Last summer I read Justice by Dominick Dunne. In it he basically uses several different scenarios to show how the U.S. Judicial system is unfair. Very interesting and moving read.

A really good book I've read recently was "The Red Queen - Sex and the Evolution of Human Nature", by Matt Ridley... while I didn't actually agree with everything he said, I still enjoyed it.

Oh, and - love this thread!

Reading a book called "The Arabs". Teaches you sooo much about the Middle East. Highly recommend it.

just started reading a new book as well, The Future of Freedom.
from what i read so far i think it about differentiating between democracy and liberty, how you can have bad democracies (like those electing arafat) and good monarchies (like that of jordan). i think he's going to argue that unregulated democracy underminess liberty and the rule of law. so far he has my attention, i already recommend it.

very remarkable and touching as well as uplifting .
truly a tip if you're in to somthing different...

Let's see... books to recommend...

Pooh and the Philosophers. I can't remember who the author is, but a very good book.

The Republic, by Plato. An essential read for anyone interested in philosophy. The allegory of the cave will blow you away.

Analects, by Confucius.

Meditations, by Descartes. Strange, and somewhat hard to grasp, but good nonetheless.

come on! did u really think im gonna finish this monster like it was some science fiction novel? This book is like a huge fight that lasts 800 pages and until now I've not been ready to go to war Seriously I bought it to have it "in case". I did read a few pages (30, 40) to get the idea and decided to wait for the ultimate moment. It might come next week as well as in 16 years.

What I did read and would highly recommend to anyone are all of Murakami's books. Finished three of them and was literally blown away each time. I'd recommend "Wild sheep chase" first, the move on to "wind-up bird chronicle". So addictive, entertainting, mindfucking and fascinating
