What Should I Do with My Life? by Po Bronson. “True story of people who answered the ultimate question”. A friend gave this to me knowing I’m looking for meaningful work. I had a few “aha” moments while reading it, but the writing at times seemed awkward. Most inspiring was the author gave up a successful Wall Steet career to follow his bliss, and with average writing skills turned out a NYT bestseller. Go figure.
The Princes of Ireland by Edward Rutherford. I’ve read earlier books by the same author many years ago, and don’t remember them being so dull and seemingly churned out. I looked forward to a quick read with a lot of easily digested historical information, but found it unsatisfying.
Quicksilver by Neal Stephenson. This is historical narrative at its best, and with a few twists to boot. I found it challenging, and was totally captivated by the writing, the story and the characters. Looking forward to The Confusion.
