For those not addicted to TV, here is my favorite book of the last 2 years.
'Faith, Madness, and Spontaneous Human Combustion' by Callahan is an amazing look at what we are made of.

Dr. Callahan is a doctor of immunology, and a philosopher. His book is a 50 - 50 dose of each.
The premise of the book is that our immune system - more than our brain, more than our nervous system, more than anything else - is what defines who/what we are.

I have never before read a biology-related book that I could even REMOTELY call 'fascinating', but I found this one to be so.
I actually bought 6 more copies and gave them to my best friends.

Disclaimer 1: the first chapter is arguably the weakest chapter of the book. Keep reading!
Disclaimer 2: the book does not deal that much with Spontaneous Human Combustion(1 chapter). But it sure makes for a great book title!

regards,
Dennis
