Book Club Potluck - "The Beginning of Infinity"

Richard has kindly agreed to host a discussion of The Beginning of Infinity: Explanations that Transform the World by David Deutsch on April 12. Orson recommended this book, but he's not the only one. It's a New York Times bestseller: "A provocative, imaginative exploration of the nature and progress of knowledge. Here's a link: http://www.amazon.com/Beginning-Infinity-Explanations-Transform-World/dp/0143121359.

The other option for April is The Blank Slate by Steven Pinker. See the April 19 Meetup.

The May poll results are in, and the winners are: Shakti's pick The Aristotle Adventure by Burgess Laughlin and my pick The Better Angels of Our Natures by Steven Pinker. Karl has volunteered to host one of the May Meetups. Similarly, Kit has agreed to host in June, Marc in July, and Richard, again, in August. Let me know if you'd be willing to host. I need two volunteers per month

Since we are always planning ahead, I've started the poll for our June selections. You'll find that under the "More" menu at the top of this page. Anyone who is a member of this Meetup can submit a title for the poll. Just send me an email or post on this site, and I'll add your selection. However, I will only include one title from each member. If you submitted a title last month, I've rolled it over into the new poll. If you want to change your recommendation, just let me know.

As always, it's essential that everyone who comes to the meeting reads the book in its entirety. Please also bring a food or drink item for the potluck.

Happy reading!

    Tried to read the book but didn't succeed, sorry guys. Too much going on with medical issues etc. I hope to join next month.

    I am just not getting much from this book and thought it would be best to give the spot to someone who is.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
