Catching up on reading

The Black Swan - The Impact of the Highly Improbable - Nassim Nicholas Taleb

The history of India after Gandhi - Ramachandra Guha

I like reading history usually and am looking forward to the last book. Any suggestions from people out there of other books that are must reads?


  1. Am a big history buff myself & the last book sounds great! Let us have a review when done!

    I suggest Shantaram (if you've not read it already), it's based on a true story and set in Bombay so is twice the fun for someone from our city.
