    The Breaking of Ezra Riley by John L. Moore: Loved it and related to the themes and characters.
    Crazy About You by Randy Attwood. Fun, witty, coming of age tale in an insane asylum town near where I grew up.
    Lions of the West by Robert Morgan: I enjoyed it until I understood Morgan is some shallow eastern elitist that took a dim view of some real heroes and painted them in a poor light based on questionable research
    Boone, A Biography by Robert Morgan: Ditto
    Truman by David McCullough: I enjoyed every minute of this painful drugging through recent history
    1776 by David McCullough: Loved it! Want more of that important period!
    John Adams by David McCullough: Loved it!
    The History of the World in Six Glasses by Tom Standage: Light, approachable and full of great anecdotes to amaze and enthrall even the most dead cocktail party professional
    Guns, Germs and Steel by Jared Diamond: Ditto
    The Civil War by Shelby Foote: The best ever!
    The Internal Revenue Code by Congress: A light-hearted frolic through the ages of revenue and deductions
    The Regulations of the Internal Revenue Code by the Treasury Department: Astoundingly griping but boring details and examples of arcane statutes throughout
    The History of Taxation by KPMG LLP

    and.........

    I am now working through Alexander Hamilton by Chertow, a most excellent read.

    I'll add some more later.

    I've got a 100 years worth of lives to read about before I can catch up with Harry T.
    If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.
