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.

The amazing story of how a handful of Special Forces and CIA operators teamed with the Northern Alliance and helped bring down the Taliban.
he paperback has been new material on the 2008 financial crisis, making this worth a re-read, even if you?ve already done the hardback.
Interesting volume on how George Washington was not just first in the hearts of his countrymen, but also of his country's early artists, whose portraits of him both drew attention to their skill.
Science just before the hinge point where it ceased to be dominated by solitary (and often self-trained) idealists and romantics.
