The books that actually changed the way I am
The Tao of Pooh: By Benjamin Hoff, the best book I have ever seen explaining the philosphy Taoism.
The Prince: By Nicolo Machiavelli, the original evil genius of you have ever wanted to understand politic and power this is the book to read.
The Tao of Jeet Kune Do: by Bruce Lee, the best analisys of one on one unarmed combat I have ever heard of.
Classic Karate: by Mas Oyama, This book cover the baisics of Karate you already know and make you realise you don't know anything. Not to mention Oyama was a man so tough he did bull fights with his bare hands, and won 15 of 16, ( note one fight was a draw, he downed the bull but he lost so much blood he couldn't stand and ahd to be taken to hospital, but he did survive)
These four books I read all the time, they are all the kind of books that you can read 10 times and get somthing diffrent each time.
