Would reccomend

2018-08-08 20:57:30 UTC  

I've actually wanted to get that book...been reading about the Gallic wars lately

2018-08-08 20:57:36 UTC  

unmoderated yay pants off!

2018-08-08 20:57:36 UTC  

U fag

2018-08-08 20:57:56 UTC  

@Darkseid awesome! You read Caesar's own version or Tacitus?

2018-08-08 21:00:03 UTC  

Market Wizards

Book by Jack D. Schwager

2018-08-08 21:00:18 UTC  

@Kaiser MJ Tacitus, but honestly would like Caesars account even though it's apparently "biased"

2018-08-08 21:00:55 UTC  

Extreme Ownership is also really great

2018-08-08 21:02:10 UTC  

@Darkseid Haha yeah, we don't know for sure, Caesar's own version is only "biased" because his version differed from other, later Roman/Greek historians, but it's good to have his version of events as well and try to remove the "bias" yourself, to do that you must however read Tacitus and the likes of Livy first

2018-08-08 21:08:09 UTC  

Another book I'm interested in is "Fall of the Roman Republic" most Roman history focuses solely on Caesar and onwards...but there was obviously some turmoil before that

2018-08-08 21:14:31 UTC  

Yeah, like SPQR also covers that from Mary Bead

2018-08-08 21:14:54 UTC  

That's honestly the most interesting part of the Roman times

The President's Keepers

Skippy!

if you are into fantasy type novels, you should give Jim Butcher's "Dresden Files" audiobooks a listen. He writes well & James Masters is an awesome narrator.

If you want to know more about the politics/history of Southern Africa, specifically in Zimbabwe, I suggest you read this book. Very enlightening. https://www.amazon.com/Great-Betrayal-Memoirs-Douglas-Smith/dp/1857821769

2018-08-27 14:05:04 UTC  

Thanks, rather am interested in the observations of Zim

2018-09-06 17:57:25 UTC  

I'd recommend it..not for nazi stuff obviously but just for historical context etc.

2018-09-06 18:06:09 UTC  

@Sheamus there is a movie 451 that is about the burning of books because different opinions started a civil war

2018-09-06 18:09:00 UTC  

@Meerkat_RSA yeah and who starts the war? The ones wanting to read different opinions or the ones opposing it?

Same with this land theft going on.. The claim is that we property owners want to start a war, but who's threatening war to take the land? Lol
