Understand History, Understand Today

Jerusalem: the BiographySo many of today's conflicts across the world are based on the conflicts of yesterday.  Pick up a book at the library that helps you understand the underlying reasons behind it all.  One I'm reading right now feels more like an epic novel than a dry textbook.  Check out Jerusalem: the Biography by Simon Sebag Montefiore.

Fasten Your Seatbelts

Cruising AttitudeA recent book I'm reading has me cracking up one minute followed by a solid minute of reading with my jaw dropped open.  Check out Cruising Attitude: Tales of Crashpads, Crew Drama, and Crazy Passengers at 35,000 Feet by Heather Poole.  You'll never look at a flight attendant the same way, and you'll be much, much nicer to them.
