Books for Science Geeks, Foodies and History Buffs

Spread the Love

Knowledge comes from many sources, and one of the best ways to gain information is through reading. This year I’ve spent my time in the garden listening to audio books as I tend to my veggies, chickens, and goats. These books are at the top of my recommendations over the past year. They’ll make great reading for you, or as gifts for those you love.

How to Lie

with Statistics

From distorted graphs and biased samples to misleading averages, there are countless statistical dodges that lend cover to anyone with an ax to grind or a product to sell. Written in 1954 and reprinted with Bill Gates’s endorsement, Darrell Huff presents abundant examples and illustrations in this lively and engaging primer, clarifying the basic principles of statistics and explaining how they’re used to present information in honest and not-so-honest ways. You may learn something new about the polio vaccine too.

Sundown Towns

What do towns with names including words such as cape, green, springs and valley have in common? They’re probably “sundown towns” — that is, towns that threaten to lynch or harass unwanted groups (mostly blacks) who fail to leave before night falls. Sociologist and history professor, James T. Loewen, reveals the startling truth about segregation and eugenics that continue to plague the United States — especially in northern states — and is likely to expand in the Covid “vaccination” era.

Written in Bone

Forensic Anthropologist Sue Black takes us on a guided tour of the human skeleton, explaining how each person’s life history is revealed in their bones, which she calls “the last sentinels of our mortal life to bear witness to the way we lived it.” Her narrative follows the skeleton from the top of the skull to the small bones in the foot. Each step of the journey includes an explanation of the biology—how the bone is formed in a person’s development, how it changes as we age, the secrets it may hold. I highly recommend the audiobook, read by the author.

Caste: The Origins

of our Discontents

In this seminal work by Pulitzer Prize winning author Isabel Wilkerson, readers are guided through bone-chilling examples of racial bias in the United States by comparing and contrasting the experiences of black Americans to the Jews of WWII and India’s untouchable caste — the Dalits — both past and present. Since the arrival of Europeans on the North American continent, eugenics — the faux science that deems certain groups to be inferior to others on the basis of traits such as color, race, gender, national origin etc — has been at the heart of US policies and society at large.

As gene therapies and compliance passports are being distributed across the globe, one only need substitute the word “unvaccinated” for the words, “black”, “Dalit”, or “Jewish” in this book to see how the fight against Covid has taken a perilous turn toward repeating and reinforcing what we thought was the past. Grab a box of tissues and read because ignorance is not bliss.

Life in the

Fasting Lane

Dr. Fung, Ramos, and Mayer take the reader by the hand and walk them through the basics of a fasting lifestyle—from the science behind fasting as a health and weight loss strategy to the real-life choices and dilemmas people commonly encounter. While Dr. Fung and Ramos explain the fundamentals of fasting and offer a customizable approach, Mayer shares her in-the-trenches perspective and hard-won knowledge as a success story who turned her life around with fasting.

Acquired Tastes

A celebration of life’s extravagances. It explores an aspect of human nature that, although dormant in hard economic times, is capable of erupting with the hint of good fortune and the drop of a credit card. It samples the luxuries of Havana cigars, Parisian hotels, bespoke London tailoring, and handmade shoes; discusses the proper color for a stretch limousine; and weighs the cost versus the pleasure of keeping a mistress. The audiobook is highly recommended and will leave you in stitches.

The Real

Anthony Fauci

In perhaps the most widely anticipated book for health professionals this year, attorney Robert F Kennedy, Jr. uses over 2000 citations to trace NIAID’s director Anthony Fauci’s rise to prominence over the past 50 years. Decades-old internal memos and books written about the failure to bring a safe and effective AIDS vaccine over the past 40 years in favor of a pet drug that has killed hundreds of thousands of members of the gay community under his watch reveal the mob-like nature of allopathic medicine in the United States. This is a must read for anyone interested in making an informed decision about what goes in their body. You can read my full review of The Real Anthony Fouci book here.

  1. I love these emails. I’m going to get a few of these books and I already have the book about Fauci. It’s unreal! I think we are going to get a wok (from another of your emails). We’ve never had one. These are valuable emails.
    Thank you

    1. Thanks for saying so. I don’t post often, but when I do, it comes from the heart. I don’t have time to recommend things with inflated prices or don’t help people reach their goals.
