    "the way of the peaceful warrior" by dan millman

    really enjoying it so far, very inspiring book, good motivation to deconstruct and take life more lightly.

    Choke by Chuck Paluhiniuk (spelling?) which I haven't decided on yet - I don't know if it's really good or just above average.

    Empire - Antonio Hardt and Michael Negri - heavy social criticism.

    The Art Of War - Niccolo Machiavelli

    Last Exit to Brooklyn... just about to get into it. Not really started it yet. It's written by the same guy who wrote Requiem for a Dream though so I think it's going to be good. Had a flick through in the shop before I picked it up and I like the style. Seems ok.
    I'll let you know once i've read a bit more.

    "War is a Force that gives Us Meaning" by Chris Hedges.

    It's an anti-war nonfiction book. i know the title seems like it's a pro war, but it isn't. this book explains how war seduces not only those in the front lines but entire societies, corrupting politics, destroying culture, and perverting basic human desires.

    very interesting so far:thumbup:
