s Book Club and others about books I have read.

The Maniac
by Benjamín Labatut

vonNeumann is best remembered for inventing the computer, or at least the basis for modern computers.

American Prometheus
by Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin

The book is a bit of a slog to get through, but it is thorough, very thorough.

Fire Weather
by John Vaillant

On the other hand, “Fire Weather” is quite the enjoyable read, although it is more than a tad scary at points.

by Len Deighton

And the wrong town was bombed.

Demon Copperhead
by Barbara Kingsolver

Along the way, Demon Copperhead develops, among other problems, a serious drug problem.
