Reading "Jurassic Park" for the first time. Really brings a new appreciation to the film.

That's a good one.
I don't think any one author (essayist/ideasperson, mainly) has had as much of an affect on me as that guy. Or I've spent way more time mulling on his stuff after the fact than anyone else's. Amazing how much he got into short stories and flights of fancy. Pretty good literary critic/analyst as well.

A panoramic experience that tells the story of Beastie Boys, a book as unique as the band itself by band members ADROCK and Mike D, with contributions from Amy Poehler, Colson Whitehead, Spike Jonze, Wes Anderson, Luc Sante, and more.

Formed as a New York City hardcore band in 1981, Beastie Boys struck an unlikely path to global hip hop superstardom. Here is their story, told for the first time in the words of the band. Adam ADROCK Horovitz and Michael Mike D Diamond offer revealing and very funny accounts of their transition from teenage punks to budding rappers; their early collaboration with Russell Simmons and Rick Rubin; the debut album that became the first hip hop record ever to hit #1, Licensed to Ill and the album s messy fallout as the band broke with Def Jam; their move to Los Angeles and rebirth with the genre-defying masterpiece Paul s Boutique; their evolution as musicians and social activists over the course of the classic albums Check Your Head, Ill Communication, and Hello Nasty and the Tibetan Freedom Concert benefits conceived by the late Adam MCA Yauch; and more. For more than thirty years, this band has had an inescapable and indelible influence on popular culture.

With a style as distinctive and eclectic as a Beastie Boys album, Beastie Boys Book upends the typical music memoir. Alongside the band narrative you will find rare photos, original illustrations, a cookbook by chef Roy Choi, a graphic novel, a map of Beastie Boys New York, mixtape playlists, pieces by guest contributors, and many more surprises.

New Michael Lewis The Fifth Risk. Basically him taking a harder look at three agencies in the government (Departments of Commerce, Energy & Agriculture). It’s fairly political in nature so if you’re somehow a hardcore Trump supporter and Michael Lewis fan (there’s maybe six of you out there), it might come off as slanting ever so slightly against the current administration.

If you like Lewis books, this is classic.
