As with last year, we are fortunate to have the 2015 book reviews of Mr. Mike Phipps. For reference, among Mike's books, I have read the following within recent memory:
Why Did the Chicken Cross the World?
The Courtier and the Heretic (not nearly as good as Wittgenstein's Poker, in my opinion)
American Lion (a good book; another view of Andrew Jackson is in Daniel Walker Howe's Pulitzer-winning What Hath God Wrought)
Rust (one of my favorites of 2015)
Is That a Fish In Your Ear? (I liked this much more than Mike did)
The Lions of Al-Rassan
The Wright Brothers (another of my favorites of 2015)
Thinking, Fast and Slow
The Shepherd's Crown
The Road Not Taken
The Violinist's Thumb
How I Killed Pluto and Why It Had It Coming
Mike's taste and mine are often similar but not identical. Read and ponder!
