  • The Fish That Ate the Whale: The Life and Times of America's Banana King -- This is a fascinating book. It is part engrossing biography of a business titan I did not know and part folk history that covers a huge arc of world events (American business and corporations in the 20th century, the development of Central America and "banana republics," WWII and the creation of Israel, the Bay of Pigs, etc.). Other than a bizarre assertion by the author that the equator crosses Honduras, I really liked this book.​
