The Year In Books

Apparently I finished nine books this year.  I started more like fifteen.  It was a funny year ...

The Kennedy Half Century: The Presidency, Assassination, and Lasting Legacy
of John F. Kennedy
, Larry Sabato

Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln,
Doris Kearns Goodwin

Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, Yuval Noah Harari

The Power Broker: Robert Moses and the Fall of New York, Robert A. Caro

One Nation Under Gods: A New American History, Peter Manseau

1453: The Holy War For Constantinople and the Clash of Islam and the West, Roger Crowley

A Bright Shining Lie: John Paul Vann and America in Vietnam, Neil Sheehan

Dissent: The History of an American Idea, Ralph Young

The Wright Brothers, David McCullough


  1. Some good ones there. Not sure if one stands out over the others. The Caro book took the longest. Maybe because it was 1162 pages ; )
