Vittorio warns that a post listing the contents of a personal bookshelf contains no 'useful identity information'.
Au contraire my Redmond friend. Almost the first 3 books I saw on my own shelves were matches.
(Eternal Golden Braid's cover lost as a result of frequent 'frustration tosses' over the years).
These and other overlaps (e.g. Code Book, Linked, Black Swan, etc) in our reading identify Vittorio as a man of rare insight, intellect, and wit.
Vittorio, seeing your enthusiasm for narcissistic DNA, I feel safe recommending a story of retrograde motion.
