    Nothing but the forum while waiting for SAP or Slow Ass Program to run. When I flew a lot i would read mainly magazines especially Readers Digest. I quit reading novels so I would get some sleep.

    The FBI's most famous hostage negotiator explains why everything we've been told about how to negotiate is wrong. Plenty of case history examples too.

    Recently, I decided to find out why Hemingway is so celebrated. So far, I've read The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms, and I'm about to start For Whom the Bell Tolls.

    So far, I'm impressed. ;)

    I highly recommend Tribe. It’s a fairly quick read but it focuses on the disconnect we have with one another due to the structure of society and relates that to things such as PTSD.

    after you finish, jump into some faulkner. i'd recommend starting with 'the sound and the fury' and 'as i lay dying'. 'the sheltering sky' by paul bowles fits in there as well.

    just finished up 'a people's history of the united states' and have moved on to 'ghandi - the years that changed the world'. 'people's history' is a tremendous book. incredibly dense but i believe it should be required reading for everyone no matter what your political feelings.

    on the to read stack:
    the science of storytelling - will storr
    voices from chernobyl - svetlana alexievich
    last witnesses: an oral history of the children of WWII - svetlana alexievich
    upheaval: turning points for nations in crisis - jared diamond
    on the plain of snakes: a mexican journey - paul theroux
    deadlines on the front line: travels with a veteran war correspondent - paul moorcraft
    into the silence: the great war, mallory and the conquest of everest - wade davis
    cinematographer style: complete interviews vol I & II - jon fauer

    It's been awhile since this has been updated. In the last few months I've finished:

    Extreme Ownership - Jocko Willink

    The Dichotomy of Leadership - Jocko Willink

    Stealing Fire; How Silicon Valley, the Navy SEALs, and maverick scientists are revoltionizing the way we live and work - Steven Kotler

    A Fly Rod of Your Own - John Gierach

    Death In The Long Grass - Peter Hathaway Capstick

    I just finished listening to Alexander The Great by Philip Freeman. I'll be buying a hard copy of the book for sure. Alexander was a fascinating person and incredible leader. I also want to get my hands on the ancient biography of Alexander that was written by Arrian.

    I'm also listening to Valkyrie: The Story of the Plot to Kill Hitler. Written by Florence Fehrenbach, Jerome Fehrenbach and Philipp Freiherr von Boeslager.

    On the bookshelf I have The Art of War and Power by Napoleon Bonaparte. It's sitting next to Sun Tzu's The Art of War, which I've read so I'm interested to compare them.

    Not sure if its been mentioned but I'm reading "Cant hurt me" by David Goggins, a navy seal. Definitely a must read.

    finished 'one day in the life of ivan desinovich'. half way through first book of 'the gulag archipelago'. i'd put them on the must read list as it's a piece of history everyone should understand.

    also finished 'voices from chernobyl'. it's the book that the hbo series was based on. f'ing haunting.

    i'm about to start book 5 of the expanse series. hard sci-fi and it makes me love the Amazon series even more. i'm flipping between it and gulag because gulag is a dense, heavy read.

    bunch of stuff for the studio in progress too. 'documentary storytelling', 'documentary editing', 'filming the fantastic' and 'the technique of film & video editing'.

    on the to read stack:
    - upheaval, jared diamond
    - last witnesses: an oral history of the children of wwII, svetlana alexievich
    - creative nonfiction, philip gerard
    - the brothers karamazov, fyodor dostoevsky

    i’m on a big russian literature kick right now. really enjoying it. i’ve read ‘the master and margarita’ four times now. one of my favorite books of all time and when you think about when it was written, it’s even more amazing.

    last time i was in moscow, i discovered a restaurant that was named after the book. didn’t get a chance to eat there so it’s on the list for the next visit.

    I ran across this site a few weeks ago looking for an ebook. There is a lifetime full of media there. The book I was looking for is "Predictably Irrational - The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions"by Dan Airely.

    A far cry from Hemingway or Dostoevsky, but I’ve been sucked into some serious trash my wife has been getting on Audible. Think 50 Shades of Gray and equally filthy. Good for my 40m commute.

    The Idea of You by Robinne Lee

    Love and Other Words by Christina Lauren

    the Soulmate Equation by Christina Lauren.

    Also just finished:

    I Know This Much is True (old, but I never read it) by Wally Lamb

    and

    The Bomber Mafia by Malcolm Gladwell

    Due to being a huge fan of Yellowstone and 1883, I’m reading Kings of Texas: The 150 Year Saga of an American Ranching Empire by Don Graham. It’s probably obvious that it’s about the King Ranch in South Texas….damn good read so far!

    Reading the Jack Ryan series by Tom Clancy, currently on #7: Executive Orders. Great series, but definitely longer reads than most.
