A few interesting books...

Recently I have been reading some sociological books on young people and young dudes in particular. It has been a good study and I thought I would recommend them for those hanging with the peoples born after 1970 (and yes, I barely make it into that club by 2 years)

And a few pleasure reads - on audio book…

  • Googled: The End of the World As We Know It by Ken Auletta- Another book about the history of Google but this one has some really interesting stuff about the affect of Google and the Internet on other major media companies, older paradigns. I enjoyed Auletta’s book on Microsoft and this one is great so far. I am a sucker for tech history books.
  • Soren Kierkegaard - The Giants of Philosophy by John j. Stuhr - A very simple audio book on the late Danish philosopher.  For those new to philosophy these little vignettes are pretty good. I bought this one on iTunes and it is read by Charlton Heston…which is cool.
Also reading a bunch of commentaries on the gospel of Luke for our Let Jesus Speak series at the JDub.  Darryl Book and Leon Morris have been friends.  Most recent message can be found here.
Back to tending to the kiddos.
