A couple of books!

February 25, 2019

Kingdom of the blind is the most recent from Louise Penny. Louise Penny does not disappoint — as usual. However, having read the other books in the series, some of the surprises (about Amelia for example) was not a surprise for me at all!

Gene machine by Venki Ramakrishnan is a great read — especially, for early stage researchers and PhD students. It is a book that I have been enthusiastically recommending to colleagues and friends, and, will probably go back to re-read at some point. Strongly recommended!

A few recent reads

February 13, 2019

The order of time by Carlos Rovelli is a must-read. I bought it since it made to the top 10 of the Physics World book list. I am glad I did. Thoroughly enjoyed — it is technical (physics), poetic and philosophical at the same time. Strongly recommended.

Achuvai Perinum by Arunn Narasimhan; this is the first fiction of his I read; enjoyed it.

An Ordinary Man’s Guide to Radicalism: Growing Up Muslim in India by Neyaz Farooquee is a good read too!
