My Reading List
Below you’ll find a list of books (mostly non-fiction) that I’ve recently read. I’d recommend any of these as your next book if you’re looking for some good prose and new knowledge:
Steinbeck never told you about those who decided to hold out against dust storms so powerful that shaking another person’s would cause a static shock that knocked both over. Timothy Egan does, and these lesser known stories are riveting. Must read.
Brian Krebs exposes the world of organized cyber crime, from pharmaceutical spam mail to ransomware. Learn about an underworld that you likely know little, if anything about. It’s one that’s still operating today, and you are at risk.
Detroit native Charlie LeDuff spills out the reality of the city’s fall, complete with corrupt politicians and anecdotes from the worst affected, in vivid detail. If you’re a newcomer to Detroit, this is required reading to keep you grounded. See my review.
Ze’ev Chafets returns from Israel to live in his hometown – Detroit. Grandson of a murdered shopkeeper, Chafets offers a uniquely personal account of Detroit’s turmoil. And he discuses the most divisive of Detroit’s issues – race.
