Forum: Read a Good Book Recently?

Tell other Cal fans about it on this board!

Now that we're into the summer months until Cal Football's 2011 Fall Camp begins - a recommended good book to read will be welcome to many.

History, politics, research - and certainly good novels will all be of interest to readers of this website.

If you make a post here, you should briefly address these topics: the book's contents, the author's qualifications, and your critique of its quality. When possible, be brief & focused.

This is a totally open forum - so please at all times confine yourself to those topics - and be civil.
