May Reading

Books for my May reading have been ordered. Currently, I am finishing up The Quest by Daniel Yergin. It's a look at energy policy. He also wrote The Prize, a history of oil. I hope to write a review when I am finished. I am excited to have my next three books lined up for this month’s reading. First, the latest Robert Caro book on Lyndon Johnson is being released today. Passage of Power is Caro’s fourth volume in the series on the president. Master of the Senate, the third in the series, was a phenomenal read. I am looking forward to Passage of Power. The second book on my May list is Private Empire by Steve Coll. I read and enjoyed Coll’s previous book, Ghost Wars, about Afghanistan. Private Empire is about ExxonMobil. I read a New Yorker article Coll wrote about ExxonMobile and the Republican party and I want the book about this company. The last book for this month’s reading is Timothy Noah’s book entitled The Great Divergence: America’s Growing Inequality Crisis and What We Can Do About It. I will let you know what I think of these three books.
