    Anyone here read books? I mean real books...

    With our busy lifestyle its hard to get in some time to relax and just read a damn good book... I recently finished a book called "Rich dad/poor dad"... Very good book.. What has been the latest that some of you have picked up? Anything you recommend?


    Rich Dad Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids about Money--That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not!

    The following content was provided by the publisher.

    Personal finance author and lecturer Robert T. Kiyosaki developed his unique economic perspective from two very different influences - his two fathers. This text lays out Kiyosaki's philosophy and his relationship with money.

    Reading Meditations by Marcus Aurelius right now. It's interesting how he seems able to accept anything. He wasn't haughty about being emperor but rather spoke as if it were simply his job.

    Some time ago that book was suggested by teacher.. I kick myself in the arse for not reading this book.. I have a strong attraction to anything Greek and Roman era, especially Greek mythology

    One of my favorite books. I try to read a little bit every day all year round. If you like that sort of thinking look into Stoicism in general. To the OP: Best books I've read in a long time are by Daniel Suarez. 1) Daemon 2) Freedom 3) Kill Decision. These are the kind of books you just can't stop reading. http://www.amazon.com/Daniel-Suarez/e/B001V206AK/

    Yep, and with all the nonsense going on right now it's nice to lose yourself in a good book. I have to read fiction now a days to forget the stuff goin' on, otherwise you may see another jarhead on the news shooting up the joint!

    Just finished reading Sinclair Lewis's, Main Street.

    Game of Thrones books. Love them. A while back I found a list of the most disturbing books and gave some a try... they were not lying.
