Reading Roundup: October 2011

Fall is the release of new books and in October there were quite a few good ones:

  • Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson-  This well-publicized bio was quite interesting.  The information covered in the time leading to the creation and departure from Apple were covered in other books but with a little more background information.  The new material centers on his return to Apple, the creation of the new consumer products, and his fight with cancer.
  • Boomerang by Michael Lewis- In this book, Lewis turns away from looking at the subprime mess in the US to looking at the credit crisis across the world.  An eye-opening read.
  • Sex on the Moon:  The Amazing Story Behind the Most Audacious Heist in History by Ben Mezrich.  How does Mezrich find these people?
  • Sky’s The Limit:  British Cycling’s Quest to Conquer the Tour de France by Richard Moore-  Moore is perhaps the best writer on cycling today.  Waiting for his book on Lemond and Hinault to become available in the US.
  • Feeding the Monster by Seth Mnookin- A behind the scenes look at the ownership and management of the Boston Red Sox
  • The King Jesus Gospel:  The Original Good News Revisited by Scott McKnight- A challenging book which seeks to answer one question:  What is the gospel?
  • Insurrection by Peter Rollins-  Thought-provoking
  • A Million Miles by Donald Miller- This is the book I re-read this month.  I’m re-reading certain books that I thought were great and I enjoyed this one more the second time through.
  • Voices by Arnaldur Indridason
  • Headhunters by Jo Nest
  • Headstone by Ken Bruen
  • Collusion by Stuart Neville
  • The Beaten Track by Sarah Menkedick
