Books to check out

Some book titles to check out.

Katharine Graham's Personal History is sensational. I think everybody ought to read that.

There's one called The Bottomless Well, about energy, that I love. There's one about computer science, Ray Kurzweil's bookóI have a preprint, so I'm not sure when it's coming outócalled Singularity Is Near, about artificial intelligence. The Tom Friedman book [The World Is Flat] is supergood. Jeffrey Sachs wrote a book called The End of Poverty, the Jack Welch book Winning came out this year, and don't forget [Jared Diamond's] Collapse, which is the follow-on to one of the best books of all time [Guns, Germs, and Steel].
