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

Golden Hill
by Francis Spufford

The remaining characters appear somewhat randomly and seem to have little purpose.

The Chip
by T. R. Reid

Empire of Pain
by Patrick Radden Keefe

Find out exactly how Sackler avarice bred worldwide opioid pain and Sackler notoriety, and how little could be done about it.

How Democracies Die
by Steven Levitsky & Daniel Ziblatt

As the book warns, it could get worse.

Peril
