I helped my sister move a bunch of her stuff a while back, including books
from her undergraduate degree in political science. Many of these books
have semi-interesting titles:
The Iron Wall: Israel and the Arab World
The Search for Modern China
The Lexus and The Olive Tree: Understanding Globalization
I tried to read a few and discovered that most of these books are just
as dense and boring as the books I had to read for my engineering degree (the last
one being a notable exception – go read it :) Imagine if CS/engineering texts
had better names:
The Beast Inside: Microelectronic Circuits
Sand is Useful: Physics of Semiconductor Devices
Blinding Pain: Fundamentals of Complex Analysis with Applications
I probably still wouldn’t have read any of them, but at least I’d have
an interesting bookshelf.
