Anyway, time to put it down and read Jane Mayer's The Dark Side instead. I've been putting it off because I know it's going to be wildly depressing, but hey — I'm a professional, right? This is what you guys pay me for. So I guess I better buckle down and read it.
And as long as I'm on the subject of books, a few days ago I finished Brendan Koerner's Now The Hell Will Start, a pretty good book that suffers from a bad title (though, of course, YMMV on whether the title grabs you). Once you get past the title and a clunky first few pages, though, it's a helluva good read about how black soldiers were treated during WWII and what one of them did about it. Recommended.
