Two good books

with one comment

I’ve already mentioned The Bush Tragedy, but now I’ve finished it. Fascinating view of the underlying psychological causes of what we see now. Not judgmental, and even showing some degree of empathy, the book explores how the character and character flaws of each of the major players created a perfect storm of ill-used power.

The other book is a brief autobiography, focusing mainly on his work in Iraq, of a Marine scout/sniper, Gunnery Sergeant Jack Coughlin: Shooter: The Autobiography of the Top-Ranked Marine Sniper. It’s technical and interesting and shows how Coughlin found a new role for the sniper in modern urban combat.

  1. A great book to read if you’re looking to connect with a book on a true story level, is Shades of Darkness, Shades of Grace.
    I connected with this book on many levels, one being it happened to me. It could happen again, and it could happen to anyone. This is what makes ‘Shades’ such a good book. I think the author did a great job on writing this book.
