You know the old question - if you knew you were going to be stranded on a desert island what three books would you like to have with you? Have you ever tried to narrow it down to just three? I would find that very very hard, there's so many books that I love.
Today I'm reminded of the time a couple of years ago when I came across a LiveJournal entry created by Violet from Liverpool, who, in trying to explain how diverse her interests are said this about the three books she likes to keep around:
normally on my desk i have copy's : # the art of war (Sun Tzu) # the prince (Machiavelli) and # imagining the ten dimensions (Rob Bryanton)And there's this blogger from Singapore who was celebrating the arrival of their birthday wish list for these three books:
The books are The Art Of Deception by Kevin Mitnick, Imagining The Tenth Dimension by Rob Bryanton and A Brief History Of Time by Stephen Hawking. PURE AWESOMENESS!!Hey, what can I say? I'm human and it makes me amazed and proud when people say things like this. Now. here's a very short video someone posted to Youtube a couple of days ago that tickled my ego for the same reason. The video is called "3 books that could (possibly) change your life":

A few weeks ago I went out on Bit Torrent to see how my book is doing there: it appears that almost 100,000 people have downloaded copies of the pdf version of my book now! Isn't that amazing? That would put me on the New York Times Best Seller list if these weren't all free downloads. I trust that there's lots of people out there who are getting some entertainment and having their minds opened to new possibilities as they look at all those downloaded copies. And just a reminder, if you'd like to purchase your own copy of the book in either hard cover or soft cover you can get it at my store, or you can download a pdf from my digital items store.
Enjoy the journey!
