oops - should've mentioned this one in India:

I also loved Freakanomics!

And good to know that Eggars book isn't as incredibly awesome as the title. Like a movie that doesn't live up to the Trailer.

Enjoy Turkey at a slower pace... in 9 days it was amazing but I wish I had 3 days in Ephesus alone!

Thanks a lot Adam...could have used that suggestion about 2 months ago.

Dave - The Eggars book drained me..but I hear his book The What is the What is masterful. Hmmm...
