    World's In Collision

    I came across this book many years ago and found it facinating. Skeptic magazine did a whole issue on this book claiming the whole thing was peudoscience, However they never explained How any specific theory was wrong. I believe Professer Veliscousky was on to something. His...

    Sophia Loren: A Life In Pictures

    Nice title, with an appropriate pun for what is mainly a picture book. Published in 2008, it is a compilation work, with a small amount of bio text combined with pix by many photographers. Large coffee table format. I have been in love with The Goddess since I first saw her in...

    Model Ecosystems

    Full title is Stability & Complexity in Model Ecosystems, by Lord Robert May of Oxford. Keen and attentive readers of my drivel and dare will recall that I wrote about this book in another Experience when I was last reading it. Now I'm reading again. It wasn't planned. I picked...

    "the Bell Jar" S.plath

       "The Bell Jar" by Sylvia Plath. I was blown away by her style of writing, beautiful, amazing  voice of a poet  narrating a story in proze. Be careful though, this is an authobiographical novel about Plath's struggle with suicidal depression, and it will...

    On Bullshit

    Written by a prominent moral philosopher, Professor Emeritus Harry Frankfurt of Princeton University, this is quite some book. For starters it's about a 30-something page academic paper published in this tiny pocketbook sized hardback edition. Only a famous in-house scholar...

    I Really Enjoyed...

    The World Without Us by Alan Wiesman. I found it to be really interesting, as a matter of fact it's now one of my favorite books. Unlike my usual way of reading, I read this sporadically and gave myself time to ruminate over what I'd read, and over all it was seriously...

    Principles Of Physical Geology

    by Professor Arthur Holmes FRS. A blast from the past. The other day I read something, I forget what now, about magma. I knew it was about hot stuff from the earth, but couldn't say anymore than that. I went to my bookshelves. Took down this great volume. Index. Page numbers...

    The Laws Of Thermodynamics

    I Found This Book To Be Fascinating

    When this group logo appeared on my profile page as a possible interest I made my decision on the picture alone. What I saw on the picture itself was the Bible. I really find fascinating about this book is that no one can just read its pages and not have their life transformed. I...

    The Origin Of Species

    The great Charles Darwin's classic. It is good to read, especially given that nineteenth century scholarship is not renowned for the quality of writing involved. CD too can be a bit convoluted from time to time, but in the main he writes simply, clearly and to the point. For any...
