Finished with Guns, Germs & Steel

Finally got to finish reading Jared Diamond's Guns, Germs & Steel. It was a gift from a nephew who returned from a training in the US. Great book. Feels like an update on the Ascent of Man by Jacob Bronowski.

Now if I could only get my hands on Richard Dawkin's The Selfish Gene, I'll be very satisfied for the rest of the year. I wish they'll have eBay soon in the Pinas. And we can order books but pay in pesos.

Meantime I am working through the Great Unraveling by Paul Krugman. This is a collection of his columns. Dubya is no different from Erap after all. I got this at a bargain sale at the National Book Store.

I can't afford brand new books :-(
