Someone recently recommended a book called "The power of now" by Eckhart Tolle.

Anyone have any experiences with it?

Is The Prime Ministers an enjoyable read? Meaning, a page turner.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

It means you can't stop turning pages. The BOOK is a page turner, by FORCING YOU to turn pages, because it's so interesting. A regular book, YOU are the page turner, no ones forcing you.  :)

I was just wondering why you'd want to read that.

He lies about his history. A good read about his early life can be found in the book " A history of the third reich ".

If anyone likes reading about Middle Eastern/Israeli History I can make a list here.

But you must start with The Prime Ministers

One of my favorite books is 'The Glass Castle' by Jeannette Walls.

Can I make a suggestion that when recommending books, if you could please add if it's non-fiction or fiction, for people like me who only read non-fiction.
