NonFiction: Politics, Endless War, Math


Fear: Trump in the White House by Bob Woodward. As of 9:25AM on Sep 13, 2018 this book has 205 holds. Page 151 says, "How many missiles," Xi asked."

Liars, Leakers, and Liberals: the case against the anti-Trump conspiracy by Jeanine Pirro.  More political talk. Page 256 says, On the local level, the stakes are just as high."

The Fighters: Americans in combat in Afghanistan and Iraq by C.J. Chivers. More than 2.7 million Americans have served in either country. Chivers follows the stories of six people. Page 164 says, "It was a two-aircraft reconnaissance mission to check out new ground."

Weird Math: a teenage genius & his teacher reveal the strange connections between math & everyday life by David Darling and Agnijo Banerjee. I dislike that subtitle, it just sounds silly and "clickbaity". Page 79 says, "In the 1950s, he was working on a mathematically simplified model of the weather."
