The books I read in 2012

Below is a list of the books I managed to get through in 2012 (see also 2010 and 2011). I think we can all agree that this is a pretty crazy list by any standard, and probably even more so given my hectic work schedule; relatedly, most of these were consumed between 1:00 AM and 3:00 AM.

It’s all non-fiction of course, and my usual mix of science, technology, psychology, and evolution. The one outlier here probably is my newfound obsession with Howard Hughes. In the last month alone I’ve torn through four books about the man, and am just starting my fifth. I can’t get enough.
