Currently reading The Two-Ocean War by Samuel Eliot Morison (a man who does not waste consonants ;-) )

Found a copy of it at the local county library.

Yes folks I've read it and it's full of good advice, it and Meditations by Marcus Aurelius travelled with me in my travels.



Both videos are worth a watch and both books are worth a read.

And in case someone thinks that this was made up, here is the link to the original Tweet, which was still up when I posted this:

Work Done for Hire (2014) by Joe Haldeman. Excellent novel.
