From The Bookshelf

— Matt Harris @ 1:28 pm

A couple of more books I have been reading, due to the good graces of the Los Angeles Public Library:

Eats, Shoots and Leaves by Lynn Truss:
Strangely enough, I think this book is a little too long, even if it is only 168 pages. I just wanted some simple rules on punctuating. I got those, but also received a lot of extraneous humor that wasn’t very informative.
Still, I will probably buy a copy for my collection.

Why We Make Mistakes: How We Look Without Seeing, Forget Things in Seconds, and Are All Pretty Sure We Are Way Above Average by Joseph T. Hallinan:
An informative book, it goes into a fair amount of detail on how human error occurs. Unfortunately, it doesn’t give a whole lot of useful information about preventing mistakes. A good read for background info, but not something I think I will reread.

Book Recommendations

— Matt Harris @ 1:46 pm

Some books I have been reading, courtesy of the Los Angeles Public Library

Empires Of Trust by Thomas F Madden:

Most comparisons I have seen comparing Rome and America are comparing contemporay America to the Roman Empire. This book interesting comparison between the Roman Republic and the American Republic. An easy and informative read, with lots of easily digestible Roman history.

Patricia Brigg’s Mercy Thompson series:

This is a nice, contemporay urban fantasy. The focus is on a female mechanic who can change into a coyote. Well written, without all of the sex/death/agnst of the Anita Blake novels.

All of the above are highly recommended.
