In the last occurence of a thread similar to this, I got some good tips. I think it is time to revive an oldie but goodie. I've been reading Stephen Ambrose's works, D-Day, Pegasus Bridge, etc. It was very interesting and I highly recommend them, if you are at all interested in that kind of stuff. Most recently I read Stephen Hawking's more recent work The Universe in a Nutshell. It was okay but not nearly as interesting to me as his previous work, A Brief History of Time. The new work is probably more entertaining with a large dossage of Hawkings delightful wit but, it was a little superficial for my tastes. What have you been reading lately?
