Book Review: The Einstein Pursuit

As it turned out, Dial was more impressed than insulted.
An explosion in Stockholm claims the lives of an elite collection of scientists. Evidence suggests the blast was designed to eliminate all traces of their research. It's up to Interpol director Nick Dial to uncover the truth about the lab and the attack. When Dr. Mattias Sahlberg learns of the incident, he knows his life is at risk. He turns to the only men he can trust: ex-Special Forces operatives Jonathan Payne and David Jones. Together, they must save Sahlberg from the unknown forces that want him dead. As Dial's case intertwines with Sahlberg's past, Payne and Jones uncover hidden truths and secret agendas involving the world's greatest minds. But there are some who are desperate to keep such radical advances in the dark and will stop at nothing to have their way.

Book Review: Sita's Curse

It was a private joke.
Somewhere, behind closed doors, in her solitary world; Somewhere under the sheets with an inefficient lover; Somewhere, is a woman who will not be denied...Trapped for fifteen years in the stranglehold of a dead marriage and soulless household domesticity, the beautiful, full-bodied and passionate Meera Patel depends on her memories and her flights of fancy to soothe the aches that wrack her body; to quieten an unquenchable need. Until one cataclysmic day in Mumbai, when she finally breaks free...

Sita's curse is a bold, brazen and defiant tale of a middle-class Indian housewife's urgent need for love, respect, acceptance - and sexual fulfillment. In a series of incidents and coincidences the author has presented a tale that can be unanimously classified as Erotica. The backbone story line does not require even half of the length of this book that the often overused graphic descriptions has occupied. Although Sita's Curse has the language of Desire, the too vivid erotic elements is often repelling and at times the reader may be compelled to flip the pages to find and flow with the real story. Unfortunately, not for readers sharing my taste of reading.

Book Review: Sapiens A Brief History of Humankind

Understanding Human History in the millennia following the Agricultural Revolution boils down to a single question: how did humans organize themselves in mass-cooperation networks, when they lacked the biological instincts necessary to sustain such networks? The short answer is that humans created imagined orders and devised scripts. These two inventions filled the gaps left by our biological inheritance.

Fire gave us power. Gossip helped us cooperate. Agriculture made us hungry for more. Mythology maintained law and order. Money gave us something we can really trust. Contradictions created culture. Science made us deadly.

In this book running over four hundred pages, the author outlines the history of humankind as a species. Starting with the unremarkable faltering journey of ancestors of the sapiens species, the author moves on along the series of revolutions that shaped the humankind as we are. Written in easy English and fast narrative style, the book is interesting, eloquent and gripping. The title being a Brief History of Humankind is a misnomer though! Essentially, Sapiens is a informative summary of our journey as a species that has brought us here.
