Reviews of books that I have read or referenced on the podcast, and whether or not I recommend them.

Book Review: Steve Jobs

I review the biography of Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson. Before reading this review - and in the interest of "full disclosure" - you should know that prior to reading this book, I was not much of a Steve Jobs fan to begin with, nor do I consider myself to be an...

Book Review: Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand

"Unbroken" is the remarkable tale of Louis Silvie Zamperini, a world-class runner who competed in the 1936 Berlin Olympics and who later became a WWII B-24 Bombardier in the Pacific Theater. In late May of 1943, Zamperini's plane - the "Green Hornet" - goes down...

Batman: Earth One Review

The origin story of Batman has been told countless times. In “Batman: Earth One,” writer Geoff Johns and artist Gary Frank take a stab at telling an entirely new and unique take on the Dark Knight’s beginning…and the result is stellar.

Book Review | The Martian by Andy Weir

From the very first line, Mark Watney's glibness in the face of starvation, asphyxiation, and freezing to death on Mars is what made The Martian such an enjoyable read and one of my favorite books this year.

Book Review | The Hit by David Baldacci

Highly-skilled assassin, Will Robie, is back and better than before in The Hit, a taut and exciting thriller in which Robie has to hunt down one of his own.

Book Review | The Devil in the White City

The Columbian Exposition, popularly known as the Chicago World's Fair of 1893, was a magical event that inspired & introduced the world to some of its greatest inventions. It was also the playground for America's first serial killer...

Book Review: Bossypants (audiobook version)

Generally I don't consider listening to audiobooks to be the same as actually "reading" a book, however Tina Fey's endlessly entertaining "Bossypants" is definitely an exception to the rule by easily surpassing the written version.

Book Review: Tales From Development Hell…

We’ve all heard the rumors before; whether it was the incredulous reaction many of us had to the notion of Nicolas Cage portraying, ‘The Man of Steel’ in Tim Burton’s (ill-fated) Superman Lives or the anticipation of finally seeing...
