I decided to turn this rainy Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend into a catch-up on reading day, especially because I had so many in-process books. So I wrapped up all these books today.
I enjoyed this book almost as much as Turing's Cathedral, just a great portrait of a particular period in American history and some key characters in it.
This book is entirely different than the other two and I can't remember how I even came by it, but, it is a book written in the early 1950's about the state of man, and I was delighted that this book helped inform the previous two, and visa versa. Namely, the first two books talked about the math and science involved in computers and bombs during the middle of the 20th century, and Rollo May's book looks at the ramifications of that from a psychoanalytical perspective. The other thing I liked about this book was how relevant it is 60 years later.
I saw the author's Ted Talk online and bought the book and am 100% onboard with it's findings.
Not that this was a light read, but it was less taxing intellectual and just an enjoyable treatise on the title that I found enjoyable.
