Books Read in 2011-2012: "Dangerous Visions" edited by Harlan Ellison

Books Read in 2012: "What Should I Do With My Life" by Po Bronson

He decided that he should travel around the world and talk to other people who had asked themselves the same question, pass judgement on them, and tell them what they should be doing better.
