OK, so, two books I've read recently:
1. "Behave" by Robert Sapolsky: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2017/ ... sky-review
2. "The Gene" by Siddhartha Mukherjee: https://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/15/book ... erjee.html which component speakers 6.5

And another I may attempt to actually finally finish again soon (for the umpteenth time as my copy runs to 1,049 pages !):
3. "The Road to Reality" by Roger Penrose: https://www.nytimes.com/2005/02/27/book ... -time.html

I am reading a book of car grooming

For a long time I wanted to read "Shantaram" by Australian writer Gregory David Roberts, I still could not get my hands on this book, then there was a lot of work, then I simply forgot about it. I will not specifically retell the entire book, but I will say one thing that the basis for the book was the events of the author's own life, which were not at all easy for him. The book is very interesting, read in one breath, wherewith each page you worry, trying to find a way out of all difficult situations. I advise! ;)
Oh, will we ever be set free?
