    Self explanatory.

    Let's hear it.
    I'm currently on "The intelligent investor" by Benjamin Graham and "Modern Iraqi Arabic" by Yasin M. Al Khalesi (yeah, GOT fans.. Yeah. Tis is his name.) while consequently torturing myself with the Defence Language Institute's free Iraqi Arabic course.

    What about you?

    I am learning oil painting. I have done water color and charcoal in the past. Always wanted to learn oil paint. There's no brush as such. One just takes gooey blobs of paint on the knife and deposits it on the canvas.

    I just finished reading this book. So far I consider it the best social psychology book.

    Last read: Moonwalking with Einstein. Great book. 5/5. Gave me enough motivation to memorise all my card numbers.

    Currently reading: Iacocca.

    I bought this in College but somebody borrowed and did not return it. So I bought several years ago 1 more copy for my little library. Anyway, I really enjoyed this heart-wrenching autobiography in smart humor.

    Nice. i read that recently too. Like most of his books it gets a little confusing and leaves too much to interpretation imo.

    reading bruce lipton's biology of belief currently.

    English. Frank McCourt is Irish-American (born in the US to poor Irish immigrants-whole family then returned to Limerick, Ireland -went back to the US alone). So there alone you get an idea of the misery he has undergone in childhoon in Ireland. But the way he presented his story is entertaining while not diluting the hardships he has undergone. He later on scraped enough money to travel to the US where he was able to study and become a University professor. His story is simply inspiring beyond compare.

    If anyone is into small business, I suggest you read this rather old book on smart marketing which the author calls "Guerilla Marketing." I find it very helpful and easy to read and practice.

    About 3 years ago I read this wonderful book entitled "Sapiens" by Yuval Harrari. It's a very riveting read on the history, current and possible future of humans.

    I have a copy of the Intelligent Investor but only read it 1/4th of the way. But I'm not so much into stocks.

    Ironically, I bought a long time ago a copy of the "Art of the Deal." Perhaps I wanted to be a better negotiator...
