OK…OK…what am I reading at the present time?
1. A Bright Shining Lie – John Paul Vann and America in Vietnam by Pulitzer Prize Winner Neil Sheehan. WOW…WOW…WOW…
2. That Used To Be Us – How America Fell Behind In The World It Invented AND How We Can Come Back – by Thomas L. Friedman and Michael Mandelbaum…I have waited a looooong time in anticipation of this work… Prescient, sobering…a call to action by two authors who care deeply about the present future of the ongoing American experiment. In the running for my favorite of 2012.
3. Vietnam: A History – by Stanley Karnow – Winner of the Pulitzer Prize.
b. Boomerang: Travels in the New Third World
c. Grand Pursuit: The Story of Economic Genius
