I’ve been asked a couple of times for a ‘reading list’. A list of the books that have most impact in my working life.
Some of these are communist rants, others are liberal socialist idealists, many are out and out right wingers. All of these will impact your views in one way or another. For that reason you should read them, if you disagree – then even more of a reason to read them.
You don’t have the answers – and most certainly don’t have all of them, that is why the opinion of others is important.
At some point I’ll drop in some links directly to them.
Eventually, when we revert back to burning villages and running off with our most prized possessions, which will include our books these are the ones you should take. Oh and all of the major religious books, anything Pre Gutenburg. These books have been around for thousands of years they must have something to teach us.
