    Simon Singh offers fascinating new insights into the celebrated television series The Simpsons: That the show drip-feeds morsels of number theory into the minds of its viewers - indeed, that there are so many mathematical references in the show, and in its sister program, Futurama, that they could form the basis of an entire university course.

    "Enjoyable, but..."

    Would you try another book from Simon Singh and/or William Neenan?

    Yes I think he presents the information in a easily consumed manner. Although it would have been much more enjoyable if I was able to find the often referenced "downloadable pdf"

    Story

    In Jawbreaker, Gary Berntsen, until recently one of the CIA's most decorated officers, comes out from under cover for the first time to describe his no-holds-barred pursuit of Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda.

    Joshua says: "A great read (err - Listen)"
    "Fasinating"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book, although it would of been so much better if there had been less censorship by the CIA. The frustration of about the censorship was only heightened because there was information removed that I had already heard in other books or had already been published in the media.
