The Narcissism Epidemic by Jean Twenge and W. Keith Campbell, PHd.

Really clues you in to the MAJOR F'N issues in American Culture today and their root causes.

The Forward and Intro alone will open your eyes.

I suggest anybody read it.

I read that shit, he's right, it's good.

If you want some good reads, try these 2 by a guy named Peter Singer:

One World: The Ethics of Globalization
The Live You Can Save

Also, I just got done reading "Man and His Gods" by Homer Smith.

I just finished Mr. Slaughter by Robert McCammon (third part in his Mathew Corbett series)
Then I read Blaze by Stephen King (one of the Bachman books) and now i am reading King's Lisey's Story

I need to get some new things to read as I have ran through just about everything I own.

Flow by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. A book that is changing my life, or at the very least, explaining it.

The Time Paradox - Philip Zimbardo and John Boyd

Interesting read on the philosophy of time, how we interact with it, and the consequences it has on our lives.

Also reading "Shadow Box" by George Pimpleton. So far a good read about the sport with a funny author.
