What I've read so far this week

I often intend to do mini-book reviews, but never quite get around to it. Here's what I read the last couple days:

Bob Novak's The Prince of Darkness and Bob Shrum's No Excuses. For Washington memoirs, both are abnormally honest. I liked Novak's slightly more, but was surprisingly charmed by both.

Steven Landsburg's More Sex is Safer Sex -- my political beliefs might be closer to Landsburg than Shrum or Novak, but I really didn't like this Freakonomics clone. He tried to hard to do be counter-intuitive, and occasionally bordered on the facile. At times provoking, the book wasn't bad, but it wasn't great. Read Tyler Cowen's book instead.
