I liked books like The Crysalids and 1984. What are some good books like these? future science fiction types.

speaking of the hitchhikers guide, just read it. 9/10
the narration is just so awesome that the movie just fails so miserably next to the book.

the perks of being a wallflower: 8.5/10
i think everyone can relate to parts of this book. cant wait for the movie.

Any novel by Bentley Little.

Great horror style. I recommend starting off with Dominion.

Seymour Schulich - Get Smarter

This is a mentoring book primarily for the 20-to-40-year-old with entrepreneurial aspirations. Many older folks will also derive considerable inspiration from the life and business lessons contained in Get Smarter.

In examining his own life Seymour Schulich, a Canadian billionaire and philanthropist, realized that at age 20 he-like others his age-knew very little and was aware of that fact. At 30, he writes, one thinks one has acquired a lot of wisdom.

Upon later reflection, however, he realized he knew very little at that age, too!

Has anybody read Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol?

Not gonna lie, I loved A&D and The Da Vinci Code.

Hearing mixed things about it, mostly negative though. Should I even bother?

Read it recently. It's pretty good, huge twists and shit. Ending was a bit dry but all the climax was gone so it's mostly the tie up.

Bumping an old thread.

Thoughts on the book "Competitive Strategy: Techniques for Analyzing Industries and Competitors"

How friendly is it to someone with no background at all in finance/investment?

Recently finished "Good fats bad fats" by gary taubes. The dude takes a very strong stance for the points he makes and puts up good arguments for it too

Girlfriend in a Coma - Douglas Coopland

really good read, It's local too so you'll recognize the names and places of areas. Mainly takes place in the North Shore area.

Enders Game, I read it a long time ago. I think they are also coming up with a movie adaptation really soon.

Currently on blue ocean strategy

intriguing so far, it complements alot of the ideas that I can come to good terms with. It's when they start illustrating concepts by drawing upon real-world examples that I might show some disagreement with

halfway through enders game actually. its not bad, but its still just building up.

also read hokkaido highway blues, about a canadian who hitch hikes through japan. well written but a lot of anti japanese sentiments that were kind of counter to what i expected while reading the book.

finished good boss, bad boss - dr. robert sutton

even though some of his points can come across as being common sense, they are key principles that we often leave out/neglect in our daily lives and he is able to draw upon them with great insight. He really likes to illustrate concepts through examples in the corporate setting that I find to be really interesting and relatable.

great read 8/10

Hannibal and Me by Andreas Kleuth. A good book about how to achieve success and learn from failure.
