Crash Course by Chris Martenson. This is by far one of the best books I've ever read. It totally changed my world view.

In this book, Martenson discusses what he calls the "three E's," the economy, the environment, and energy. Martenson argues convincingly that because of the changing dynamic of the "three E's" we are entering a period of history that we have never experienced before and that is why "the next twenty years will be completely unlike the past twenty years."

Just read 1Q84 by Murakami. Was a bit disappointed because of too many loose ends and something in the prose that reminded me of twilight.

I would recommend Dune series (including the newer ones)

I haven't seen it in here but World War Z is one of my all time favorite books. Don't be scared off by the Zombies. I'm not a horror fan and I still this book to bits.

I read a lot of biographies, and I have to say that, these are my favourites:


Somebody gave me this book, I would have never bought it in a million years, and it was the best biography I have ever read - interesting, insightful, and eye-opening.


I bought this one on my Kindle and it was a great read - you hear stories of how eccentric and strange Jobs was but this is the only biography he ever cooperated with and it is amazing to peer into the eclectic mind of Jobs to see what makes it tick. You don't need to be an Apple fanboy to be interested in how one of the most valuable companies in the world came to be.


Richard Branson's autobiography... it's edgy and pulls no punches, but makes you realize what an unbelievable gambler he is - the risks they took along the way to build Virgin makes you realize how aggressive most mega-successful entrepreneurs are.

Those 3 books are must-reads if you are interested in business and the people within it.

Mark

A Crate of Vodka by Alfred Kokh and Igor Svinarenko. Great read for anyone into pre-and post-Soviet collapse history.
