Last books read,

"Tipping Point" well written about what makes things rise or fall from std viruses to economics (hush puppies reemergence).

" The Black Swan" fascinating economic/philosophy type which relates to our field well plus I like the Yogi Berra quotes.

Just finished "How to live with Screwed up people?" uh-oh may have to work on some of my own habits- but really a book about some serious deficiencies and defenses in understanding whats tolerable and what ain't. Saw a couple of lo's in this book.

I just read "Bringing Down the House" about the MIT blackjack team. Before that I read "On the Road" by Jack Kerouac (sp?)

My favorite author is Clive Cussler.

Currently reading "The Appeal" by John Grisham, not real impressed so far. Finished "A thousand splendid sons" here recently. Excellent book but kinda graphic in detail
