I think this book is like "how you can win type", I dont know how many life this book has changed may be none. I am expressing just my opinion for this book others may or may not agree with this.

    In the programming realm, I think Head First Design Patterns is destined to be a classic. (So many books, so few highlighters...)

    Dhalgren by Samuel R. Delany



    I read that years ago and lost my copy. About all I can remember is a weapon called the orchid ... and some kinky sex. What the heck was it about?

    I'm not sure that anyone -- perhaps even Delany -- knows for sure.

    But I like the non-linear stream of consciousness style, the poetic imagery, and the apparent metafiction qualities. I think this was the first "experimental" novel I read (about 25 years ago), and the idea that it could be so engrossing without making absolute sense was intriguing to me.

    Recently I liked 'Da vinci code'. Looking forward to the movie that is coming this summer.

    Wow, its hard to narrow it down to a small list. Besides, my list probably changes every couple of months depending upon what I've read recently! I can't pick favourites, but here's a selection of some good books I've read recently.

    Red Mars - Kim Stanley Robinson
    Dune - Frank Herbert
    The Dispossessed - Ursula Le Guin
    A Short History of Nearly Everything - Bill Bryson
    A Brief History of Time - Stephen Hawking
    Homage To Catalonia - George Orwell
