      Homer - The Odyssey

      It's pretty hungry reading - the characters are forever slaughtering delicious animals.

          I finally started on the Workbook for Body Image. Confusing.

              Just finished Convict Conditioning yesterday. For anyone who doesn't know, it's a hardcore bodyweight/calisthenics manual that focuses on 6 compound movements that lead up to very advanced and beastly feats of strength (one-arm pushup, one-legged squat, one-arm pullup, hanging leg raise, stand-to-stand bridge, and one-arm(!) handstand pushup). Kind of like Primal Blueprint Fitness but more hardcore and with (IMO) better progressions and rep targets. Very good, clear explanations and what looks like a very thorough and gradual progression for each exercise. I'm starting tonight!

              Now I'm skimming through Convict Conditioning 2, which I'll read a little more in depth once I've progressed through the "basic" CC program for a while. This one is an accessory volume that talks about stuff like grip-, waist- and neck-specific calisthenic training.

              I'm partway through The Rise and Fall of the Third Chimpanzee as well and so far it's quite good, but a bit slow like most Jared Diamond books. He likes to repeat himself and belabor points. Oh well, I do too.
              Today I will: Eat food, not poison. Plan for success, not settle for failure. Live my real life, not a virtual one. Move and grow, not sit and die.

                Just finished Primal Body, Primal Mind by Nora Gedgaudas.

                The second half was better than the first half.
                Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

                  Yes, I'm just beginning the bit about the journey to the Underworld. Although it can be a bit hard to get my head around all the different characters, I am enjoying it. It helps that my edition (Oxford) has a names appendix, which is 15 pages long. Although there are debates about the true story of Homer, it is generally believed that his poems were composed orally because he was blind and supposedly around at the end of the Dark Ages when the Greeks forgot how to write. If that's true it is very impressive because it's quite a complex story with flashbacks and amazing detail.

                          • I've just finished The Hard Eight, and I have the Thorn King but i don't want to read drak fantasy just now. Hope the library can deliver some of the fluffy funny woman's mysteries before I go book-starved.

                            • Just started Bob Altemeyer's The Authoritarians (free PDF, available here) and so far it's very interesting. It's about the psychology behind authoritarianism and authoritarian followers.

I concluded that Keynes was really writing a parody; I just can't believe that he expected people to think it was serious economics. The internal inconsistencies are just too great.
                                No, Graeber doesn't seem to fit into a Keynesian or a Smithian or a Friedmanian paradigm--his ideas are pretty fresh to my eyes. The book is also mostly a historical view of the actual origins of debt and credit. I really enjoyed it, though it was definitely a long, slow read.
