Great scifi story about a future generation of humans whose existence is threatened by "outsiders" called "the buggers." Moral questions arise about collateral damage and how brutal humans might have to get to save themselves against barbarians. Now popular reading/discussion amongst military/intel circles.

Ender's Game (Ender Wiggins Saga #1) by Orson Scott Card

I am not normally a sci fi fan, but "Enders Game" was recommended by a retired CIA officer and separately a retired foreign service officer. So I bought and finished the book in day. Fluid read. It's a sci fi story that explores the moral imlpications of "all out war" with the threat of human extinction and "collateral damage." Literally required reading in the military/intel worlds.

Well-written, eloquent and a compelling read. I read it cover to cover in one day. What drives people to value worthless "stuff" to the extent they lose their jobs, their friends, their families? Is there a "cure?" Find out in this fascinating study. Great writing by two eminent pyschologists.

First, it's a wonderful story, eloquently told. It's a "good read," as booklovers say.

Above all, great characters, living life to its fullest, in a nursing home and beyond.
