thunderbolt wrote: Just bought and am reading a book called "Corpus Juris Humorous" which isn't so much a work of authorship, but a collection of reported appellate court rulings which, mostly because of the absurdity of the subjects or  the issues presented by 'esteemed' counsel, are inherently funny.   May be a vanity press thing, but I find myself laughing regularly.

I don't read many legal books, but a number of years back I read "The Smoking Gun: Day by Day Through a Shocking Murder Trial with Gerry Spence" and thought it was excellent.

100 pages into "The Art of Fielding", a baseball novel by first-time author Chad Harbach that wound up on the best-seller list in 2011.  I have mixed feelings on it so far but it's worth checking out.

Recently finished Jose Canseco's two books. He seemed to repeat himself often, but I still enjoyed the books.
Was at the Jays game on Saturday and there were a bunch of homers. My daughter asked me if anyone hit one out of the stadium (LOL) but I showed her where Jose hit one in the top deck when he was with the A's.

I was at the KC library last week and wandered over to the sports section where they have some wrestling and boxing books. Borrowed the Road Warriors book by Laurinaitis. I'm about 140 pages in. It's not great/ not terrible. Some interesting stories so far about Georgia and the AWA. Just about to start on their move to Crockett.

Reading Kafka's "The Trial" right now.  Just picked it up on a whim, I had never read anything of his except for "The Metamorphosis" of course.  I like this better.

Just finished reading Anvil's biography, which is very similar to their excellent documentary. Many road stories and names dropped. Quick, fun read.

Currently about halfway thru "I Heard You Paint Houses" which is based on the story of Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran, who was involved with Jimmy Hoffa and the Teamsters. Excellent book so far. I read online that supposedly Deniro and Scorsese will be bringing this to the big screen, which would be amazing.

Just finished Dave Mustaine's autobiography (good read, doesn't come off nearly as crazy as I thought he would) and I also am reading "Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter" now.

Just read The Life And Times of Muhammad Ali by Thomas Hauser for the second time. It's a better read the second time than the first and it was a great read the first time.

Just finished "Disease-Proof Your Child" by Joel Furman.

 

Truly an excellent book. It shows jaw-dropping stats on many ailment that afflict the general population today, especially our children. It truly pushed fruits and veggies with every meal.

 

He has another book which I'll soon read called Eat To Live. Unlike the Fatkins diet, people lose weight, keep it off, and remain healthy.

Just started "The Gods of Gotham", a novel based in NY in the 1840s using the Great Fire of 1845 and the Irish Potato Famine as a backdrop for a story about the formation of the NYPD and a rookie cop.  Pretty good read so far.
