The best-selling author of The Tipping Point returns with a look at our ability as humans to make decisions, and the various factors that contribute to determine how quickly, and how well, each of us can make those decisions. But I found this book not as well as it was hyped!

The first Afghani novel to be published in English, written by an Afghani physician and resident of California.

The Da Vinci Code : - While I was in bhubaneswar, my sister "Nicku" told me that the novel "Angel and demon" is a must read. And to my surprise its the prelude to "The Da Vincy code". So I set out a target n completed Angel and Demon while returning back in train from bhubaneswar to Mumbai. Four months later , I read "The DVC" .
The Novel claims that Jesus and Mary Magdalene were married, that they had children, and that their descendants included a line of kings in France, as well as some of the main characters in Brown's novel.

Digital Fortress is an interesting book, in that you can learn a lot about cryptography by reading it. But I have to read it...
