“Live always in the best company when you read.”
Sydney Smith, author (1771-1845)

Foreword: As noted elsewhere, this list reflects only those books not classified as Literature, Philosophy or Science (my areas of primary interest) and which were read or re-read within the past decade and which I deem exceptionally good or unusually bad (thus compelling a warning). As you will see, when I depart from literature, philosophy and science, I tend to read financial-related or autobiographical books.
