My Life Among The Serial Killers -- Helen Morrison with Harold Goldberg

An eye-catching title, wouldn't you agree? And it did its job; it caught mine. As for the book itself, it reads like somewhat like a novel, somewhat like a text. But it reads very well, and is riveting. Morrison has her own ideas about what makes or doesn't make a serial killer, most of them at odds... Sign in to see full entry.

This companion piece to the excellent uplifting tribute The Greatest Generation is as moving and timeless as the original, drawing on the letters of veterans of the Second World War as well as home front veterans and the progeny of both.

The Greatest Generation -- Tom Brokaw

All of us have family that fought in World War II, that lived through the Great Depression. No matter where you are from, no matter what nation, the entire globe was affected by both these events, the latter in some ways precipitating the former.

Gathering Storm -- Morris Dees with James Corcoran

I read the other day where a man in Michigan was sentenced for terrorist activities stemming from his involvement with a militia group. I guess this type of lunatic fringe behaviour will never go away. Which is why books like Gathering Storm: America's Militia Threat are so important. Originally... Sign in to see full entry.

The Dead Sea Scrolls Deception -- Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh

What an entertaining read. And shame on the Catholic Church and its suppression of the material found at Qumran in 1947, referred to collectively as the Dead Sea Scrolls. No, this book is not a conspiracy theory extrapolation. It is a well-researched history of the Qumran findings and how one group... Sign in to see full entry.

The New Killer Diseases -- Elinor Levy and Mark Fischetti

Wanna read something scary? Wanna read something really scary? Try The New Killer Diseases on for scariness. It scared the hell out of me, like no horror novel or movie has ever done (but then my suspension of disbelief isn’t very suspended when it comes to hack-and-slash killers or runaway...

World On Fire -- Amy Chua

Amy Chua has written an extremely timely and important book that deserves not only recognition in academic circles, but begs to be read by anyone involved in the world’s political and economic globalization process. It is a great read that packs a pointed punch, one stated throughout the book and in... Sign in to see full entry.
