@BillW,
Too bad this bright doctor did not think of fishing before cutting himself up.

@PremierProgramExness,
Here is your problem in a nutshell. You represent a company that supposedly gives exam success and you fall at the first hurdle.

There is no book called godfather. Note your use of lower case g.

The book is called The Godfather by Mario Puzo. Note the correct use of capital T and G.

How on Earth can you expect anyone to take your company seriously when you make such basic errors?

This is Kindergarten stuff. Most primary kids would not make the mistake you just made.

Finally getting around to reading David McCullough's The Great Bridge. A history of the planning and building of the Brooklyn Bridge and a biography of the builder and his son, it came out fifty years ago. The engineering truth on display could be pretty accurately shortened to; steel in tension, granite in compression. It's a very enjoyable read.

@George,
I started reading 4 at the same time on a recentish holiday

Station Eleven - Emily St. John Mandel (finished it - pretty good 4/5)

A Letter to Layla: Travels to Our Deep Past and Near Future - Ramona Koval (still only half way throught but really enjoying it (I find it hard to find time to long read when I'm not on vacation)

Moneyland: Why Thieves and Crooks Now Rule the World and How To Take It Back - Oliver Bullough (early on finding it a little heavy going)

Factfulness - Hans Rosling (hoping this gets better - author is a bit annoying at the start, not far enough in to make a call)

I was reading the LotR books but then I needed to read two other ones and I haven't read The Two Towers or The Return of the King because probbly those two books got me bad, I guess, I actually liked one but I didn't finished it, the closest to reading now is playing some of these interactive novels/choice-of games like The Life and Suffering of Sir Brante (which is a visual novel, because it has drawings to visualize what's happening on the scene, but it reads like a novel) and the Infinity saga (it only has two games completed and one on beta, the games are Sabres of Infinity and Guns of infinity, while the beta one is Lords of Infinity).

I just was getting ready to enjoy the writings once more of James P Hogan who was a very hard science fiction author with an engineering background when I made the error of looking up the man history.

He was a racist and a and holocaust denier of all things a fact that I had no clue of while readings his work.

Damn it going to be interesting to see if I can still enjoy his writings an judge him only by his science fiction writings.

@edgarblythe,
I think there must be magic for young children to love those fairly complex and long books so greatly that they got their parents to take them to bookstores in the middle of the night to get the next copy of the Potters books as soon as they was released.

I've had the same experience with people I have check their history. They never remain the same in my mind.

@BillW,
I compartmentalize as many artists, authors, and such as I can. I could name some who still leave a bad thought behind it all.
