I have previously posted books that I read and liked. Its been a while, but again here comes a list of those I would suggest.
Stendahls The Red and the Black
Stendahl gets quoted everywhere. Love, love and passion summs up what he stands for. At times somewhat tedious, but the way he describes how people have mood swings is just great. Missunderstandings are comonplace and Stendahl shows acurately how people react to them.
In a world filled with professional parents who’s goal is to have the best kids ever, this book is just an eye opener. I knew that mutations happen, but was not aware how often and how different they could be. The book is written nicely and does not dwell on curiosities. It describes a lot of interesting Mutations that happen to the human body. If you plan to have kids or are unsure why your hair is falling out, this book should be on your list.
The portable atheist
Christopher Hitchens has selected a wide array of essays and excerpts from many great thinkers and writers. If you thought that Richard Dawkins came up with most of his argument, this book will prove you wrong. Even the difference in writing style from one section to the other is worth the read. It is not a book that intends to convert any one to atheism. It is more of a book for atheist or for those who believe in a deity but would like to know how diverse the reasons for atheism can be. Can also be used as a nice introduction to the thoughts of Hume and Penn Jillette, Hobbes, Salman Rushdie and many more.
