    Okay, not a book, but David Barton lists a plethora of books in his interview. This guy really is a wealth of knowledge on the Founding Fathers and their writings.

    "Last Stand of Fox Company". Truly amazing true story from the Korean War.

    "Undaunted Courage" (Stephen Ambrose) - In their day, Lewis and Clark were the equivalent of astronauts. They explored and mapped a huge expanse, documented plants, animals, and Indian tribes, and lived to tell the world. They opened the west with little more than raw courage.

    Someone recommended “Life after Google” by George Gilder.
    It’s about how all your information is used on the Internet and how unsecure it is today. (Millions of accounts hacked on websites of banks, retailers, etc). And how big data companies like Google, Facebook, Amazon, etc are making billions selling your info to advertisers and how they use artificial intelligence to entice you to other sites. (and thats why their services are “free”).

    Goes into a lot of detail about how bitchain technology would allow you to control all your information and who you want to transact with, while securing your critical data.

    The drivers of bitchain technology are cryptocurrency entrepenuers, and while there is a lot of history behind how they started and the technological improvements they’ve made, ihe doesn’t really advocate cryptocurrencies. It’s the bitchain technology that can be developed to make your information safer and under your control and how that would virtually change the internet as we know it today.

    Honestly, it’s a tough read at times and took me a while to get through all the detailed chapters on data architecture and development of next generation microchip processors, but I got the message..

    I just started reading Alone At Dawn.

    It's the story of MOH recipient John Chapman and I like it so far.
