One book that I read because of the OG was "Confessions of a Master Jewel Thief" by Bill Mason. Interesting book about crime & fencing. Not practical advice anymore :-(

Old Man's War, enjoyed it. Reading Gemmell right now, so far so good. Have Mark Halperin and Cormac McCarthy on my list based on OG's rec.

Quite a number actually and usually the recommendations have been good. Marck, Dogbert, RoR/RobRPM and a few other posters off the philosophyground and historyground (Glenn Sunshine especially) always have good taste in books. A few random selections: Thomas Barnett's Pentagons New Map and Blueprint for Action. The works of Emile Cioran. Amartya Sens Development as Freedom.
