Listen, Liberal by Thomas Frank.

Am unsure about starting this, is it any good? I've almost finished What's Wrong with Kansas, and for a
book widely talked about as being revolutionary within political circles I've found it very underwhelming.

I read about 1/2 of Listen, Liberal in the bookstore and I thought it was a pretty good analysis of how much the Democratic Party changed with Clinton and the DLC, but it wasn't anything to write home about.

Didn't know the world of computers had "classics".

They're called discrete math and combinatorics books. Tongue  But the original for that book was written in the 1970's and it is more about mathematical foundations than anything.

Kind of focused on internship interviews right now...hopefully will have  time for some more "fun" reading in a couple of months.

Just finished reading Real Education by Charles Murray and am working on Human Accomplishment.  Plan to read some fiction after this, though I'm not sure what yet.
