I need to update my recommended reading list on the Brinkzone one of these days to be sure. Funny enough, that's actually how I met Si.

Yeah, loving it, one of the most engrossing books I have ever read I think ,as far as autobiographies go, brilliant.

I've actually had it on my shelves now for about 2 years, people keep buying me books as presents at a rate that far outstrips how many I read per year, whcih is about 5 I'm sad to say.

You saw my list of military related books and recommended McNabs (spell?) stuff, which I did read, and mentioned you lived close to the SAS training areas.

Simes:

The plot development in the EKG book is enthralling.

I hope you spelled it correctly or that I read it correctly and that you meant "plot development" and not "clot development"

nothing like cardiac humor

"Moneyball" by Michael Lewis... and

How do you like Moneyball? I was going to pick that up (after I have my stroke from reading the EKG book). I'm a baseball fan and I'm interested in the financial side of things and Billy Beane's methods.

So far I am enjoying Moneyball. I rarely read for pleasure (something I am not happy with and plan on changing) and a Psychiatrist friend who has done work with the individuals in the book gave it to me. He of course also shared lots of anecdotes that help to enhance the book.

Over the past three years I have been blessed to have access to a MLB clubhouse and the book has greater meaning to me than it would have in years past. I can relate and identify some of the characteristics etc. to what I see today.

What's after the EKG? Do you move on to another system? Or is cardioloy where you plan on staying?

I'm doing an acting internship in cardiology for four weeks in late July and August. I already read Dubin's, which is sort of the classic introductory EKG text, and I'm getting through Marriott's to really nail them down.

Career-wise, no, not cards, I'm probably (90% sure) going into physical medicine & rehabilitation.

Hobbit and Lord Of The Rings!

Love these books. I just bought them both (I bought LOTR in one large hardcover book).

I read the end of the second book (original book 4) and all of the third (original book 5&6) when I had the paperbacks.

I can't believe how much more there is to these books than the movies. Even the extended versions of the movies have many good parts missing.

AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME books!!

Ken Warren Teaches Texas Hold-em (Ill be at the World Series in no time)

Not really. I sat in a game with some of my friends and lost bad. It was embarrassing. I figured Id get some pointers so I will at least last a while longer.

Seven Habits of Highly Effective People

After reading some user review on another book I've read, The Deming Management Methods, a reviewer recommended this book.

I've tried for several weeks to read Atlas Shrugged, by Ayn Rand, just to see what the Love/Hate relationship is with everyone, and after about page 45, I've decided I don't give a shit who John Galt is. Apparently writing isn't one of her strong points either.
