Recommended books: George R. R. Martin, Rick Strassman, and Andrew McAfee

Here are books I finished in December. I finally decided to jump into the Game of Thrones series…

A Storm of Swords by George R. R. Martin
A Feast for Crows by George R. R. Martin

Books 3 and 4 in the series. HBO is midway through Book 3 and has faithfully followed the timeline and stories, but both will increasingly diverge from here.

Be Slightly Evil by Venkatesh Rao

I enjoy his blog and read 1/2 of this book. I stopped reading it one day and just knew I wouldn’t come back to it, so it’s listed here for record-keeping.

DMT: The Spirit Molecule by Rick Strassman

Wow.

Race Against The Machine by Andrew McAfee and Erik Brynjolfsson

We are seeing a socioeconomic transformation — driven by computers and this internet thing — that has not been seen for decades, perhaps as far back as the late 1800s. This book gets at the why and the how and its implications for individuals and companies.

That’s it for December. What books have you enjoyed reading? Not that I need to send Amazon more money, but I will.

    At Home; Short History of Private Life – Bill Bryson. A cute non-fiction page turner. Light hearted enough to pick up whenever, and super fast pace and filled with practical anecdotes ~
