What I Am Reading: The Post American World

Yes I know I have not finished reading this book or this book but since I have gone back to classes I have been assigned a few books to read by the end of the term. I debated blogging about the books I am going to read for class but then I realized that I am in fact going to read them and consequently digest them so then I should mention them. First up is The Post American world by Fareed Zakaria, which is, as the title suggests, about the world after America is no longer the preeminent power. I am about 60 pages in so far (which is more pages than I am in to Lennon) and find it to be a fairly enjoyable book that has got me to want to read into a few more subjects he talks about. That being said the financial crisis has left some of his points to be slightly outdated but none the less the main theme of the book appears to still be quite relevant. Expect a review of the book in the next week or so (that's a promise you can take to the bank, because I have a test on the book in a week.

Oh and I will finish Lennon it just might take a year or two.

I have since finished this book, read the review here.
