Moonwalking with Einstein by Joshua Foer (Jonathan Safron Foer's brother).

Foer was tasked with writing an article about the US Memory Championships and became curious as to whether the competitors were gifted with a great memory of if it was a trainable attribute. He wound up in the championships a year late. The book reminds me a lot of word freaks, which was about scrabble competitors. It's mostly story, with facts and tips tossed in but the way it's written is with a very funny, very readable, slant.

A great read, more so if you are, like me, always forgetting names, dates etc. The first real "exercise" he is given, is passed along to the reader so that you can practice as he's learning it and, five days later, I still remember the list.

The Third Rail by Michael Harvey

Chicago's modern day answer to Raymond Chandler? Not quite but he does blend a great bit of the classic noir style in to the modern detective novel.

David Brooks - The Social Animal, only a few chapters in, but full of interesting facts.


Readers of his Op-Ed column in The New York Times know that David Brooks is an aficionado of research in the social sciences, especially psychology, and that he believes it has great practical importance. Now he has written a book, “The Social Animal,” in order to assemble the evidence for a certain conception of the human mind, the wellsprings of action and the causes of success and failure in life, and to draw implications for social policy. The book is really a moral and social tract, but Brooks has hung it on the life stories of two imaginary people, Harold and Erica, who are used to illustrate his theory in detail and to provide the occasion for countless references to the psychological literature and frequent disquisitions on human nature and society.

The Catcher Was A Spy: The Mysterious Life Of Moe Berg.

Only at page 70 so far but it turns out that no one ever really knew Moe Berg. Very interesting and odd story of a baseball player who was fluent in multiple languages and became a spy during WW2.

1) The Age of Ra, by James Lovegrove, a weird and engrossing fantasy in which the Egyptian Pantheon is real and rules the world and
2) Sideshow, by Lindsay Tanner, about Australian politics and the media.

That book by Kostova sounds interesting!

The Secret Histories novels, by Simon R. Green. Just loving this guy's stuff. I've got Game of Thrones already though, as the next book to read, and then likely the rest in that series.
