neato. keep at it buddy.

I'll try.

“What I really enjoyed is that it made it easy to see and understand the interconnectedness of all these scientific disciplines.”

Well put!
That’s exactly what I liked about that book. I’m always looking for books with this characteristic. When I was a kid in the seventies, I was especially fond of the Reference section of the library, laying out all these huge tomes of scholarly arcana (old school hyperlinking ftw).

For most of my 20s and 30s, I only read science books. Lately It’s been all historical stuff. Here are some recent faves that are available in audio book format:

The Outline of History by H. G. Wells

A Little History of Science by William F. Bynum

The Guns of August by Barbara W. Tuchman

The Frontiersman: A Narrative by Allan Eckert

Six Armies in Normandy by John Keegan

I'll def look into your suggestions, thanks!

I don't have the brain or interest right now to read any philosophical or scientific analyses :| One day though. Got a lot of character devel- I mean, personal growth to do in the meantime.
Seriously though, maybe one day I'll remember this post when I know enough to pick these books up and I'll read them.

Take your time, priorities!
