Spring Deployment Reading Material

  • Steve Martin: Shopgirl

    Steve Martin: Shopgirl
    An instant keeper, comedian Steve Martin writes a unique, beautiful story about love, life and all in between with exceptional storytelling ability and brave humor. (Reading it for the 4th time) (*****)

  • Robert K. Massie: Loosing The Bonds

    Robert K. Massie: Loosing The Bonds
    A fantastic book that tells the complete story of the anti-apartheid movement. A liberal writer who doesn't pull punches or unfairly portray the figures involved, Massie's account should be read and remembered forever by any who take the time to read this massive tome of justice triumphing over oppression. (So good I'm rereading it!) (*****)

  • Gary Giddins: Bing Crosby: A Pocketful Of Dreams (The Early Years 1903-1940)

    Gary Giddins: Bing Crosby: A Pocketful Of Dreams (The Early Years 1903-1940)
    Entertaining and highly interesting, Bing Crosby recieves the biography (or the first part of a noble effort at a great one) his talent and impact have always deserved. (****)

  • Stephen Philip Cohen: India: Emerging Power

    Stephen Philip Cohen: India: Emerging Power
    An enjoyable and useful chapter in my lifelong quest to learn about the countries, cultures and religions of the world, this book offers a very good look at India, what its done in the past and what it could do in the future. A worthy and valuable ally of America if paid the proper attention and respect, India could also slip into chaos or even nuclear war. Fascinating material! (****)

  • Margaret Thatcher: Statecraft

    Margaret Thatcher: Statecraft
    Of Britain's holy trinity of prime ministers, she's written the best book (though Blair hasn't had the chance yet). Her analysis of China, the EU and the Middle East is spot-on. (*****)
