February 2018 Books to Read...
Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House by Michael Wolff
5 Star Amazon Review: What can be said, that hasn't already been said about the President?
Nothing in this book will surprise anyone who has been following the trials and tribulations of the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump. His supporters will cry foul, and say some of it isn't true -- and some of it might not be -- but if even 10% of what is in this book is true, holy crap!
Reading this book is like being forced to eat an entire 5 gallon carton of ice cream in one sitting. It is yummy and you don't want to stop. And then you do want to stop but you can't, because the book has you roped in. You should feel good, but in reality you feel awful, because of what you just did to yourself.
So tread lightly, dear reader. You won't want to put the book down, but you won't be better off for reading it, either. If you don't like it, do something productive -- stop eating the ice cream and get off the couch. Make America AMERICA again! (more reviews)
Joe Gibbs: Fourth and One BY Joe Gibbs
5 STAR AMAZON REVIEW: This is a terrific book, it not only gives insights into Joe's NFL career, but you also learn about the the trials and difficulties he experienced off the field as well. You read interesting anecdotes about the NFL, and also about his personal life --how his wife almost died, how Joe's workaholic ways impacted his family, and also caused financial problems. Joe's faith in God enabled him to get through these difficulties and helped him to realize what is really important in life. Because Joe incorporates his deep faith in Jesus Christ into his everyday life, he shares these beliefs and his spiritual thoughts. Some readers may complain about the spiritual aspect of this book, but this is an important part of who the man is. (more reviews)
The Theory of Everything: The Quest to Explain All Reality (2017)
5 STAR AMAZON REVIEW: Dr. Lincoln is
a jolly, approachable-seeming gent and somehow makes very dense material seem accessible, and achieves this about half the time. I agree with the other posters in that this is probably more useful for physics majors than a novice such as myself, but I think his goal was to stretch his audience a little further than they may have anticipated, and in that it succeeds. I went into this with several personal goals: I want to understand GR and SR better than I do, I want to get a handle on all this quantum theory (and predictably still find it almost as opaque as it was when I started), and I wanted to better understand the language(s) of physics. It was not a waste of my time or money, but neither was it what I hoped.
My plan is to go back and brush up on my math, and then try to tackle this again in a few month's time. (more reviews)
