My Share of the Task: A Memoir I read this immediately after reading Broadwell's bio of David Petraeus . This book is exponentially better. It opens with his foreword that publishing was delayed by a year due to editing and security screening by the Pentago...

Sermon(s) of the Week (5/31 - 6/6, 2015) Hershael York and Bill Henard on Prayer
Two local sermons this week, both on the same topic, both with a notable passion, and both on an area I struggle with. Hershael York (Buck Run Baptist) begins a series on Elijah "A Man Just Like Us," beginning with James and looking at what James wrote abou...

The Art of Learning by Josh Waitzkin (Book Review #51 of 2015)
The Art of Learning: A Journey in the Pursuit of Excellence 2.5 stars. This book comes highly recommended by Tim Ferriss (who bought the rights to the audio version) and many Ferriss-types who frequent his podcast. I found it fell far short of the hype. Per...

Sermon of the Week (6/7 - 6/13, 2015) Matt Proctor on Romans 1-2

All In: The Education of General David Petraeus It would be interesting to know whether Petraeus' wife and other associates would have determined that this book was written by a mistress if it had not been leaked by an FBI inquiry. It's clear, especially to...

World Order This book allows you to read a political history of the modern world as well as a book by a Secretary of State. I had just finished Fukuyama's Origins of Political Order and Political Order and Decay, so those books are in my comparison. This is...
