The "Tipping Point" or "Blink" by Malcolm Gladwell. He's a science writer. Great stuff. One of my favorite sci-fi boks is Arthur C. Clarke's "2001: A Space Odyssey". Jeff Shaara writes historical fiction and "Rise to Rebellion" and "Glorious Cause" should fit the founding fathers bill.

Read The Tipping Point and was very close to picking up Blink but I may wait for it to come out in paperback--if only to match my paperback Tipping Point.

I'll look into the Shaara stuff.

Thanks, C.

UPDATE:

I had Shaara's The Last Full Measure in my hand--I didn't realize it was a sequel to his old man's Killer Angels which I read in college--but it got bumped because I caved in and bought Stephenson's Quicksilver.

Sorry guy, I really wanted to get it but I'm weak.

I also picked up Rick Brookheiser's Hamilton bio, OSC's Pastwatch: The Redemption of Christopher Columbus, and What Went Wrong? by the kingdaddy of ME scholars, Bernard Lewis. So I think I covered my criteria.

Uh, I'd check with Jack. His last two suggestions morphed (via order-padding and getting, say, all of Richard Dooling's books) into a ten-book backlog for me.

I've gotten it down to 5, and I'm taking two or three of them to San Diego tomorrow, in hopes of again being in position to allow myself to buy more.

One of my favorites is the Black Company series by Glen Cook...especially the first three.
