I started Hayek last year and got bogged down. He was preaching to the converted as far as I was concerned anyway.  

I see where Tom Wolfe has passed away. Always a good read.

I'll see how far I can get with Hayek...but I'm looking forward to reading some Wolfe - have had good intentions to read him for years, but must get to it now.

GUITAR: AN AMERICAN LIFE by Tim Brookes.
[/quote

A good read.  I'd love to try one of his guitars.  The process he describes is very interesting

Finished this one.  Enjoyed but found the writer a bit long-winded with all the history and commentary.  Maybe he needed a word count for the publisher.  Not awful but I wish there had been more about the building process and less of everything else.   I want to reread St John’s CLAPTON’S GUITAR now, a much better book that focuses more on the build and shop dynamics.

Kitchen Confidential, Anthony Bourdain. I finally got around to reading this book after seeing No Reservations. Having worked in the food industry as a pearl diver (dishwasher), sous chef, back up line cook and bacon cooker (hundreds of 2'x3' sheets every day from 11pm to 7am all day, every day at a large casino) and all that before my 17th bday I really had no desire to read about food service but Anthony Bourdain is a fantastic guide through the food industry.
I recently bought Stiff but haven't started it yet.
Well, as most everyone knows now, we lost Anthony Bourdain recently.
Here's a video I saw on another forum recently that you guitar lovers might enjoy.
