This book will blow your mind. Seriously.



The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism

Naomi Klein explodes the myth that the global free market triumphed democratically. Exposing the thinking, the money trail and the puppet strings behind the world-changing crises and wars of the last four decades, The Shock Doctrine is the gripping story of how America’s “free market” policies have come to dominate the world-- through the exploitation of disaster-shocked people and countries.

The Dhandho Investor: The Low - Risk Value Method to High Returns - Mohnish Pabrai

The Business of Value Investing: Six Essential Elements to Buying Companies Like Warren Buffett - Sham M. Gad

Both of these books are written by famous new generation fund managers. They are both really good skeleton book on investing. Which gives a very good guilde line for both novice and better knowleaged investors to improve their games.

Oh both of these investors actually had lunch with Warren Buffett and Mohnish Pabrai actually paid 1.65 million dollars for his.

Cheers!

Novels by R. A. Salvatore, specifically those in the Forgotten Realms settings. Start with The Crystal Shard. If you like that one, you have 23+ more to go to continue with the story of his characters. He is mostly a fantasy author.

From wikipedia:
Quote:
One of his most popular characters is Drizzt Do'Urden, a drow, or dark elf, portrayed against the stereotypes of his race, who defied a nation of evil enemies with his swordsmanship and courage. He abandoned the Underdark, a merciless and barren land of unmarked and limitless tunnels where deadly creatures continually lurk. His journey for freedom leads him to the surface where he faces discrimination at every turn because of his dark heritage. Drizzt stumbles along in a harsh world until he finally comes upon friends who understand the kindness of his heart. Together, they fight for justice against sinister enemies who dare to disrupt the peace of Drizzt's newfound homeland.

Drive, by Daniel Pink
I also vouch for the Malcolm Gladwell books, worth a read.

In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts by Gabor Mate

This amazing doctor works in the downtown eastside with the homeless drug addticts. His book has completely changed my view of those people.

THE ALCHEMIST

By: Paulo Coelho


A must-read. It's a relatively short novel too. Seriously one of the greatest books ever written. The best one for me, at least.
