Some Administrative Notes From Mike

While it's ok to simply post the title of the book you are reading, it's better if you can jot down a few words about what you liked or disliked about it. Maybe even made a recommendation of Read It or Pass to the community here based on your overall impression.

In the end a list of book titles is not nearly as useful as some insight into the strengths and weaknesses of each book.

Just like at EndEx, your misery is only validated if you complete an AAR. :warstory:



So what are you army.ca forum addicts reading? Fiction or non fiction. Sorry boys Penthouse Letters don't count :D

I just finished Starship Troopers for the umpteenth time.

Started to reread War and Peace again. I don't know why I like it. The style of writing is like licking paint on walls.

As usual, I'm reading the Army.ca Forum, and depending what thread I'm in, it could be Fact (army.ca subscribers thread) or utter Fiction (Political thread) ;)

"Fire and Sword in the Sudan" by Col R. (Rudolph) Slatin Pasha

Slatin was an Austrian officer and was seconded as the Egyptian governor of Darfur province in the late 1870s.  He was captured in the Mahdi's revolt and didn't escape until 1895.  The book was written shortly after his return to Europe.  Very interesting to read what's changed and (especially) what hasn't.

"AI Game Engine Programming" , by Brian Schwab.   Nice methods and well written.

"Salt", SF novel by Adam Roberts. One of the better science fiction writers to appear in the past few years.

Recently finished reading "An Army at Dawn", by Rick Atkinson. Very nice read. Wish I had more time for these kind of books.

"Canada's Army" by JL Granatstein

"Don't Eat this book" by Morgan Spurlock. So far, overly dependant on statistics without details to explain what he is trying to prove.
