The Power of Habit - Charles Duhigg

I read this book literally at starbucks, on my iPad.
I sat there, and I read the book in one sitting because I couldn't get up, and I finished the book. One by one by one I was going through it and said..
everybody needs to read this book.

Found it! Recently finished How to set a fire and why by Jesse Ball (great titel right?) Its about a Holden Caulfield kinda girl who's trying to get into the schools Arson Club. Great and very funny coming of age novel.

Now just finished Empire of Illusion by Chris Hedges who pants a pretty grim picture of the US, saying it's more and more clinging to illusion and fictions because of it's inability to deal with the grim reality. Great read, im Def gonna read more from Hedges. Starting with War Is A Force That Gives US Meaning.

Stephen King: The stand.

Pains a great picture, of what the apocalypse of our times could easily be. There's a chapter with an old woman remembering her youth, absolutely heart breaking the way he describes it.

I didn't know this thread existed and im pissed at myself for never looking beforehand.

Few months ago I finished Alexandre Dumas - Count of Monte Cristo in about 5 days it was so good. By far the greatest fiction book I have read.

I normally read philosophy and other nonfiction like political theory and war/history. Recently Nicolo Machiavelli's the Prince and Ceasars commentarys on the gallic war & the civil war as examples

Right now I'm reading based off a friends recommendation P.D. Ouspensky In Search of the Miraculous which is about first hand account of George Gurdjieff's teachings. Seems to be pretty similar to hermetic philosophy, but not far enough in it yet to determine. its quite good so far.

Also started getting into Albert Camus and existentialism. Currently reading 3 of his books The Rebel, The Myth of Sisyphus, and the Plague.

Nothing fancy.

Murder Machine documenting the Roy DiMeo crew of the Gambino Family. Really enjoyed this book, flew through it. Strongly recommend for any American Mob aficionado.

I'll look into this. Is it from first hand accounts?
