Ploesti The Great Ground-Air Battle of August 1, 1943. The co-author lived 20 miles from here and a local airman survived the battle. Sad book.

Motherless Brooklyn. I wanted to finish the book before seeing the movie. The book is fantastic, I hope they stay true to it's dark humor. The part where the main character (who has Tourettes) goes to a meditation session in a Buddhist retreat and his subsequent sexual encounter, had tears running down my face.
However, I am already skeptical - the book is set in the mid 80's and the trailers I have seen place it in the late 50's - early 60's not quite sure how that will translate.

recently picked up a series of books on communist china, specifically under Maoist rule. There were others on the Nazis and of course some survival books. Should be a good read.

I've been reading classic literature for a while. But last week I started to read one psychological book by Dale Carnegi "How to Win Friends and Influence People". Quite useful book I should say. But I haven't tried any advice from here for now.

Well, HollyMiller. I can sum up the book in one sentence, HolyMiller. HollyMiller, people like to hear their own name, HolyMiller.

Coddling of the American Mind is a great read and explains a lot about the current generation Z that is march in the streets for communism, and crying about identity.

The Madness Of Crowds by Douglas Murray covers similar territory, but isn't based around just Generation Z but the culture at large.

I am currently reading " the Rise and Fall of the third Reich".

The similarities to the actions of the left wing of today is troubling .
