|Brown's Book Club Picks|
|When we asked Brown what a book club of his would read, he chose The Golden Ratio: The Story of Phi, the World's Most Astonishing Number by Mario Livio. Brown reasons, "Admittedly, to imply that a book club could get excited talking about a 'number' probably sounds far-fetched, but this book ties together themes of art history, nature, mathematics, philosophy, and religion in an accessible and eye-opening way. Sure to spark great discussions."|
|Digital Debut||An Author's Inspiration|
Wargames screenwriter Larry Lasker noted that Brown's debut novel "is smart and reads with all the pace of a hit movie," while Booklist pointed out that "Brown's skill at hinting and concealing the twist will rivet cyber-minded readers."
|The Doomsday Conspiracy|
Brown credits this No. 1 New York Times bestseller with inspiring him to become a writer, after he found a copy on the beach during a vacation. Recalls Brown, "I read the first page...and then the next...and then the next. Several hours later, I finished the book and thought, Hey, I can do that."
