Before crunch time kicked in, I finished reading Liar's Poker, though it would be fair to say that towards the end that reading became fairly skimmy. After the first half of the book, the anecdotes all sort of ran together. If I had to summarize, it would be "folks at Salomon Brothers were very smart, but we really didn't know why we were successful, and in the end, our luck ran out."

I've started reading Charles Stross' Singularity Sky, a hard science fiction book based in a universe where Vernor Vinge's Singularity has already happened. I love these super-science gosh-wow books, so I'll probably breeze right through this during those little breaks we all have. So far it's a lot of fun.
