      If you are a sci-fi lover then how about trying some of David Weber's work? And I don't just mean the Honor Harrington series,

                Just finished 'War in the Fourth Dimension: US electronic warfare, from the Vietnam War to the present' (Albert Price) Very, very good. EW is not 'just that', I found out

                Currently reading 'Leave No Man Behind: The Saga of Combat Search and Rescue' (George Galdorisi)

                      Not a great fat of Dan Brown I'm afraid. Great story lines pity about the writing style.

                                      Tell me about it. Have you read And Another Thing by JC? I'm convinced he's totally off his trolly.
