Good reads for Dads (or anyone)

Techstination feature for Wednesday, May 24, 2023

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.       A couple gift ideas for Father’s Day for Dad’s who love to read.      The Heart of the Wild … Dispatches From Landscapes of Wonder, Peril and Hope is a new title from science and nature writer David Quammen.   He worked with a collection of his writings for National Geographic…telling tales of long treks through Africa with explorers like Mike Fay and the wonderous Jane Goodall …who learned how to use duct tape to combat blisters from the Congo…

“Twelve kilometers through the swamp and the forest to get her to this remote place.  She was wearing a cheap pair of plastic market sandals and her feet were torn up by the time we got to the camp.”

The title again… The Heart of the Wild.   Other recommended books .. Adam Gopnik’s The Real Work on the Mystery of Mastery….and Dr. Michael Roizen’s latest…The Great Age Reboot.
