That one was fun, I read it a while back and like to reference it when talking about random carpola. I dug it a lot.
I have been slack on reading lately. I read "Where Men Win Glory: The Odyssey of Pat Tillman" when it came out. Interesting Krakauer story on the war and how it's used as a political tool.
"Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers" by Mary Roach is also a fun one if you are interested in medicine and how the study of the human body has progressed over the years. It's one of the last ones that I read that I really liked a lot. Don't think I'm a sicko till you read it, it's not what you think. truly facinating.
the rest aren't worth noting.
