Finally finished 'Darwin's Dangerous Idea' by Daniel C. Dennett. Brilliant first two thirds, but the last third is a killer, and took me weeks. Philosophy is very heavy stuff. If you have even the remotest interest in evolution, then you must read this book.

Diamond's book is on my 'to buy' list, but it will have a while, I'm afraid.

Just moved on to 'Tyranolopis' by A. E. van Vogt, which is just another of his pot-boilers. I need the light relief.

Oh, and Qweeg, :.

Currently reading: 'Gödel, Escher, Bach: an Eternal Golden Braid' by Douglas R. Hofstadter.
Synopsis: Towards a definition of consciousness from mathematics and logic.
