 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.
