I started it years ago, and never finished it, but I am going to try listening to it, as I do with so many books these days. Thank you for reminding me of the book.

Another writer I enjoy, although his work takes me much longer to absorb than Sacks, is Antonio Damasio. He is a lot more science than story, but his writing is so eloquent that it is never dry or sloggish.

I have become a neuroscience junkie.

I didn't know he had died!

If you like science writing for non-scientist readers, I have one for you.

Obviously many have heard of "A Brief History of Time" by Stephen Hawking. It's an excellent book, and quite accessible to the lay reader. And since Peghey is a reader I wish to lay....

Another less known book is perhaps my favorite of all. Coming of Age in the Milky Way by Timothy Ferris, written in 1988. It's a little longer and the cutting-edge aspect of it is outdated, but it's an excellent read through the history of astronomy and physics. He was nominated for the Pulitzer prize for it.

Gratitude - Oliver Sacks.

I have always been a big fan, and this short, sweet book is his last, written during the last year or so of his life.

Lately I've just been reading a lot of political commentary. The right wing stuff is scary; the lib stuff is funny, but also scary in its own way. Like this:
