Good for you for reading that one. She makes critical race theory palatable and understandable for the masses.  For counterpoint, I would suggest Eric Lindsay. He is quite competent on the topic.

Close - I’ll be following it up with James Lindsay and Helen Pluckrose...

I have 3 on the go in the Music Room atm;

 

Rocket Ranch ties in alot of the "behind the scene" details other  history books skip over when talking about launch and mission control centers.

Titan II A History of a Cold War Missile Program

The problems encountered and resolved with contractor management, concurrent design, construction and maintanance are an increadable insight into a _massive_ and increadably technical engineering project. Wow :)

Ignition!

The first 2 chapters are chalk full of humour, but after that, dig your heels in for some chemistry. This book gives insight to all the liquid fueled rocket programs; Murcury, Gemini, Atlas, Titan I/II etc and how brutally hard these fuels were to engineer engines for. Read Titan II for stories :/

I just finished this one this morning. The good news - it’s an exceedingly easy read.  The bad news - where to begin...

 

First, I highly recommend you read this book - NOT because it’s content is of any value, but because it’s important to understand how you are viewed by the woke brigade, if you are Caucasian.  If you deny your racism, it’s because you’re racist - if you admit your racism, well... It’s the old “Have you stopped beating your wife yet” verbal trap.

 

An important “peek behind the curtain” of the radical movement sweeping the country - I’m glad I took the time to read it.

@EADG, That is QUITE the juxtaposition of topics between the first ones and the last!   :-k


Good for you!  Love the balance of tech and art!  =D=

I thought you said nonfiction?

Yea, I know... At the time it was released Cuomo was the darling of the left, and I toyed with reading it then.  However, I think it will be an intriguing read now, with all the new revelations unfolding. I seriously wonder if portions of this book may be used against him in future prosecutions....?

“Until the End of Time” by Brian Greene.  Book covering the time frame from the Big Bang till the end of time (and everything in between).  Actually listening to it on an App called “Overdrive” and checking it out of the library like a normal book.  This app is a pretty nice deal, download it, sign up, enter your library card number and have access to thousand of books.
