Anyway, putting off the Kentucky Cycle for a bit because I just got The Quest (I love Daniel Yergin)

The Prize is one helluva book.

Have there been any post 9/11 updates to it?

Seven Sisters by Sampson is a great predecessor to The Prize.

Really liked his book on Chaos Theory.

I'm not sure what to think about this. The writer's style is quite terse, almost telegraphic at times, and it seems to be using James Burke's old "Connections" column as its model.

Did the 12/Ghosts of Belfast thing the other week, read Collusion, its (lesser) sequel last night/this morning. Still fast paced and entertaining, but not as good. Not really feeling compelled to read the next one.

Anyhow I remembered that I haven't read this since highschool:



...time it came out again
