Library/ Anti-Library

  1. Hello Jos, It was great running into you last night in Barra de Navidad.

    Love your anti library. I have been stockpiling my books on my ipad for the trip. Suggestions are always great. I just read. Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. great read I had a hard time putting it down. Intense about American POW in WWII.

    Enjoy your ride.

    Against the Gods, the remarkable story of risk, by Peter L. Bernstein. It’s a history of mankind’s measurement of risk, from games of chance hundreds of years ago to modern financial instruments. One of my favorites.
