    Book recommendations\talk

    Inspired by iain's book recommendation-thread, I've started this thread for recommending any kinds of books, and talk about them.

    I would like to recommend "Howard Marks - Mr. Nice". Has anyone except me read it?

    Can you share this reading list, or part of it, with us?

    There's a few books I read a long time ago, and keep promising myself I'd read again... (but it never happens )

    - The Riverworld series by Philip Jose Farmer
    - The Rama series by Arther C Clarke

    Personally I like to read a series of books rather than just the one.

    >>Howard Marks - Mr. Nice
    No I haven't read it.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    Must be especially interesting to a stoned coder, I suppose.

    Hey Stoned_coder, have you noticed some things easier to learn while stoned, as Howard mentions?

    I wouldnt say easier to learn but it can definately make you more focused and concentrated on a subject. Only downside is short-term memory loss now where did I put my coffee?!
