July’s Book: The Singularity Is Near

The genius.The author outlines the concepts behind his take on the future.This month’s Book Club read is a little on the hefty side (only 670 pages) and is a major mind bender to be considered a fun beach read. Well, that’s not entirely true. The Singularity Is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology by Ray Kurzweil could be considered a fun beach read---- for Sheldon Cooper.

This book is intense, and even in the audiobook version it could result in serious sun burns.

Jim Roger's Adventure Capitalist. So we’ve tackled the Nazis, Keynes' defunct economy, and George Orwell’s Animal Farm. Now let’s add a little fun to the Book Club.

Jim Rogers is known as the American Investor, for good reason. This guy is to investing as Colonel Sanders is to chicken. Sure, sure, he partnered with the Spooky Dude George Soros back in the day to launch the Quantum Fund, but hey, we all make mistakes.
