Renaldo 75I would not say Renaldo is a real page turner, but if you like to read over a span of time and not try to finish within a couple days, this is a good option.

Written by Jason Neubauer Wednesday, 04 February 2015 16:19

Plato_Googleplex_75In Plato at the Googleplex: Why Philosophy Won't Go Away, Rebecca Newberger Goldstein offers some rather illuminating insight into why the same philosophy that was espoused by the ancient Greeks has survived these few millennia past the dark ages and the age of enlightenment, past the existentialists wearing big black shoes and speaking French for no apparent reason, and into today's curriculum for anyone who is looking to gain an understanding of philosophy in general.

Samit Basu | Resistance (Titan Books)

| Print |

Written by Brent Mueller Wednesday, 06 August 2014 20:56

It’s these details and many others of Basu’s story that draw the reader in and make them think, if only once, “Yeah, I probably would do that if I had superpowers.”
