Reading "The Longest Fight", about Joe Gans, the first black boxing champion of any kind, and Mark Twain's classic "The Innocents Abroad".

I just finished "The Disaster Artist", Greg Sestero's book about the making of "The Room" and his friendship with Tommy Wiseau. It's hilarious, and if you've ever seen the film I'd definitely recommend giving it a go.

Reading "I Ain't No Pig Farmer" Dean Silverstone's history of the Seattle territory. Co-written by Scott Teal. Really enjoying it.

Yea, I have been reading a lot of stuff like that.  Have read books in the last 3 months by John Bogle, Warren Buffett, a very old one by Benjamin Graham, Jim Cramer and about 6 others.  Have come to the conclusion that I should keep a healthy amounts in stock and bond index funds and go the opposite direction of everyone else with picks that hopefully will outperform.  Just bought KO.  Bought NLY in December near it's low.   Again, sticking mostly with low cost index funds though.  Have lightened up overall stock exposure because the PE ratio is higher than it's historical norm.

I have learned all of this from books over the last year.  Wish I had cared about this stuff 20 years ago.

I'm reading Henry Bushkin's Johnny Carson Bio right now. Very enjoyable so far.

I started it but they all come off so unlikeable to me I put it down and have no urge to pick it back up.

Oh they're absolutely horrible people, even for rock stars (except for Mick, he doesn't seem that bad), but I can't put the book down.  Too many crazy stories.  For likeability, Nikki's "Heroin Diaries" makes him come across a lot better.

John Corabi is actually the most likable guy in the book.  Man, do I feel sorry for him having to deal with that shitshow.

 Books that I have read since my last post.

 "Augie's Secrets: the Minneapolis mob and the king of the Hennepin strip" by Neal Karlen.   This book was more about the Jewish mob in Minneapolis during the 30's, 40's and 50's, than about Augie Ratner. As far as secrets? There were none.

 "Secret Partners: Big Tom Brown and the Barker Gang " by Tim Mahoney.  Nice book. Gave really good details.

 "Six Days of War" by Michael Oren. Good book. Really kept you up on what was going on behind the scenes.

 "The Yom Kippur War" by Abraham Rabinovich. This book dealt more with the fighting and didn't really mention much about what was going on behind the scenes till the last couple of chapters.

 "Great Martial Arts Movies: From Bruce Lee to Jackie Chan" by Richard Meyers. I liked this book.

 Graphic novel "The Immortal Iron Fist: The Seven Capital Cities of Heaven". If they ever make an Iron Fist movie, this is the story they should do.

 "Texas Longhorns Football History: A to Z"  By Richard Pennington. I was hoping for a lot more form this book. It only skims through the rich Longhorn history.

Reading "Heads in Beds: A Reckless Memoir of Hotels, Hustles, and So-Called Hospitality" by Jacob Tomsky.  Funny and occasionally frightening look at the hospitality business that will make you wonder if you ever want to stay in a hotel again.  Also some good tips though about how to get what you want, and the things that you can and can't fight.
