Topic: Recommend a book

I'm not sure if there has been a thread like this before, so if there isn't already, there is now.

The concept is simple, recommend a book, and try to give a little explanation as to why, optional, but it helps.

I'll start with a few (don't have time to explain, or why atm, but I'll be back later)


1. Memories, Dreams, Reflections - C. G. Jung
2. Crime and Punishment - Friedrich Nietzche
3. America (The Book) - Jon Stewart
4. 1984 - George Orwell

That's it for now, I have plenty I'd love to share, but I'll let you guys share a few first.

Convientional morality is a sign of slavery.

I don't get the point? One of your books is supposed to help us programming with Ruby and/or Rails?

Re: Recommend a book

I would strictly recommend Ruby Cookbook

Re: Recommend a book

It's the general forum, it could just be books that you enjoy and would like to share with people.

For values of Nietzsche that approach Fyodor Dostoevsky. #tongue#

I recommend the classic "Godel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid" to all my fellow geeks.


Cheers,

Haha, no. Just a book you've enjoyed that you think others might like.
