    1. The 33 Strategies of War - Robert Greene
    2. 48 Laws of Power - Robert Greene
    3. The Art of Lying - Kazuo Sakai with aid from Nanaka Ide
    4. The Art of Power - Thich Nhat Hanh - this book is not what you would initially think, it's fascinating about Buddhist inner power and Zen mindedness in the face of life's chaos
    5. (I disagree with much of this book but it fascinated me about what most people think matters in life) How to Make Friends and Influence People - Dale Carnegie - The book should be named 'how to be a pushover and be good at pushing people over in spite of it.'
    I would not say anything else is a must-read to get by in life. If anything else I read mattered that much, I'd remember it.

    The 2 works of Greene that I mentioned pay homage to Sun Tzu, so if you don't like reading cryptic advice, Greene excellently spells out what Tzu meant with his teachings.

    Books that are too Cursed to read  
    "A Bad Place" by Dean Koontz.  I was semi-sick with cold in winter with a wood stove, and finally could not deal with my consciousness when reading that book, so part way into decided that the consciousness portrayed in that book was putting me in such a bad place, I threw that book in the woodstove.

    Must read books:


    1} "Critical Path".... R B Fuller 1981
