Too Big to Fail: The Inside Story of How Wall Street and Washington Fought to Save the Financial System--And Themselves by Andrew Ross Sorkin
Too Big to Fail: The Inside Story of How Wall Street and Washington Fought to Save the Financial System--And Themselves

Rebecca Rosas, August 4, 2012

At first I thought that since It was about economics, it would be dry and boring. Once I started reading I could not put it down. The fact that this was real with all the drama and the people who are still making the headlines today was riveting. The way the people who handle billions and billions with non chalance floored me. This was high finance with all the human elements and it WAS REAL. For anyone who wants to know the behind the scenes of the financial issues that still plague us even today, this is a must read.

I could not put it down. The science aspects were fascinating and the human side kept me enraptured. The contribution of Henrietta Lacks to our society is incalculable what this woman went through is unfathomable. Don't start this unless you have time to finish it!

Peter Hamilton creates a universe that is amazing. I couldn't put it down. The thought that the worlds and story lines are going to converge is amazing. If you love science fiction this is a must read book.

True Compass: A Memoir by Edward M. Kennedy
True Compass: A Memoir

Rebecca Rosas, January 1, 2010

Edward Kennedy was a man for the decade-his endorsement of Barack Obama was a stepping stone to his presidency. He truly shaped the first decade of the new century.
