    I'm reading "A Bad Case of Capitalism" by Shiraz Balolia, who founded Grizzly Machine Tools. Excellent read.

    Code Talker by Chester Nez, one of the original 29 of WW2. The Navajo code is the only spoken military code never to have been deciphered by the enemy.

    The Trial by Franz Kafka. It's just as relevant today as it was a hundred years ago.

    The Yom Kippur War by Abraham Rabinovich. It reads and thrills like a novel. The story is absolutely incredible. We see all the key leaders involved. On the Israeli side: Meir, Dyan, Elazar, Gonen, Peled, Bar-Lev, Sharon, Barak. And on the Egyptian side: Sadat, Mubarak, Ali, Shazly, Al-Gammasy. America: Kissinger, Nixon. USSR: Kosygin, Dobrynin, Brezhnev.

    The detailed account shows the shifting sands of diplomacy (no pun intended) as Sadat responded to peace overtures by Kissinger during the battles, and how the seeds of the Camp David Peace Accords in 1979 were sown as an output from the war.

    You can also see how Hafez al-Assad, the now-deceased father of the current dictator, was never going to seek peace with Israel...as a minority Alawite surrounded in his own country by Sunni who wanted him dead, he needed a common enemy to keep him in power (Israel).

    The sad part is how many lives were lost on both sides, in order to achieve peace. Heartbreaking, devastating.
