    I would suggest reading "Catch me if you can" by Frank Abagnale and "Other People's Money" by Elliot Castro. Both Con Artists, and while they used their confidence the wrong way, a lot can still be learnt about being confident...

  4. There is an Orthodox Christian monastery in eastern New York state that has a worldwide reputation in dog training. My friend swears by their books.

    The Art of Raising a Puppy, by the Monks of New Skete

    Krugman has pretty much been spot on through the recession, along with other guys like Robert Shiller. I've yet to see an alternative to democracy. A libertarian society has never existed on earth for long because humans naturally seize power. Just like we all want to seize the HBs from the masses!

    I love reading all ends of the spectrum though. No one owns the truth brother.

    The Power of Words is a fantastic book and very relevant to PUA.

    If Krugman has been "spot on," what has, say, Peter Schiff been?

    I've yet to see an alternative to democracy.
    (1) What about all the other political forms and arrangements that have existed?

    (2) Hoppe does not go after every democratic element or idea. What he critiques is democracy in the universalist, de-nationalizing form it has increasingly taken in recent history. Democracy has taken a variety of forms among peoples at different times. One has to be highly particular about what "democracy" is taken to mean at any given time.

    A libertarian society has never existed on earth for long because humans naturally seize power.
    I'm not a libertarian. OH LAWDY what a libertarian I am not! Libertarianism is another instance of the naive liberal hope, that there are no wolves and everyone will behave like sheep and get along. However, certain libertarians, and certain forms of libertarian thought (particularly in economics) have revealed worthwhile things. Libertarianism was just the first station stop on my trip rightward.

    Is this book similar to Galdwell's Outliers? That talks about being in the right place at the right time with enough practice anyone can reach amazing potential?

    Just got it. Can't wait to listen to it. Sounds pretty interesting!
    03) The New Psychology of Achievement (whole book not abridged): http://www.amazon.com/New-Psychology.../dp/0743583442
    Is it like Psycho Cybernetics by Maxwell?

    I have Get anyone to do anything, it was good, a lot of PUA gurus recommend it, i thought it was a good sales book too.

    I read about 2 books a week. Right now going through something by teaching company: Great Ideas of Psychology: http://www.teach12.com/tgc/courses/c...l.aspx?cid=660 I thought I would be impressed but I have not. I am not exactly giving it the fairest of shots though.

    I started reading this book and recommended it to many of my female friends. I think this book is amazing (so far) in order to understand women psychology. It's very useful for parents that have daughters, but it's good for pickup too. I am almost through entire thing, definitely a MUST READ. Just by reading this book, many questions like "Why is she acting/doing this way?" can be understood. I found it good to explain those unexplainable behavior patterns young women exhibit in dating. It's pretty good book.

    +1 true that. I've wasted a lot of time not following this advice, and ended up re-reading some books again.

    There is an excellent book on our human attitudes towards mates called "Why is Sex Fun? By Jared Diamond whom also wrote "Guns, Germs and Steel" which basically changed my entire outlook on the world. Excellent reads.

    Stephen Kings new book of long short stories; Full Dark, Not stars is an excellent read.

    It's not his normal style of writing (by that I mean the horror he's most famous for) and is more like his novels The Shawshank Redemption and Stand By me.

    It really get's more into the characters head and this, in my opinion, makes the experience very rich and vivid. So vivid infact that you'll swear you're the character.

    The book itself deals with normal people in extraodinary situations and is pulled off with such finesse that books of this type to shame. It's an awesome read, so good I could barely put it down!
