T Nation

Books (Most Influential Lately?)

So I’m looking for some new books to buy…

I know this has been done to death, but what books have you read RECENTLY that you think no one should go their lives without reading?

Thanks

Bueler? Bueler?..I know at least 25 of you from T-Nation can read?!? Ideas?

Denis Leary - Why We Suck

Reading is for saps.

Inside Delta Force by Eric L. Haney.

De Amicitia. (Cicero.)
That’s exactly how I’d put it – no one should go their lives without reading it.

Edit: also fairly recent reads,


Law and Happiness,

City Boy,

The Metamorphosis of Prime Intellect

Grascias to both of you for posting…that only leaves 23 T-Nationer’s left…but I have read both, and loved them both…Any chance you guys could give me your second choices? Seems like only the elite actually read things other than “twilight” around here…

Seriously…thanks again…i read a TON and need some new ideas…

really, books are only for douchebags who DON’T wear their hats crooked and Don’t were SKINNY jeans…

the kindle rapes my libido…

Twenty Something, The Quarter Life Crisis of Jack Lancaster. By Iain Hollingshead

The Fighter. Craig Davidson

Ham and Rye by Charles Bukowski

Less than Zero. Brett Easton Ellis

Cain and Abel. Jeffery Archer

Hate the Kindle. I have to own books. The first two are by brand new authors. Can’t wait for them to do more.

I’ll throw some out there…

Fit From within by: MORAN

In Defense of Food by: Michael Pollan

Ouantam Wellness by: Kathy Freston

On a Dollar a day by: Greenslate and Leonard

Care of the Soul: Thomas Moore

I could go on and on and…
I’m a book junky!

Secretly in love, and thank you so much mim!

If it isn’t an instruction manual or has tits in it, I won’t check it out. So my selection is small:

The Coveted Black And Gold: A Daily Journey Through the U.S. Army Ranger School Experience

Now you do the same for me, read em all! First book report is due on the 20th by 3rd period.

I’ve already read some of the same, but I will report back with what I haven’t and will let you know what I think…But I do appreciate the suggestions.

Ender’s Shadow [Orson Scott Card]

The Light of Other Days [Arthur C Clarke]

Which ones are already off the bucket list? I’m guessing Cain and Ham and Rye.

Hungry, any friend of Ender’s is a friend of mine.
