If you like math even a little this is one of a few really good books to read. The story revolves around the solving of “Fermat’s Last Theorem” a seemingly simple problem similar to the Pythagorean theorem that has baffled mathematicians for hundreds of years. The book follows Andrew Wiles who relentlessly pursues the answer to this 350 year old problem. This book gripped me like a suspense novel, a combination of great writing and an even better story.

I’ll never forget this book, I read it years ago but think of it often. Richard Feynman was not only a famous physicist but also had a great sense of humor and was deeply curious. He could look at things on a different level than most and his knowledge was not only deep but wide. His predictions of the future are well documented as are his many accomplishments. He tells story’s about his early day’s when he had to trick a librarian to take out a calculus book, they thought he was to young for the book, I believe he was 12 at the time. This is a good book for a young person, or young at heart person interested in math and or science, five out of five stars!

My wife really enjoyed this one. The FBI is being blackmailed by a rogue group. When an agent disappears with cash, the FBI enlists the help of Steve Vail a former agent turned bricklayer. This thriller has a lot of twists and turns and is a quick read, enjoy.

Stephen King’s latest novel is a compilation of short stories which will keep you on the edge of your seat, much like this post, ha ha. The first story tells the tale of what one man will do to to keep his property, was it worth it? You’ll have to read to find out, no spoilers here. Each story gets better than the next, leaving you wishing for more at the end. Normally I’m not a big fan of his short stories but these were great. Stephen King books are usually good books to read even if you misspell Steven King so please excuse the typo.

Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain is really a good book to read. This is book can get a little technical in its description of the hard science behind many of the studies that are referenced, but to me this detail was welcome. The benefits of exercise are proven through real world examples and scientific studies. You’ll find out how one U.S. high school beat many of the Asian country’s test scores in math through a school wide intensive exercise program. Personally I’ve never felt better than when I did the P90X exercise program which is very intense, and about an hour a day. Psychiatrist John J. Ratey, MD does discuss the benefits of light and moderate aerobic workouts as well. This book will motivate you by showing you that exercise benefits are not only physical but mental.

This is the funniest book I ever read. I laughed out loud many times when I read it, I’ve bought this book at least 6 times and given it out. People seem to love this book or hate it. The reviews on Amazon are overwhelmingly positive but my father and older sister gave me funny looks when I asked what they thought. My younger sister loved it also and I’m not sure how you couldn’t think this book is funny but I guess it is possible. Please let me know if you liked this one or not on twitter or in the comments. Thanks
