Ok so anyone have a favorite author that has realy inspired or a book that has changed your life in some way.
Almost done with "Stranger in a Strange Land" by Heinlein.
Anyone else enjoy SF? I need more high quality recommendations, please and thank you.
Denialism by Michael Specter
Discworld. no contest.
Sorry to just jump in like this, but I'm looking for an unbiased book on the historical development of Christianity. Not history according to the bible, but an anthropological approach to the origin and growth of the Christian faith, the assembling of the canon, and the determination of church structure and dogma. Any suggestions?
I'm half-way through the second of two of the best books I've ever read in my life. They're both true stories about inner-city gang life. The first is "Fam - rolling with a London girl gang" by Chyna, an amalgam of five different girls' stories, all true. It's written like a novel in that crisp concise style that inner-city Londoners have. Chyna is a very intelligent girl and you warm to her. The second book is "Among the Hoods - my years with a teenage gang" by Harriet Sergeant. She's a journalist / government researcher who befriended a gang of teenage boys in Brixton, South London. She just wants to find out what makes them tick and is very sympathetic to them. Is Harriet Sergeant peculiarly British? I like to think so. She rolls up her sleeves and goes in there like Winston Churchill. You should be able to pick up both books quite cheaply from http://amazon.co.uk.
"Bad Land" is a stunning classic and I can't get enough of it.
