Have you ever been here? TED | Talks | List

Bios ......... hmmmmmmmm ......... Depends on your tastes I guess. "Patton" was very good. So was "Lee's Lieutenants :A Study In Command". "RN" was good. (My tastes run to Military/Political History as you can see....). "FDR" was pretty good.

Good fiction? "Stranger In A Strange Land", "Innocents Abroad", "Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas", "LOTR" of course,"Watership Down", "1984", "Neuromancer", "The Forgotten Solider". (By Robert A.Heinlein,Mark Twain,Hunter S. Thompson,J.R.R. Tolkien,Richard Adams,George Orwell,William Gibson,Guy Sajer respectively) (a mix of humor,tragedy,wonder,imagination) Oops! Sorry, "The Forgotten Solider" is a Bio, sorta....... extremely highly recommended.

Best autobio I have read in a long time, and I am a diehard old Stones fan: "LIFE" by Keith Richards. Whether a fan or not, it is a very surprising, fascinating read and he comes across as intelligent, thoughtfull, painfully honest, very, very funny, but often completely bonkers. His early life is very interesting. The interplay and disagreements between Keef and Jagger, is great to read, Mick does not come out of it very well.
