REVIEW: Almost everyone who examines capitalism comes away with finger-and-thumb firmly pinching the nose. Taking a positive approach, Robert Reich exposes the faults but also recommends solutions in his superb "Saving Capitalism: For the Many, Not the Few" (ISBN: 9780385350570).
BOOK REVIEW: Books about World War II rarely discuss probability theory, mathematics, and observation of logistics procedures, which makes "Blackett's War: The Men Who Defeated the Nazi U-Boats and Brought Science to the Art of Warfare" (ISBN-13: 978-0307595966) by Stephen Budiansky, a refreshing change. But the horrors of combat are not overlooked (warning; graphic descriptions ahead).
BOOK REVIEW: Author, revolutionary, liar. Wait, perhaps 'creative assembler of semi-factual data' might be a better way to describe the extraordinary life of Andre Malraux. ("Malraux: A Life" by Olivier Todd; Alfred A. Knopf, ISBN-13: 978-0375407024.)
