What was the last book you read?

Commodore: A Company on the Edge 2nd Edition http://tinyurl.com/6bw4q79

Filled with first-hand accounts of ambition, greed, and inspired engineering, this history of the personal computer revolution takes readers inside the cutthroat world of Commodore. Before Apple, IBM, or Dell, Commodore was the first computer manufacturer to market its machines to the public, selling an estimated 22 million Commodore 64s. Those halcyon days were tumultuous, however, owing to the expectations and unsparing tactics of founder Jack Tramiel. Engineers and managers with the company between 1976 and 1994 share their memories of the groundbreaking moments, soaring business highs, and stunning employee turnover that came with being on top in the early days of the microcomputer industry. This updated second edition includes additional interviews and first-hand material from major Commodore figures like marketing guru Kit Spencer, chip designer Bill Mensch, and Commodore co-founder Manfred Kapp.

Yeah super geeky of me! but then that is me!
Thanks TheKhemist

Last book I read was Letters to a Law Student (Nicholas J. McBride).

Bit dull, but very useful for prospective law students - aimed at UK students, but equally as useful to other nations. Fun times...

Currently reading Kiss by Ted Dekker and Erin Healy. (Not as good as Dekker's other books, but still cool.)
Last book I read was BoneMan's Daughter by Ted Dekker. (Creepy and disturbing, but oh, so good.)
Next will probably Mocking Jay by Suzanne Collins. (Cannot wait!!)
