FInished No Death, No Fear by Thich Nhat Hanh. It's a Buddhist book, and it gave me a ton of perspective on death and how to approach it. I've had some circumstances in my life recently that made me have great fear of the time I have left on this planet, and to say this book completely eradicated all of it would be an understatement. I've been studying buddhist philosophy for a few years but not to the extent that i've wanted to. This book is pushing me in that direction of life, and I give it my 100% recommendation if any of you have lost anyone recently, and don't know how to make the pain stop.

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.

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....

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.

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