Concrete: Strange Armor - Paul Chadwick
This is the origin of Concrete, as told by Concrete, which gives it an interesting perspective, and adds a little to some stories that I'd already read. Chadwick makes an interesting comment in the introduction, while talking about trouble and loss: "It's the source of a lot of creativity. Show me a creative person with a happy childhood, and I'll show you one with a terrible adolescence!" Is that true? As somebody who considers himself creative, I stopped to think: I think I had a fairly happy childhood, and as far as I know adolescence wasn't terrible, either. I mean, beyond the normal angst of going through high school.

Anyway, I enjoyed the book. Concrete is great. Woohoo!
