Finished Black Earth. I found it to be on par with David Graeber's Debt: The First 5000 Years in terms of the type of narrative, performance and quality. One of the better books I've read in the last years.
A friend of mine reccommended Brandwashed, and since I crave a lighter read after the depressingness of the Holocaust I started reading that. If it sucks I think I'll return it and read Turkle's new book instead.
