    Nawh, it's a short book, 140 pages. Footnotes extend it to 160 pages, if you read that part. You could probably knock it off while you are resting.

            • "Russian Thinkers" by Isaiah Berlin for a course in Russian History. It is amazingly well written and talks about the rise of the Russian intelligentsia in the crucial decade of 1838-1848, which set in the train the events that would lead to the Revolution of 1917.

                      And yes I know all about Mr Piper and the controversies surrounding him before anyone comments.

                              • I've just started reading 'Cochrane - Britannia's Sea Wolf' by Donald Thomas. It's excellent, there are more incredible (but factual), exploits in it, and of a greater magnitude than in any CS Forester or Patrick O'Brian novel!
