    The Third Chimpanzee: The Evolution and Future of the Human Animal by Jared Diamond.
    An interesting and well-written book about the development of Homo Sapiens and our relation to the other primates.
    The second chapter finally answers the question of why human testicles on average are larger than a gorilla's but smaller than a chimpanzee's.

    A Universe From Nothing by Lawrence M. Krausse.
    A well written but run-of-the-mill book about astrophysics and the theory of the Big Bang. It's interesting and gives some fresh perspective on what can be a pretty dry subject.
    Predictably, it contains nothing about testicles.

    The Art of Starving, by Sam J. Miller. A kid with an eating disorder who believes his hunger is giving him superpowers tries to find out why his sister has run away from home. An intense, but sensitive depiction of anorexia and mental illness that was difficult to read at times.

    The only Clavell I have ever read is King Rat, which I liked very much. I did see the Shogun miniseries tears ago, though.

    Finished Tiamat's Wrath by James S.A. Corey.

    Going to do a listen of the Hyperion series by Dan Simmons. I've read it several times and loved it but never done it via audiobook.

    I just discovered Nero Wolfe through the Sherlock tangent in TVtropes. Seems amusing, though I'll probably watch it since the 2000 series looks very well made.

    I recently finished Gulliver of Mars

    Its a bit dull tbh.

    I have read a book called "This Is Herman Cain!: My Journey to the White House". It is quite a fascinating autobiography. This is the black conservative man who once ran for the nation's highest office. Herman Cain offers the readers a helpful insight into his life, political views and business philosophy. He also gives an insightful explanation about how to become a successful businessman. He managed Burger King and ran a pizzeria chain. He was appointed Chair of Federal Reserve Bank Kansas City. Herman Cain is more presidential material than Barack Obama.
