I am currently reading "My stroke of insight" by a woman who had a stroke like me and published a book about the before the stroke and 10 year process of recovery! The book is by Jill Boulte Taylor, Ph.D.
General Jimmy Doolittle's autobiography, "I Could Never Be So Lucky Again" (copyright 1991). Fascinating account from the leader of the gang of Tokyo Raiders during WWII, and one of the generals who sent bombers over Europe to liberate the free countries from the Nazi regimen. He was an amazing pilot with incredible stories.
He flew over the 6000 ships gathered off the beaches on Normandy before gunfire started on D-Day. Can you imagine having a view of that? Incredible!
I highly recommend it, probably should be required high school reading so youth know what happened in WWII.

I just finished "Ameritopia" and what a great book on the history of the Utopian Philosophy startng with Plato and others such as Hobbs (Leviathian), John Locke Thomas Moore's Utopia, Marx and Lenin, Charles Montesquieu ( who had enormous positive impact on our founders) and Alexis de Tocqueville. their views are presented bytheir own words as opposed to pure opinion of what they wrote.
