Special thank you to the book recommenders; Michael Lynch, Alan Martinez, You?
Recommendations from Michael Lynch:
The Martian - Andy Weir
The story of a man stranded on Mars and must use his big brains to survive until a rescue mission can be orchestrated
Shop Class for Soulcraft - Mathew Crawford
A short read about the value of hands-on work.
Omnivore's Dilemma - Michael Polland
Great read for any foodies out there.
Project Hail Mary - Andy Weir
One of my recent favorites. A story of a long shot attempt to save the
world with a very exciting twist!
The Way I Heard It - Mike Rowe
Part memoir, part mystery. This is a collection of various stories, the
way it is remembered by Mike.
Artemis - Andy Weir
Another great story from Andy. Takes place on the moon and
addresses income inequality and opportunity.
Lord of the Rings Trilogy - J.R.R. Tolkien
The ultimate fantasy novels (in my opinion). Need I say more?
Recommendations by Alan Martinez:
The End of Everything (Astrophysically Speaking) - Katie Mack
For those interested in the theories of the end of the universe, this
book guides the reader through the current hypotheses such as the
Big Crunch, Big Rip, and more. Personally have not read this,
but have heard fantastic things!
Ignition! - John D. Clark
An informal history of liquid rocket propellants. This book is great if
you are interested in history, chemistry, or just rocket propulsion in
