I said last weeks that I haven't seen many Christians in the last few month. These are some of the most remarkable works I have seen at the moment. Katharina the Great - This portrayal of Catherine the Great could only be the highlight of Robert Massie's literary orchestration.
Previously he has authored autobiographies of Peter the Great, Nicholas and Alexandra and the Romanovs and even won a Pulitzer Prize. It was voted one of the 100 best titles of the year - a good start. She is a captivating figure and is brought to live by Massie's feather.
It would be that if I was worried about the book, it would be that he would be a little too busy with their manifold matters. Yet these matters were crucial to their lives and their land; they even brought forth the heirs of the Russians crown. Massie's book is a strong personality sketch about a fascinated lady.
This must be one of the best titles of 2011. The Boomerang - Boomerang is a book about Michael Lewis' "Travels to the New Third World". "After writing The Blindside, Moneyball, The Big Short and other million-dollar selling titles, Lewis focuses his attentions on the global economy.
This book is moving at a fast tempo and is full of obscure comedy. "You will see from what you see in his section on Greece that this was exactly the case. When you want to know how the global food insanity has become what it is, and when you want to grasp the impact of global food insanity on low-cost loans, then you may be interested in studying Boomerang.
Here Laurence Bergreen is in his element and wrote a quite interesting book. - Perhaps the most remarkable book of 2011 is Walter Isaacson's autobiography of Apple's founding father Steve Jobs. Steven Levy wrote a bio on a case of interesting timings of Google, a business that was sometimes an Apple partner and sometimes a ngesis; today it's both.
Just like Steve Jobs, Page and Brin are very complicated personalities whose motifs are hard to comprehend. But forever and ever, and sometimes for both, they have really transformed the game. They not only keep trying to make all the information in the worid accessible to all of us, but they have also transformed the way we interact with and comprehend it.
It' a book you should be reading if you want to fully appreciate the huge implications of Google for me and you and all of us. You will be surprised how far it goes in your lifetime.
