The Islamist - Ed Husain
Rather interesting book about the authors experiences of becoming a radical islamist and then becoming a sane person again. It's interesting to compare the beliefs and attitudes of 1st generation immigrant muslims to some of the 2nd, 3rd generation british born muslims and the converts and how easy it is for the converts and young british muslims to be blinded by extremism. Great quote at the start too: "Beware of extremism in religion; for it was extremism in religion that destroyed those who went before you." Prophet Mohammed (570 - 632)
Seemed like a quote entirely relevant to today and to all religions and ideologies.

Nikolas Rose - Governing the Soul. (1999). Interesting reading, though probably not for people which are not obsessed with later Foucault...

Our Final Century? by Martin Rees. I just started today, but it looks interesting. I have the dutch translation and when I translate the sub title (if that's the correct word) it says Will humans survive the 21st century? So that's what the book is about. But I think that was obvious.

Almost done with Teatro Grottesco by Thomas Ligotti. The book really wasn't what I was expecting but I still like it. It's a collection of short stories that are considered to be "horror". To be more exact, these stories are just very very bleak and nihilistic. It's a rather interesting read. Most of the stories are very good but there's 2 that I didn't really appreciate so far. If you want to read something different and that's very doom, try Thomas Ligotti.
