Last week I asked him what he was reading. His reply:
I am reading the last Harry Potter. I just finished Walter Isaacson's Einstein and Jared Diamond's Guns, Germs and Steel.Evan Thomas has written seven books, including Sea of Thunder: Four Commanders and the Last Great Naval Campaign 1941-1945, The Very Best Men: The Daring Early Years of the CIA, and John Paul Jones: Sailor, Hero, Father of the American Navy.
My favorite fiction this summer was Claire Massoud's The Emperor's Children.
