None, because I have no illusions I'm competent, intellectual or egotistical enough that I know what's good for another human being. Much less be the judge of such material for someone else to enrich their lives and the world they live in.

I'm having a good day to wake up and get myself through another day, on this blue marble in space we call home.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.

Thanks Animal.

I was looking forward to something else(more like names of books and your thoughts about them).

But your response was an eye-opener. I still am a small fish compared to both you and other senior friends here at BC and life in general.

I would STILL request other friends who are here at BC to respond to my original request:

What one book would you like to recommend to others;so that they can better their lives and the world around them?

It wouldn't necessarily improve anyone's life, but Voltaire's Candide was a surprisingly good read. It isn't a bunch of philosophical yappity yap either. Just an all around good read (as one of the five people in the world who wasn't forced to read it in college).
If I am helping you and I haven't replied to your thread in 3 days, please PM me or bump it

With all the furore regarding Medicare, I would recommend "Honour a Physician" by Phillip Auld. It is about the start of the British National Health Service. It is a very funny book, and it shows both the advantages of free at the point of delivery medicine, and the the people who take advantage of the system.
