@GeorgeFeb Ah, i see you're a man of culture aswell
Personally i'm a big fan of the art of war. I gave my first copy away as a gift, then promptly bought another copy. It is a very rewarding read.
@c_arenz :which art of war? Machiavelli or Sun Tzu?
@clousems Sun Tzu, i've never read anything by Machiavelli.
I liked Robert Greene - 48 Laws of Power though.
I can also recommend Other Minds: The Octopus, the Sea, and the Deep Origins of Consciousness. Totally different topics, but equally as mindblowing.
Sun Tzu' Art of War is one of my favorites. But some copies are better than others. I gave mine away some years ago and I miss it ever since.
The funniest thing is that I'm reading Sun Tzu atm!
Best copy is on the feedbooks.com, obviously free!
I'm downloading the preview to compare with my memory. I had a really good edition and a not so good one I can't remember the publisher. I remember the cover though I can find it. @GeorgeFeb
My first copy was a simple translation, the second had added illustrations and summaries.
However I'd also like to recommend Flow by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. It's a great book and also quite informative.
All of Hemingway's work. I especially like The Old Man And The Sea. It brings back childhood memories as my first real novel by a famous author. I was hooked after that. Elmer Gantry by Sinclair Lewis and most of Ambrose Bierce's work are also great. Modern era writers like Stephen King, Dan Brown, & Tom Clancy suit my taste as well.
Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment (also his Notes in Siberian prison). Camille Paglia.
It's called *TwentySix Reasons Why Jews Don't Believe in Jesus*. 😝
