This seems like the best thread in which to note the passing of author Jerry Pournelle, who died yesterday in his sleep.  Probably best known for coauthoring, with Larry Niven, The Mote in God's Eye, blurbed by no less than Robert Heinlein as "possibly the greatest science fiction novel I have ever read," or words to that effect.  Met him briefly at Boskone a few years back and had him sign my copy of the aforementioned book.

"A Generations of Sociopaths (How the Baby Boomers Betrayed America)" - Bruce Cannon Gibney (http://www.brucegibney.com).

About halfway through - after that, I'll switch back to fiction.

THE SCIENCE OF JAMES BOND

A fun and engaging book (two-thirds of the way through, I am) which examines how realistic the science is in Bond. Some of it is, some of it isn't. Jaws, for example, could not have possibly had the strength, even with metal teeth, to bite that cable car wire.
