I haven't been very diligent about updating my challenge list, but I realized that, as with my Dewey challenge list, I really needed to break up the list into multiple posts so that the touchstones don't take forever to load.

PB--Modern languages; Celtic languages: Travels in an Old Tongue by Pamela Petro. Petro is a writer or journalist or something (it's not entirely clear) who has taken a language program in Wales and then decides to travel around the world to meet Welsh people and Welsh speakers in other countries. The book got off to a slow start for me, in large part because Petro doesn't really introduce herself. Then I enjoyed it for 100 pages or so, but then it really started to get annoying. It's over 300 pages long, which is too long for what Petro has to say. She and her friend go to plenty of places, but nothing terribly interesting happens. They always seem tired, cranky, and short of money, and it seemed to me that they didn't plan well and were entirely too dependent on the kindness of strangers for lodging and other necesseties (although these people are not always treated kindly in the book). Petro isn't the greatest writer, either; she used way too many inapt and unnecessary metaphors and similes, and sometimes she jumped around among topics in unpredictable and confusing ways. I really enjoy travel literature on the whole but did not enjoy this one.

TA - Engineering (General). Civil engineering: Remaking the World by Henry Petroski. This is a compilation of essays about engineering. Most of them are about specific engineers or specific projects (like the engineer (!?) who wrote Robert's Rules of Order, or the Hoover Dam). I liked those; they were just the right length and full of interesting tidbits. Petroski does an excellent job of putting the engineering innovations in historical and social context. A couple of them are about engineering more generally, such as the use of computers in engineering and Petroski's complaints about how more engineers should be considered for Nobel prizes. Those were more curmudgeonly and probably interesting mainly to engineers (i.e., not me.)

HE - Transportation and communications: The Outlaw Sea by William Langewiesche. This is a nonfiction book about the serious and pervasive lack of order on the oceans and in the shipping industry. Langewiesche opens with a bit of history about the "flags of convenience" and the International Maritime Organization, but the bulk of the book is about specific instances of shipwrecks and piracy that, in his opinion, result (at least in part) from the lack of meaningful regulation and inspection of vessels. He cites examples of poorly-maintained, aging, insufficiently-manned shipping vessels that have run aground or broken apart, causing death and destruction; the wreck of the Estonia passenger ferry between Talinn and Stockholm; the pirating of ships in the Strait of Malacca; and the unregulated, environmentally disastrous shipbreaking operations in India and Bangladesh. Each example is treated in detail, and Langewiesche obviously did extensive first-hand research. He is an excellent writer, and despite the serious subject, this is a quick read.

This book is several years old, but as the recent spate of high-profile piracy incidents indicates, nothing much has changed. It is a real problem without much hope of a near-term solution.

What did you think of How to Lie with Statistics? I've been meaning to read it for a while but haven't ever got around to it.

If you have ever had a statistics class, the concepts will all be familiar to you. I thought it was a good reminder of the many ways in which statistics can be manipulated, particularly in advertisements and news. It's an easy read, and the style is approachable and humorous.

How was Fire Under the Sea? It's an interesting topic but I worry that a book that old would be badly dated.

I enjoyed it. It was more of about the history of how the discoveries occurred, the scientists involved, and why the discoveries were such a big deal than about the details of what they meant. Cone makes clear that there would be further studies that would refine and change the analysis that was current at the time.
