doctorj "Fooled by Randomness" by Nassim Nicholas Taleb because it'll change the way you look at markets and life in general.

 

Does it follow on from the "Black Swan" well worth a read to. http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/icon14.gif

 

Another good book is "1000 Barrels a Second" where to after Peak Oil ( which is now )

"The Great Fire" by Shirley Hazzard.

Winner of The Miles Franklin Award: 2004

A most beautiful piece of literature.

Hypnotic and dream like quality.

 

However most readers would be unable to appreciate such work.

I laughed. ... In Mission to Tashkent, Oxford University Press 1992, the author, F W Baily, wrote of Central Asia; "Many a British subaltern would have enjoyed this isolated but sporting post." He recounts how, when in disguise, he was hired by Bolshevik secret police to track down himself . Also why the intelligent spy always carries two toothbrushes.
