Reckons its better than bitcoin now.

Well, six of his books have been withdrawn, actually by the publisher. His more well known books are unaffected as far as I can see.

Cheers

Well, you won't be able to buy any Dr Seuss books at Amazon, they have been banned due to the author being a racist.
However, you can buy one A. Hitlers book called Mein Kampf ( see Amazon)
Seems theres racists,, then theres racism.
Got me stumped.

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.

"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.

Here is an article about the seriously-up-himself (in my view) Mr Taleb

Peter Bernstein has also written a book on risk: "Againgst the Gods: The Remarkable Story of Risk".

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. icon14.gif

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