Book Reviews, Part I.

I have hammered out three (3) books in the past week: Born Fighting: How the Scots-Irish Shaped America by James Webb; Think Like a Billionaire by Donald Trump; and The Games Do Count by Brian Kilmeade. Think Like is remarkably superficial. The Games Do Count is a compliation of short chapters each dedicated to a non-sports celebrity and his or her exploits in sports. The standout of the three is Webb's tome. It provides a sweep of history, some political commentary and even some autobiographical information about the author (a former Secretary of the Navy).
