Recommended Reads, 19th in a Quarterly Series

Stuff I've read lately that I'd recommend:

Colonel Roosevelt (Morris).  The long-awaited third in the TR trilogy.  Not nearly as fast-paced as his ascendance and presidency, but still captivating.

Vision of the Anointed (Sowell) and The Future and Its Enemies: The Growing Conflict Over Creativity, Enterprise, and Progress (Postrel).  I blogged about these two books late last year.

Try This: Traveling the Globe Without Leaving the Table (Freeman).  Delightful exploration into different cuisines.  You will be hungry and frisky after reading this.

The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life (Schroeder).  Another brilliant yet flawed man.  To use the book's central analogy, it's fascinating to see the snowball pick up snow over time.
