My initial reading goal for 2015 is 70 books, up a bit from my lower reading level of last year. 2014 was the second year since 2003 that I read less than 100 books in the year.  Much of my reading and writing time is now going into genealogy research. When I post a review on Amazon or GoodReads, or on this site, I will link to it in this list.

Gordon, Jon.  The Energy Bus:  10 Rules to Fuel Your Life, Work, and Team with Positive Energy.  Hoboken, NJ:  John Wiley & Sons, 2007.  172p.  (This is written as an analogy.  There are some good individual suggestions, and maybe the rules as a set.  But I found that I varied between boredom and irritation with the analogical approach.  I do not find analogies as a rule an efficient or productive way to gain new insights or guidelines, but this was worse than usual.  I felt like I was having to wade through a lot of fluff with this book.  And in general the content and suggestions are very basic and common sense, and seem redundant.  However, the chart of the 10 rules at the end would be good to have taped up in your office for a reference.  It would have been good to see the whole list at the start of the book.  Doling them out one at a time through the wandering analogy made it hard to concentrate and see where we were going with this.  See this book with my review on Amazon.  Read my review of this book on GoodReads.)  Read 31 December - 2 January 2015.  Business (Personal Development)

Greenfield, Jeff.  Then Everything Changed:  Stunning Alternate Histories of American Politics:  JFK, RFK, Carter, Ford, Reagan.  NY:  G P Putnam's Sons, 2011.  434p.  (This is an excellent, well-written, even riveting, analysis of American political history in the last half of the 20th century.  This work represents a new, productive and insightful approach to history, called Alternate History.  The approach is to review a key event or factor and develop what might have happened if one important event had turned out differently.  Greenfield analyzes these Presidencies this way.  What if John F Kennedy had been assassinated after his election, but before he was inaugurated?  How would the next three years have unfolded?  How would the Cuban crisis and the US-Soviet confrontation have been affected?  How would Johnson's presidency been different if he had taken over in January 1961, instead on 1963.  This book analyzes the Presidencies of the period from JFK through Reagan using this format in three key story focuses.  Greenfield provides excellent background on the people and events involved.  You will learn a lot and gain deep insights into the forces behind American politics and culture over the last 50 years.  This is a very forceful way to analyze the forces that affect us today.  Read my review of this book on GoodReads.)  Bought 25 July 2014 in Arlington, Texas.  Read 4-11 February 2015.  American Politics and Culture (Fiction)

Harrison, Glynn.  Ego Trip:  Rediscovering Grace in a Culture of Self-Esteem.  Grand Rapids:  Zondervan, 2010.  204p.  (This is an excellent review of the history of the Self-Esteem movement in recent modern social history.  Harrison writes from a British perspective with great awareness and experience in the United States.  Providing many examples in educational events and trends in both societies, he summarizes the ideas and the early philosophies involved.  Harrison profiles many clinical studies that show that focus on building self-esteem has actually backfired and created a greater problem.  He describes the logical error of confusing correlation with causation.  This error of logic ignored the social behavior involved, resulting in a whole cultural ethos of irresponsible self-indulgence and psychic egotism that produced even greater disappointment due to an entitlement mentality.  Read my review on Amazon.  Read my review of this book on GoodReads.)  Bought 5 February 2015 in Arlington, Texas.  Read 25-27 February 2015.  Psychology (Philosophy)
