===================

In July…

 

[INVENTIONS]

Barbara of StrayThoughts declares The Secret War of Charles Fraser-Smith: The Q gadget wizard of WWII by Charles Fraser-Smith with Gerald McNight and Sandy Lemberg to be “a fascinating book”. Outwardly, Fraser-Smith was a civil servant of the Ministry of Supply’s Clothing and Textile Department. In reality, he procured or developed an astonishing numbers of gadgets and supplies for the Special Operations Executive during WWII.

[BIOGRAPHY]

“This book certainly made me think about the Eureka Stockade, one of Australia’s ‘foundation legends’, differently, and to see the connections between the experiences of women there and on the goldfields more generally, with later political and suffrage rights campaigns.” says Denise of Denise Newton Writes of The Forgotten Rebels of Eureka by Clare Wright

 

+++++++

 

[INVENTIONS]

Of Half Lives: The Unlikely Story of Radium by Lucy Jane Santos, Journey & Destination writes, “I found parts of the book fascinating, other parts I thought were too detailed for the layperson who doesn’t have a scientific background. I would recommend Half Lives for those who have some knowledge of the science behind the topic or for someone studying upper high school science as it does go into some depth.”

+++++++

 

[SELF-HELP]

The Menopause Manifesto by Dr. Jen Gunter “…is a comprehensive, practical resource for all in possession of female reproductive organs. I wish I had read something like this five years ago and strongly recommend that women aged from in their early forties consider educating themselves about menopause well in advance.” Shelleyrae @ Book’d Out 

+++++++

 

[INVENTIONS]

Laura of Reading Books Again concludes of Yellow by Michel Pastoureau  “The book is a fine treatise but it is not for the light hearted reader. Obviously, someone interested in art history should read this book. It would be helpful for artists too but I believe there are other books on color that would be more helpful for the studio artist. “

    Your posts always make me want to read more non fiction. I think I’ll see if I can squeeze one or two NF books into my schedule. Thanks!
