Prisoners of Shangri-La: Tibetan Buddhism and the West by Don Lopez. Great read by who's apparently a great guy.

Władysław Szpilman, "The Pianist"

It became a basis for Polański's movie, as you probably might have guessed.

No, who ever that is.

It's a nom de guerre of a notorious Bangladeshi insurgent, aiming at violently overthrowing Sheikh Hasina's government.

I had two two and a half hour flights and Inferno by Dan Brown fit in nicely.

I just finished up Why the Right Went Wrong by E.J. Dionne. It's an ideologically slanted but comprehensive overview of how the Republican Party got where they are today.

"Where the Right Went Wrong" by Pat Buchanan wasn't enough!? Tongue

I might have to try "how," "when," and "what" next.

Karl Barth, The Humanity of God. 'The HUMANITY of God?!' one of my floormates cried at one point earlier this semester. 'That's a strange title for a book!' She is in her fourth semester of seminary. You'd think she'd grok the Incarnation by now.

A good read so far, and the first of Spong's books I've ever opened. I think he overstates his premise, but there do seem to be some genuine nuggets of golden insight.

Heretic!

The Big Fat Surprise by Nina Teicholz.  It's a great book about the flimsy scientific data used to prop up the idea that saturated fat causes obesity and heart disease, which is now accepted as gospel truth.  I'm reading it to kill time on the Sabbath just because I can.  If SDAs can present its pro-vegetarian health info on the Sabbath, then there's no reason they can't read health books during that time.

I'm also trying to spend the Sabbath hours reading Did God Kill Jesus, which is supposedly a critique of penal substitution, but I currently have that on hold until I finish with Teicholz.

"Constructing Cassandra: Reframing Intelligence Failure at the CIA, 1947-2001" by Milo Jones & Philippe Silberzahn and "The Cold War: A New History" by John Lewis Gaddis. Both are for a graduate class in the fall for the school's M.S. in Intelligence Analysis program titled "The Roots of 21st Century Conflict". Had to get it as a directed study since it's scheduled the same time as "Introduction to Digital Forensics". Tongue
