    I own the poker book by PHM Jr. That was the best book on the game I ever read, to be honest.

    Mindsight by .... I forget the author. about 20% into it. pretty good/well written/science based. basiclally how we respond to things and how we might be more likely to control that response by recognizing how the brain works.

    it was referred to me by Val years ago, apparently Val thinks I'm some type of psycho.

    I'm digging into the broken empire trilogy by Mark Lawrence. Not sure where I'm going after that. I'm really running out of new material....

    Hows about this one: Pick 5 books in your collection or otherwise that you would recommend and why.

    The Making of the Atomic Bomb is the best nonfiction I have read in my life. It tells the story of what man is capable of, and it's not fiction. I read it like you would expect someone to read a James Patterson thriller.

    The Creature from Jekyll Island: A Second Look at the Federal Reserve can be eye opening, even if you take it with a grain of salt. The circumstantial evidence presented alongside episodes like the Lusitania is great food for thought. Important background for being a citizen of the country that prints the global reserve currency.

    The Prize is about oil, and if you don't understand the depth to which our current civilization is shaped by oil, you need to read this.

    Of Human Bondage is the best written book in the English language, and my favorite.

    The modern writer who has influenced me most is W. Somerset Maugham ~ George Orwell
    The Border Trilogy by Cormac McCarthy because he is the best American author and while The Road and Blood Meridian might be better individual books, this is the better experience.

    Y The Last Man is a comic book series, graphic novel, whatever, by Brian K. Vaughan, and it's the best I've encountered, better even than Walking Dead.

    I can't easily pick just 5 books, so these are my top 5 series.

    Mistborn Trilogy's (there are two of them) by Brandon Sanderson. He's an absolutely incredible writer. I'm a big fan of fantasy/Sci-fi and his systems of magic are always extremely unique and interesting. In Mistborn, the characters gain abilities by ingesting metal shavings. Different people can gain different abilities by ingesting and "burning" a metal that corresponds with their abilities.

    Stormlight Archive By Brandon Sanderson. Again, Sanderson's an incredible writer. His worlds and characters are very immersive and really suck you in.

    Wheel of Time Series by Robert Jordan (finished by Sanderson) Great series from start to finish, it drags a bit in the middle, but Sanderson did a great job of finishing it off. I actually read this before I read anything else by Sanderson and it was what turned me onto him as a writer.

    Lightbringer series by Brent Weeks. The series starts out a bit slow, but builds into an incredibly well written series with strong characters. He still has at least one more book left to finish the series which was originally a trillogy, but has been expanded.

    The Night Angel Series by Brent Weeks. This one is interesting because Weeks also has a very creative way around his systems of magic and the story is very interesting (basically it's the story of a magical assassin)

    I tend to enjoy long overarching tales. Honorable mention, the Sword of Truth Series by Terry Goodkind. The only reason it didn't make the top 5 is it starts strong and finishes very poorly. I tend to imagine that the series ended before the new trilogy began because the new on just doesn't hold up with the original series.

    If I was gonna recommend 5 books:

    Tattoos On the Heart by Greg Boyle - Funny and sad book about gangbangers trying to make their lives better. Inspirational read.

    First Off the Tee by Don Van Natta Jr - Entertaining book about presidents, their golfing habits, and what it says about them.

    The Rap Year Book by Shea Serrano - This guy picks what he considers the most important Rap song each year since 1979 or 1980 or something like that. Fun read if you like music history.

    The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway - My favorite novel (novella?). Goes quickly, straightforward story, terse writing. I love Hemingway.

    Five Came Back by Mark Harris - Harris discusses five major film directors who made films for and/or about World War II as it was going on (US version of propaganda, I suppose). He details the making of the movies, and how it related to what was going on overseas. I like reading about films so I enjoyed this one.

    I enjoyed the first mistborn trilogy, but I couldn't get into the second one. I like Sanderson, he's a fine writer. I started with Elantris. I gave up on the Jordan series 2/3 through book 7.

    Have you read the Steven Erikson books?
