What book are you reading? - March 13, 2013, 05:08 PM

Does anybody still read books? Whatcha reading these days?

I just got started on Nassim Taleb's new book titled Antifragile. If you've read Black Swan, you'd probably enjoy this as well. It's a good make-you-think book that ties in economics, philosophy, and psychology among other things.

At the moment, i'm going through a few books on Schwarzkopf again. Got the urge to re-read them after his death. I punctuate that with audiobooks, mostly fiction, while driving to/from detroit.

Was reading Art of Motorcycle Maintenance becuase everyone told me it was good. Got half way through and couldn't get into it. Thinking about rereading Atlas Shrugged or getting another of the Jack Reacher books.

I thought it was a good general thought, but it definitely became repetitive after a while and a lot of it seemed like a justification for the path he's chosen in life.

I kind of want to ride down there sometime and see if I can find his shop.

I'm reading Four Fish: The Future of the Last Wild Food

It's about how we went from eating almost entirely wild caught fish to half farmed, half wild caught. Also, how it went from many varied species to four basic types.
