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

The Bomber Mafia
by Malcolm Gladwell

Malcom Gladwell approaches the competing bombing strategies used in WWII with a combination of historical fact, analysis, and irony.

The Splendid and the Vile
by Erik Larson

At 500 pages (not including footnotes and attributions) it is not a short read, but it is a pleasant one.

Ordinary Grace
by William Kent Krueger

Along the way, both boys learn painful lessons of adolescence.

We Begin at the End
by Chris Whitaker

Through it all the quality of the writing and structure of the storytelling make for a book you just cannot put down.

Talking to the Dead
by Harry Bingham

Fi’s adventures, though occasionally not at all credible, are fun to read about.
