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.
