The Shock Doctrine, by Naomi Klein: 5/5, nonfiction, even more baffling on how the Chicago school of economics is ****ing over the world in many ways
Halo Glasslands, by Karen Traviss: 3/5, fiction, one of the tie-in books that kind of sets up Halo 4. your standard action sci-fi fare
One Day, by Chris Nichols: 5/5, fiction, it's a romcom that touches a lot of nerves if you like that kind of stuff. makes you laugh, makes you cry, really cleverly written at times. every chapter is the same date, only one year forward, and you plop down for whatever happens in the lives of the main characters at that particular day each year.
agree, Shock Doctrine 5/5. helps me understand the mindset that creates a term like 'fiscal cliff'.
this book, The Drunkard's Walk; (http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/08/bo...e6mZLYnqLpVzeg
), has some great insights about randomness. can help ease the pain after totally pooching a hockey draft.
