Even though I have been away from the Ivory Tower for six years now, there are still some parts of it that I just can’t shake off. One thing that I would have shuddered about 6 years ago is that I seem to have developed a great love of bibliographies. When I read a book I really enjoy these days, I want to try to figure out how the author or authors came to that state of being. I want to know what molded them and what might have been on their minds as these ideas came into their heads.
I just finished Trust Agents. It is peppered with book references, and I thought it would be really interesting not just to look at the books that are mentioned by name but also to read many of them. I’ll probably not read Polgar’s Chess book, but otherwise…:)
I got permission to put out this list from the authors. Think I got everything. Hope it’s useful!
