I've been re-reading the first edition of Norman Friedman's US Destroyers: An Illustrated Design History this last week. Even though it's his first full-length book, it holds up remarkably well, even if the pre-Fletcher era is kind of rushed.



On a related note, I've been purchasing a lot more of my books off-Amazon because they don't seem to have much respect for their long-time customers any more. I was a Top 5000 reviewer there for a long time, but every time I write a new review for them, it gets buried at the bottom. Between that and having nine of my reviews unceremoniously deleted back in December, I feel like I'm just writing reviews for them out of tradition more than anything else.

just finishing rereading Blind Man's Bluff by Sherry Sontag. It gets better every time i read it.

started on Humane by Samuel Moyn but it is not very enjoyable. i do not recommend it. if you want more detail send me a PM.

as i put down Humane i will be starting The Afghanistan Papers by Craig Whitlock. i hope it is better than the previous book.
