Guns, Germs and Steel
but I have been reading that for a few months off and on. It's well written, easy to read...and apparently very contraversional/hated in the history buff community (i.e. history subreddits)

In meantime I did read
Amusing ourselves to death - which was different then I expected, it has a very hyperconservative attitude and I have a knee jerk reaction to disagree with such thing. But he does make good points about how each medium is different and that learning from video media cannot replace learning from a written media.

The Honest Truth About Dishonesty: How We Lie to Everyone--Especially Ourselves - which was good, it didn't present me with new information as I have heard of a lot of theories and experiments mentioned in other books. But it's an interesting read if you like books about fickleness of the human mind, which I do.


yeah....I kind of don't read fiction lately.
