    Through Euclid's Window Leonard Mlodinow brilliantly and delightfully leads us on a journey through five revolutions in geometry, from the Greek concept of parallel lines to the latest notions of hyperspace. Here is an altogether new, refreshing, alternative history of math revealing how simple questions anyone might ask about space -- in the living room or in some other galaxy -- have been the hidden engine of the highest achievements in science and technology.

    Making Hyperbolic Geometry fun and interesting to the general reader deserves a great review. In the next edition replace "Jesuits" and "Franciscans" with "Benedictines" and give examples of (actual) modern geometrical reasoning in side boxes.

  • Plain, Honest Men: The Making of the American Constitution

    The Constitutional Convention affected nothing less than a revolution in the nature of the American government. Led by James Madison, a small cohort of delegates devised a plan that would radically alter the balance of power between state and national governments, and then sprung that idea on a largely unsuspecting convention.

    Where does Plain, Honest Men rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This audio-book easily rates among my top 5 listening experiences.


    What other book might you compare Plain, Honest Men to and why?

    I don't really have a non-fiction book to compare it to since it is a day by day account.


    Any additional comments?

    The experience of the Revolutionary War is obviously still fresh in the minds of the attendees and probably accounts for their difficulties with Executive Power.
