Brian's Book Notes

Back to Books Main



This section of BMH Online serves as a repository for some of the notes that the webmaster, Brian, has made on some of the books he has read. The lists of books read dates back over 20 years and most books are of the non-fiction variety, and many have had notes made in one form or another, from little scraps of paper, Notepad/txt files, word-processed or previously published blogs, to those stored away in journals and ring-binders. The idea has always been to do something with these notes. Notes are made because certain points have intrigued the mind and some further insight and understanding has been craved. The pursuit of knowledge seems important. In order to gain some order in this process I list here (so far) some of these book notes which are copious enough to warrant their own pages.

Becoming the Person God Wants You to Be by Gabriel Alonso
The Templar Treasure at Gisors by Jean Markale
Sands of Time by Jeff Norton
Arthur Mee's Children's Encyclopedia Volume 10
No Man Friday by Rex Gordon
Nature's Ways by Ruth Binney
Taliesin's Travels by Michael Dames
The Martian by Andy Weir
A Clergyman's Daughter by George Orwell
Self Mastery and Fate with the Cycles of Life by H. Spencer Lewis
Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell
The Art of Thinking Clearly by Rolf Dobelli
The Shadow Factory by James Bamford

I would like to gradually add more notes here, so if there is a particular book I have read of which you are curious about what (if any) notes I have made, you are welcome to get in touch to raise a request for that information to be made available.

Finally, a disclaimer: Because my notes often include quotations, I would like to point out that I do recognise that these books are protected by the Copyright act. I share these things in the hope that they may be useful and/or interesting. I hope that what I share encourages anyone that finds any title particularly interesting to either buy a copy or borrow these books from their local library, or at discussion is promoted, which I am sure is what the original authors intended.
