    "The biggest adversary in our life is ourselves. We are what we are, in a sense, because of the dominating thoughts we allow to gather in our head. All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.”

    Finished Ship Breaker (Paolo Bacigalupi) earlier. It was quite good, not as good as The Windup Girl, but still quite good.

    Now I'm reading Perdido Street Station by China Miéville. Sertainly entertaining and imaginative so far.

    I've going to finish reading the Hungry City Chronicles, by Phillip Reeve. I read the first some time ago and really enjoyed it. I just downloaded the second book of the quartet to my Kindle for reading.



    The series is set in a far-flung future, hundreds of years after a superweapon destroyed the Earth in what is known as 'The Sixty Minute War'. What's left is remnants of societies functioning in the ruins of civilization, surviving by using old technology in their own innovative ways. The world is a shadow of what is was before, with clues of the events that lead to its destruction. I really like it, and I've heard the books get more mature and darker as they progress.

    It's been a while since I've read the books but I remember them being really good.

    Richard Bachman - The Running Man



    It's amazing at how different this really is to the film. If they remade it and make it accurate to the book, it would mostly be a completely different film!

    Time to give my latest update, since I'm sure you've all been waiting anxiously!




    The greatest strength of this book is also its greatest weakness. Jesse provides all the actual documents for you to read, which provides the controversies straight from the source, but you'll also spend time reading through much of the document before reaching the section that's actually interesting. It's important to understand the context of what you're reading though, so I respect Jesse's decision even if it made for less entertaining reading.






    This book analyses all the different aspects of near-death experiences and provides explanations on which parts of the brain are responsible, and more importantly, this book provides possible real-world explanations for each aspect (EX: tunnel vision, bright light, out-of-body, etc). What I appreciated most was the author's open mind, withholding from outright endorsing or denying true spiritual experiences, but rather simply explaining how the brain works during those experiences. The one weakness of this book might not be a weakness for you, but I felt this book delved a bit too deeply into the scientific explanations.






    An entertaining and surprising read, but nothing that will transform your life. People involved in show business tend to write more interesting autobiographies primarily due to the interesting people they come across, and this is no exception. The most surprising aspect is regarding the mental health issues Hammond went through, including self-inflicted cuts, mental hospital stays, and various drug uses.






    This takes various ancient spiritual teachings and condenses the message into one modernized, easy-to-understand book. The primary message is to observe your mind instead of being your mind, to be present in the moment, to be at peace instead of looking to external influences, etc. Basically, the idea is to apply the principals of meditation to your general being. This book can definitely help you look at your life in a new, positive way. There's nothing new being taught, since Tolle himself explains that his message goes back to ancient Buddhism and Christianity, among others. So just treat this book for what it is; a summarized message in a modern package.






    Well-researched, seemingly unbiased, and even quite humorous. This book analyses the history on how the nutritional paradigms came to be through the years. The author essentially cuts through the BS and deduces the general diet practices that all successful diets include and exclude. The author does spend a lot of time pointing out the various flaws in many scientific studies, so your enjoyment will depend somewhat on your interest in the scientific nitty gritty. With that said, I definitely recommend this book if you're at all interested in your diet.






    My next book.

    I've been reading my own book if that makes any sense. Reading, re-reading, and editing it for a January release.
