Animal's People by Indra Sinha

The quote displayed hit me to my inner core.
I have feelings that relate closer to this novel than are comfortable for me to reveal. As truely human beings we need to feel a connection with compassion and identity. Unfortunatly these rights and comforts can be stolen from us and maybe never returned. This is written in a way that a victim may feel. Disturbingly heartbreaking and real in a way that some us can only admit metaphroically.

The Drunkard's Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives by Leonard Mlodinow
The Drunkard's Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives

The title is excellent and very provocative. I actually took a second look at the book based solely on the unusual title.
As it turns out, the book also happens to be based on thoughts that I have had for many years, the importance of randomness and chance and how it can affect our lives.
One step in the opposite direction or one minute early or late can have an impact.
Very interesting.
