Beat the Algorithm, MATTERHORN Edition: And the winner is…

Last week, I took on Amazon’s algorithm to recommend a book for Ken, whose last great read was Matterhorn by Karl Marlantes.

Amazon recommended Fields of Fire by James Webb and I recommended The Hunters by James Salter. Well, Ken got back to us and…drumroll…has decided to go with The Hunters

Victory. Is. Mine.

Humans 2, Machine Code 0.
