What Karl's reading

After three years preparing The Triumph of William McKinley by reading very little but books, letters, articles and newspapers from the Gilded Age, I’m trying to get back into my regular routine, which I’ll chronicle here with an occasional review of what I’ve read.

A wonderful volume on one of America?s more consequential and lesser-known presidents who was a mixture of Reagan vision and Carter micro-management.
Fascinating story of how Sir Issac Newton saved England?s currency and economy and ran to ground the nation?s most accomplished counterfeiter.
Rollicking, fast-paced, brilliant.
