1.) In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Larson - This is a book about the US Ambassador to Germany in 1933/34. Larson is a great writer, and the book was a very quick read. I recommend this book highly. 2.) The I Chong by Tommy Chong - I am really sorry that I wasted time reading this book. It's the story of Tommy Chongs problems with the Feds. He makes going to Prison sound really awesome. 3.) Eisenhower: 1956 by David Nichols - This was another really good book. It focuses primarily on Eisenhowers foreign policy, specifically the Suez Canal incident of 1956. Highly recommended. 4.) 500 Days by Kurt Eichnwald - Best book that I have read in a long time. This is a focus on the 500 days that followed the 9/11 attacks, and how this government responded. Highest recommendation.
