Recent Books — Planet of Adventure, Econometrics, History of the World in 100 Objects

Cleaning up the bookshelves while we are shut in…

  • Planet of Adventure by Jack Vance. If you like Burrough’s Mars books, then you will like this. I read the Burroughs books when I was very young, and they have not held up well, but I loved them as a kid. And I kind of love this tho again has not aged well.
  • Introduction to Econometrics by James H. Stock, Mark W. Watson. On my shelves for 16 years, not sure why. An average intro to regression analysis.
  • A History of the World in 100 Objects by Neil MacGregor. Much better than I anticipated, a very readable and visual walk thru the entire span of human history.
