Lies My Teacher Told Me by James W Loewen
Lies My Teacher Told Me

Brook, June 13, 2007

To use a recently-learned 'textclamation' I picked up from playing World of Warcraft... ZOMG!!!

This book is amazing, disturbing, depressing, and fascinating all at once. Loewen doesn't just tell you what your teacher left out; he also explains why it was left out in the first place. Either because of the teacher's own bias, the economics of textbook publishing, or politics of 'faith,' there are numerous factors unrelated to a child's education that influence what he or she will be taught in American schools.

This is a must-read for anyone that aspires to independent thinking.

The Red Queen: Sex and the Evolution of Human Nature by Matt Ridley
The Red Queen: Sex and the Evolution of Human Nature

Brook, June 8, 2007

Science writing does not have to be dull and Matt Ridley proves it. This is one of the most fascinating books I have ever read of any genre. Highly recommended, 5 stars, A++!!!
