The Men Who Stare at Goats


By Jon Ronson

I'm reading this true story about the U.S. Military Government and secret service special operations. This isn't the usual type of book I would choose to read but I have a B.S. in psychology and a friend thought I would be interested. The title was enough to make me lose interest but when she recommended it, well, I had to give it a chance.

I think it's fascinating - in a very Area 57 type of way. I'm not all the way through it yet. But I think it is very interesting. It's been made into a movie - and I'm thinking about watching that but I think it might be hard to take this book into the silver screen mode. Anyone seen the movie-with George Clooney, Jeff Bridges, Ewan McGregor, Kevin Spacey and the Goat, someone must have seen it...?

Are there any books you've read that you didn't think you'd like - but did?

I watched the movie and liked it very much. Not a lot of other people did, though. So take that for what it's worth.
