Are You Reading A Good Book?

#61

As an Emergency Manager, I tend to read a lot of disaster related stuff. One good one is “Guns, Germs, and Steel,” I have just started into it, and it was recommended to me by a friend in the field.

It sounds like a germ warfare book that has a disastrous ending? That is some horrific stuff? Many people have to think outside the box any more? Just saying… I have been reading a number of books where the author takes you from one idea and then totally has you believing something else. I forgot what that writing technique is called.

I read Dale Jrs book on his concussions and a non fiction political thriller about real DOJ corruption during the Enron scandal.

If any of you older, former trigger pullers are into 'Nam history and you read, pick up Flying Through Midnight; I find it interesting learning about what other guys were doing over there; I just finished this book and it’s spell binding. I have a good feeling for what the grunts were going through and I know all about running canals, but this is about the flyboys supporting CIA ops in Laos. Again, well worth the read.
