Whatcha readin’ these days? I’m painfully slogging my way through Roger Penrose’s Road to Reality and cross refrencing websites and math texts to try to figure out what the heck he’s on about and getting caught back up on polar representations of complex variables in the complex plane, with the goal of truly understanding Euler’s Formula.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, here’s what our majoritorially popular misunderestimated philospher king is taking with him on a 5-week vacation: Newsday.com: Bush Salts His Summer With Eclectic Reading List.
(A colleague at work sent me a link to this article as an inside joke because I use Salt as the archetype for things we sell a lot of where I just can’t understand the appeal – we’ve sold around 200 copies of the audiobook on cassettes and CDs at $40-50 each, and it’s around a 15-hour listen. I gave up 3 or 4 tapes in.)
