Herding Cats

My lovely wife, Debra, introduced me to this. It is the five books that I've read in the last 3 years that I think others MUST read. What this has to do with herding cats, however, I'm not sure. The books are:
1. The ancestor's tale by Richard Dawkins - absolutely the best book ever written
2. On the origin of species by Charlie Darwin - the most important book ever written
3. Why zebras don't get ulcers by Robert Sapolsky - a great book on why stress kills and how and why to stop worrying and be happy
4. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling - The best in a wonderful series
5. The lonely silver rain by John D. McDonald - the final book in another wonderful, but very different, series.

Yes! Someone else thinks Goblet of Fire is the best book in the series! People have given me weird looks for that before :P

I've been meaning to read The Ancestor's Tale for a while. Here's my excuse!

I love the HP series too, but I would be hard pressed to pick a favorite. :)

This may be the impetus I need to finally dive into The Ancestor's Tale. But if it turns out to be above my head, you know I'm going to feel like a moron, don't you?
