That Fine Italian Hand by Paul Hofmann
That Fine Italian Hand

Angela Ross, October 4, 2012

If you love Italy and its culture, this book is essential to a better understanding of how and why things work there. Written by Paul Hofmann, who was chief of the New York Times Rome bureau for many years, it reveals details about a wide variety of topics including everything from tax dodging, education, espresso, the mafia, and Mussolini, to history, family and contrasts between North and South. Just as Hofmann did in his guide to 100 smaller Italian cities, Cento Citta', he shows an intimate, affectionate and entertaining knowledge of a multi-layered country.

Feed by M. T. Anderson

Angela Ross, February 3, 2012

Who needs computers,iPhones or even Google when "the Feed" resides in your brain? Your desires, preferences and interests are stored and come back to you in ads and suggestions on the feed. A story, although intended for the young adult audience, resonates with all of us as. The future is here and it knows who you are and what you want. Fascinating and prescient story.

Jews, God and History by Max I. Dimont
Jews, God and History

Angela Ross, December 18, 2010

One of the most interesting history books I've read, it covers such a broad spectrum of periods and events, yet in an appropriately detailed way, that it inspires further reading on the many topics included. Dimont proves to be a brilliant historian and researcher. It clarifies current events as well as introducing one to the amazing history of the jewish people. Highly recommended.
