aYo Good shit.

This is a must read. However, for all the illiterate kids out there, there is also a Freakonomics documentary. I would encourage you to take a look at both mediums, but the documentary does a good job putting everything into visuals.

the most enteratining/raunchiest shit i've ever read.

was also required to read this shit during high school. one of the most thoughtful books that i've read.

eat better you fat fuck.


just read siddhartha, shit was fire, a pretty short and easy read too.
currently reading slaughterhouse five, next up is narcissus and goldmund by herman hesse and brothers karamazov by dostoevsky.
tryin to get into those russians but that shit is so dense, i read like the first quarter of brothers karamazov already but shit..took me like a month.

Lol those russian classics are like at least 1,000 pages sometimes up to 2,000.... I really think those were best for when there was no TV/internet.... Before I die I want to finish a few of those. It's a challenge, I bet it feels great when you complete a 1,000+ page story. I just want to choose to the right one, I would hate to finish a 1,000 page story and walk away with nothing.

But I agree Siddhartha was good.... A bit overrated though. Some people say it's life changing, didn't change my life at all. There were some good ideas in the book, but not life changing.

I'm reading Open by Andre Agassi....

i'm reading dan brown's 5th book. i'll let you know how it is.
Aug 02, 2011 @ 21:49
For the Russians you might want to start with Notes from Underground by Dostoyevsky its short(about 130ish pages I think)and not super difficult. Its a good intro.
Aug 02, 2011 @ 21:52
^cool thanks for the recomendations
Aug 02, 2011 @ 22:30
personally i thought siddhartha was some bullshit

not my kind of book i guess

I experienced complete ego death and became a being of pure love with this book. It is amazing.

Anyone got a book that gets that creativity flowing and help focus thoughts/ideas so you actually put em in to action?
Preferably non-fiction.


Other then that, anything thats informative and interesting at the sametime.

bump this.
the last 2 books i've read...

sunday brunch is for chumps. book is really well written, anthony bourdain's narrative is gangsta.

there are too many life lessons in this book: take risks, live on your own terms, dream big, etc.

On The Road
Bend Sinister
Clockwork Orange

In Cold Blood
The Art of War
