Books Buzz: Any Great Books You Recomend?

The Hustle Economy

just felt like sharing, I've been wondering about this (transforming your creativity into a career).

Any new books (or old) you feel like sharing?

I'm sure many have read (or at least heard of) it, but for those who haven't:
Godel,_Escher,_Bach_(first_edition).jpg

I read this once when I was too young to really get it (but still enjoyed it), and again more recently. Can't recommend it enough; entertaining and thought-provoking.

GEB! Yes!
My mother used to read me and my sister the fugue parts when we were younger and I later read it in german and english, what a great book IMO.

are you asking whether GEB is a scifi book or whether you should give a scifi recommendation? GEB is not, and if I were to recommend something it would be the classic Neuromancer :)
