Some books I read in the (Chinese) Lunar Year of 2016

Students Who Drive You Crazy. (2009) Corwin Press.

  • It is a good book despite the somewhat negative title. Authors are rather self-reflective and helped me relook my time when I was teaching in the civil service
  • I borrowed it (no surprises) from NLB Singapore

Miracle on the 17th Green. James Patterson. (The crime/thriller writer, yes)

  • Main character Travis gets sacked and goes on to revive a past flame of playing professional golf; saving his marriage in the process
  • Most memorable idea? A man who hates his job would not be an attractive man
  • Cue NLB : )

Happy Lunar New Year!
