A Princess of Mars

by Edgar Rice Burroughs

The Barsoom series are a very enjoyable read. I\'m on the 5th novel now (The Chessmen of Mars) and have just found out that the John Carter movie will be out 2012, can\'t wait.

Most enjoyable!

The Imitation of Christ

by Thomas A Kempis

I don't know what the other person above me said about this book not focusing on the philosophy of Christ. This book does nothing but focus everything on not just the philosophy of Christ but the life of Christ and how to live it.

I was rather overwhelmed when I first read this book and stopped taking notes because every word and sentence took me away as if I got hit by lightning. I own over 40 Christian books and this is my top 5.

Beautiful book and highly recommended to the more mature Christian that wants to get to another level. Warning: You will be humbled.

The Communist Manifesto

by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels

To those who say the ideas expressed in this book are impossible due to 'human nature', you have clearly read this work in isolation. The myth of competition as an inherent part of humanity has been perpetuated by capitalist society despite there being more than adequate evidence for the existence of mutual aid in both human and animal society. This book is a piece of well-written propaganda and very little more. No intelligent scholar or communist has taken this book as a serious intellectual work and it shows a great deal of naivity for any adult to study this piece as a genuine theoretical contribution to communism, sociology or anthropology.
