After a short but rich period of SciFi intrigue, eating away almost all publications made by Issac Asimov (who is still my best SciFi author) I thought i'd give current affairs a try.
I just finished reading a book called "Gideon's Spies" (the 2005 edition), a great espionage biography about the Israeli Mossad and how they operated, how they executed their operations, and other gung-ho 'for God & Country' stuff. It's ok from a 'gripping' point of view, but it does give some insight into some details for the detail-hungry history buffs out there.
Nowdays, I'm reading Thomas L. Friedman's "The World is Flat", and although I'm on my first few chapers, I am catching myself saying " AHA! That's what I thought" all the time, or "Hey, it DOES makes sense". It's ok, so far, and gives novices a great opportunity to get up to date with current Internet-related events, activities, technologies and services.
I'll see how it goes...but so far, it's way better that Berners-Lee's "Weaving the Web". Stay tuned. :-)
