This book's title entrigued me and I immediately looked it up on B&N. Sounds very interesting. I wonder...if it weren't for the short lifespans and lack of need for history education, would suicide bombers hail Samson as their idol?
An assortment of comic books (particularly the new Batwoman) and some Warhammer rule books -- WHY AM I SUCH A NERD?!
Also, The General Theory of Love was a great read. Wonderful breakdown of the biochemical and evolutionary development of love as a mechanism for survival. Just don't bother reading the conclusion, it feels way too much like reading the conclusion of Galileo's Dialogo sapra to be worth reading.
Because rulebooks are fun? Honestly though, when I still used to play pen and paper too, I could nerd myself down completely with addons and rulebooks as well. That was almost more fun getting immersed in the universe that way than actually playing it.
I just went to the library and checked out Freethinkers by Susan Jacoby, The End of Faith by Sam Harris, and Breaking the Spell by Daniel Dennett. I also have The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Infidel, and Why I am Not a Christian on order. Woo! I started reading Jacoby and Harris last year but never got through the books completely. I'm hoping I can do it now. Dennett sounds interesting, and I don't think my education would be complete without reading at least one book by all four "Horsemen" and Dennett is the only one I haven't read.
With the exception of Jacoby, I have read (or am reading, in the case of Bertrand Russell) all of these and found them all very interesting. Hitchhiker's Guide series is just ingenious and throughly engrossing. Infidel is probably the most riveting as it is a personal tale...heartbreaking but inspiring at the some time. Enjoy!
