    Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes and Politics by Charles Krauthammer.

    I especially appreciate his love of border collies.

    @SD45T-2 "Krauthammer" may be the best name I've ever heard.

    It sounds much less cool when you know what 'Kraut' actually means: https://www.google.de/search?q=kraut...ed=0CAYQ_AUoAQ

    Do his past controversies give you any pause?

    Cured: How the Berlin Patients Defeated HIV and Forever Changed Medical Science by Nathalia Holt

    Encircling its nose lay a tiny clear plastic mask, providing the mouse with isoflurane, a powerful anesthetic capable of keeping the animal motionless while I performed the risky procedure. But the problem was, the animal was not motionless, at least not entirely. Just as I leaned in to inject it with a highly concentrated, lab-adapted aggressive strain of HIV, the mouse jerked. In that moment, the unthinkable happened: I accidentally poked my finger with the needle.
    Oops.
    If bees did go extinct, we could always hire people to dress up as bees and pollinate flowers with tiny feather dusters. Sure it'd be more expensive, but there are also millions of idle teens.

    Saw this at a used bookstore, and I almost bought it. Because LOOK AT IT.

    I love that there's a person on this planet named R. Leo Sprinkle.

    Hitler and Stalin: Parallel Lives

    Battleaxe (Axis trilogy) - Goddamn is this brutal, I'm only in the first few chapters though.
    We're a lukewarm people for all our feast days and hard work.
    Not much touches us, but we long to be touched. We lie awake
    at night willing the darkness to part and show us a vision. Our
    children frighten us in their intimacy, but we make sure they
    grow up like us. Lukewarm like us

    Just finished The Lost City of Z by David Grann. Between reading that book and watching too many episodes of River Monsters, I can safely say that I will not be visiting the Amazon EVER.

    Also, I just found out that Percy Harrison Fawcett, the seemingly indestructible explorer who mysteriously vanished while searching for this lost city, will be portrayed in an upcoming film by none other than Benedict Cumberbatch. Because the Cumberbatch is everywhere.
