    Mike Tyson comes to mind. Wonder if he has one?
    Tyson does have one. "Undisputed Truth". A great read. Have much more respect for Tyson after reading this.

    I’m reading Mark Titus’s memoir from his days as a walk-on with THE Ohio State University basketball team. It’s light-hearted stuff to pass the time. I’m enjoying it.

    Same here. A very honest book. Mike doesn't sugar coat it. He was never the same after the death of Cus. My respect of Mike went up big time after reading this great book.

    I'm currently listening to audiobooks.

    Martin Short's memoir (read by him so it's highly entertaining) "I Must Say."

    And "1776" by David McCullough (also read by the author. So if you liked the narrator in Ken Burns' "The Civil War" you should listen to it

    In 2011, Ross Ulbricht, a 26-year-old libertarian idealist and former Boy Scout, launched "a website where people could buy anything anonymously, with no trail whatsoever that could lead back to them." He called it Silk Road, opened for business on the Dark Web, and christened himself the Dread Pirate Roberts (after the Princess Bride character). The site grew at a tremendous pace, quickly becoming a $1.2 billion enterprise where you could buy or sell drugs, hacking software, forged passports, counterfeit cash, guns, grenades, and poisons.

    Finished "1776" this morning so I started listening to this book about John Adams defense of the soldiers in the Boston Massacre.

    I've been doing a ton of work on our back porch (mostly painting, but also had to do some insulating, caulking and patching cement) this past week so I'm going through audiobooks at lightening speed. Hopefully in the next few days it'll be done to the point where I can just sit on the back porch and listen to them while the kids play! ...nah, I'll probably find another project
