Books


#1

What book is everyone currently reading? I'm reading The Fountainhead.


#2

I think I'm gonna get The Art of Worldly Wisdom by Balthasar Gracian & Hagakure pretty soon.


#3

"Free to Choose" by Milton and Rose Friedman. Great stuff on economy, role of government, free trade, ect.


#4

dune, fountain head is on my to be read list though


#5

If you're into fantasy, try any of David Gemmell's stuff. It's great - not elves and dragons shit, good human warrior-type fantasy with themes of honour, duty, courage, etc.

Just finishing up Knights of Dark Renown.


#6

"Free to Choose" certainly looks like a good read. I just finished "House of Leaves". If the Blair Witch Project were a book, this would be it. A difficult read, but well worth it.


#7

Nothing. But Fountainhead is one of my all-time favorites.


#8

Just finished Tom Clancy's "Debt Of Honor" and am now reading Black Hawk Down (after having seen the movie, which is a very powerful movie, probably one of the best I have ever seen).


#9

"A Scanner Darkly" by Phillip K. Dick.Good shit man.Quite a few movies have been based on his books.


#10

Autobiography of Malcolm X. I'm finding I'm getting a more in-depth portrayal of the man from the book than I did from the movie.


#11

Finishing up Taiko now. then moving on to Fight Club then BlackHawk Down.


#12

just finished fight club yesterday. Freakin' awesome book.


#13

'West With the Night' by Beryl Markham. Great book on an early female pilot in Africa. Actually the first female pilot in Africa as well as the first female race-horse trainer in Africa. Inspiring.


#14

atlas shrugged, read fountainhead a while back and its definitely changed me in a lot of ways, and so far atlas has been doing the same


#15

The most inspirational book I've read in the last year is "The power of one". It's a fictional story, but a great read.


#16

Rainbow Six, Tom Clancy.


#17

"The Spiritual Journey of Joseph Greenstein." I have read about 150 pages so far. Puts my life in perspective when compared to his. I'm not even religious.


#18

Atlas Shrugged.


#19

Right now I am reading "The Art of War" by Sun Tzu and "Arc of Ambition" Both seem pretty interesting thus far..


#20

Just finished "Underboss" about Sammy the bull, now reading Angela's Ashes, and Get Buffed by Ian King.
