+Germs and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies</a> by Jared Diamond</dt>
+<dd>
+This books tries to answer the question of why did different human societies 
+evolve differently. It demonstrates that geography and bio-geography played
+a big role in shaping the destinies of people in different places on our 
+planet. This book contains many interesting ancedotes, a wonderful theme, and
+is a pleasure to read. Highly recommended.

+The third installment in the series of three books containing a collection of

+"Higher Order Perl" is both enjoyable and accessible. Mark Jason Dominus
+demonstrates some techniques that originated from the LISP world and shows how
+to implement them in Perl, and how they can be put into good use. I learend a
+lot from this book: how currying, iterators and streams can be useful, how a
+recursive descent parser can be implemented, and many other things.
