Books For Future Reading October 2, 2013

The following books looked appealing and I felt they would be of interest to our readers:

Calcutta     Amit Chaudhuri

I am intrigued by books about the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China). This book is about the birthplace of the author and it explores his homecoming yearly to visit his elderly father. He writes in an essay form describing interesting characters and their observations about daily life in India.

The Numbers Game: Why Everything You Know About Soccer Is Wrong     David Sally and Chris Anderson

The authors look into how rigorous analysis can be used to discount what experienced soccer fans define as conventional wisdom in their sport. I want to read this book to compare how the authors explore environmental factors and other areas that affect world-class athletes.
