These are some books I had put on my list and luckily I got enough on my gift card this Christmas to get them.
I am a sucker for books such as this especially one in which I feel I need much improvement in the area of focus. The three kinds of focus: inner, outer and other, hopefully will give me some insight into making progress.
I have not read a Pynchon novel since Against The Day and I must say I really enjoyed it. However, I have apprehension in reading him because of the vast amount of analogies and in my case a handy dictionary nearby to interpret.
Once again this is one of these economic/psychology books that I can’t seem to resist. This hopefully will give me a perspective to my vision and judgment about how scarcity applies to all people in the world both rich and poor.
I have never read much on World War II having relied on John Wayne films and documentaries. However, this book looked very appealing in looking at World War II from an entirely other perspective than I have ever seen. I did not realize that there were over 150,000 deserters in World War II.
