Just noticed: if you're Toby Thurston, why Thruston?
We share 99 books, you have pithy reviews, and I like your interest in technical subjects like mathematics, physics, psychology. So I've marked yours as an Interesting Library, which I use to discover books / learn more about books in my library. Now you know!
