Therefore, this year I decided to keep track of the books I read. Looking back over the list, and considering how much I like to get book recommendations, I thought others might be interested in my biased and totally unprofessional opinions. It also seems like a nice non-medical year in review type exercise.
So I am posting it here. Feel free to ignore. I am am sure to be back sometime soon with some resuscitation or evidence based nerdiness. Wishing you all a great New Year…. I have included links to all of these books.
- Embedded Autonomy: States and Industrial Transformation (Princeton Paperbacks).
- Artists | Theory | Thoughts.
- Subscribe To Book Chase;
- Globalisation and European Integration: Critical Approaches to Regional Order and International Relations (Routledge Studies in Globalisation).
These are Amazon affiliate links. That means that if you click the link and buy the book, I get a small amount of money. The cost to you is unchanged. You can think of it as a way to support the many costs of running First10EM, if you feel like the site deserves your support. If you are uncomfortable with that, just go to amazon yourself and search for the book.
I am not trying to sell you anything which should become obvious by the opinions I express about a lot of these books. I really like the concept of this book series: take an accurate account of history, and then re-explain the events around a single fictional character who happens to be a lech and a buffoon.libertyinsurancebrokers.org/plugins/kolelysi/2881.php
RA for All: BPL Book Discussion: Mr. Penumbra's Hour Bookstore
A reasonably interesting science fiction concept, but not good enough that I will read book 2 in the series. Which is pretty rare for me. I really liked this book. It is by the author of The Martian , and not nearly as good as that book, but it is a fun science fiction novel about life and crime on a moon base. I am not usually a huge reader of fantasy, but that seems to be what I bought to start this year. This was an excellent novel following a ragtag group of criminals and misfits on an impossible heist. I definitely recommend it for a fun read.
They were double crossed in book 1. The sequel is all about revenge. This is sort of a parody of the fantasy genre.
What is Kobo Super Points?
It was quite funny, but the story was also good. I will probably keep reading this series, but the fact that there are 41 books to get through is a little daunting. Part comedy, part social commentary, this was an entertaining novel about sex and relationships, based around a divorcee searching for meaning in the year after her son left home for college. An excellent non-fiction exploring how we can have better conversations. I have been meaning to write a blog post about some of these ideas for a while, but for now people will just have to read the book.
Well written, but overall just an average story. Reasonable for a day by the pool, but overall not a great book. An absolutely incredible read. This was a great book for an easy read.
- I'd like to be notified of new arrivals in the following categories..
- Electromagnetism (Manchester Physics Series).
- Office 2010 Workflow: Developing Collaborative Solutions (Experts Voice in Sharepoint)!
A nice fantasy fiction about a school teacher visiting the Tower of Babylon, where everything that can go wrong does go wrong. This collection of short essays is the first book I have read by Sedaris. They were interesting and funny. I will definitely read more Sedaris in the future. It took me a while to get into this book, but I ultimately loved it. A fairly standard action page-turner, but made more interesting by the fact that McNab really was part of the SAS, and therefore provides interesting insight into operations details.
However, the not infrequent nonsensical sentence or jarring grammar made the reading less enjoyable. I love design. I love the concepts in this books, especially ideas about how design contributes to and can be used to avoid error. Overall, reads a little too much like a textbook to be super enjoyable though.
The Legal Vulnerability of Roe v. Wade
This is a beautifully written story, told from 3 different perspectives, about refugees from Sri Lanka and their saga trying to find refuge in Canada. Highly recommended. I have liked everything by Ken Follett. This is not the best of his novels, but he knows how to write a good page turner. I know of no author who has mastered comedic language quite like Wodehouse. His books are always a pleasure to read.
Ken Dawson - Designer
Wodehouse is one of the reasons I need this list. He wrote so much, and I have read almost everything. An exploration of sex and gender, and a discussion of whether there is a biologic foundation.
An absolute must read, whether you are in medicine or not. Medical science has been broken in so many ways by the involvement of industry money. Using interesting stories about medical devices, this book chronicles many of those deficiencies.
I have considered this one of my favorite novels since reading it in my early teens. I love learning and thinking about the fallibilities of the human brain. I should have really liked this booked. It is Eurovision in space. I should of liked it, but honestly most of the time I found myself bored or lost in overly confusing sentences. Rule System. Apocalypse World Engine. BRP Basic Roleplaying.
