Default ridiculously good books

I thought it might be interesting to have a must read thread. Books that will change your life etc.
I'll start
Sun Tzu's The Art Of War

The concepts of this book can be used in every aspect of life.
For example a single random excerpt
' Your enemy tries to sue for peace but without offering a treaty.
He is plotting.'

I highly recommend it. I've read it multiple times. Amazing incite in the book. The man was a true genius.

End the Fed by Ron Paul (whether you like his politics or not)....he has some great points in his books.

His principles are thought at West Point and most every other military school. Somethings never change, human nature most especially.
