Nicola Tesla fascinates me. How is that book? And your Shadow Divers book also sounds interesting. The Spencer book, on the other hand... He's a little too controversial for my tastes.
I am embarking on a wine tasting class, so maybe one day I can pick your brains about it. At the moment I know nothing, really, except that I like Sauternes (with a good Roquefort) and Gewurztraminer (with some nice Limburger).
