Re: Which book do you currently read?

The Selfish Capitalist by Oliver James

He highlights studies that show depression, stress and various other forms of mental illness are more predominant in the English-speaking world than in other economically developed nations. His thesis is that this is caused by higher levels of materialism which result from the brand of capitalism practiced in the English-speaking world. He draws a distinction between Selfish and Unselfish Capitalism (broadly Thatcherism/Reaganism v Scandinavian model social democracy)

Interesting read

It's a decent book, but 'Angels & Demons' is so much better.

What would Anderson say?

Re: Which book do you currently read?

They came to Baghad by Agatha Christie, i just love old stuff and especially detective stories

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.
