The Guns of August by Barbara Tuchman.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Mikhail Bakunin.

The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams

This is probably my fifth time going through the series. It has always been my favorite book series next to The Dark Tower series by Stephen King.

Also, the movie sucked. If you want a good cinematic representation of this series I highly suggest hunting down the BBC series

Some of these essays are just amazing.

I read those same two books and recently mentioned them in a discussion about learning physics. What a coincidence. ^^.

I highly recommend them, though, if you haven't read them already. They're not as complicated as all that. Actually they're pretty much layman-friendly for the most part.

I first read Hawking's BHoT when I was much younger, and that, coupled with Asimov's SF gave me a sense of wonder about the cosmos I never had before.

I just read Post Office by Bukowski.

It has it's jolts and moments but I prefer the poetic work much more.

Did you read Women and if so, how does it compare? It's the only work I read of his, and read it translated too, but I liked it a lot. Bukovski seemed like a breath of fresh air from the norm.

Nope, that I have not read at this time.

I mainly have read a bunch of his poetry which has a great deal of outside of norm drifting in and out of society. I like it a lot so I'll still give more of his novels some tries I'm sure.

On another point to the thread I suppose I am still currently reading Winesburg, Ohio by Sherwood Anderson as that's been an off & On type of odd character mixing short story inspiring book I like to keep reading.

I'm re-reading The Sirens of Titan by Vonnegut for the n-th time. Beautiful book, it changed a lot in me. Love it!
