Browsing several forums and I see a common thread that I think we should have here: What book are you reading? 

I'm currently reading Be More Pirate: Or How to Take on the World and Win - Sam Conniff Allende and its a very good book. Just started it so I can't detail anymore than the back; 

Pirates didn’t just break the rules, they rewrote them. They didn’t just reject society, they reinvented it. Pirates didn’t just challenge the status-quo, they changed everyf*ckingthing. Pirates faced a self-interested establishment, a broken system, industrial scale disruption, and an uncertain future. Sound familiar?

“I’d rather be a pirate than join the navy.”—Steve Jobs

Pirates stood for MISCHIEF, PURPOSE, and POWER. And you can too.

Be More Pirate unveils the innovative strategies of Golden Age pirates, drawing parallels between the tactics and teachings of legends like Henry Morgan and Blackbeard with modern rebels, like Elon Musk, Malala, and Banksy. Featuring takeaway sections and a guide to building your own pirate code 2.0, Be More Pirate will show you how to leave your mark on the 21st century.

  1. Rebel — Draw strength by standing up to the status quo.
  2. Rewrite — Bend, break, but most importantly, rewrite the rules.
  3. Reorganize — Collaborate to achieve scale, rather than growth.
  4. Redistribute — Fight for fairness, share power, and make an enemy of exploitation.
  5. Retell — Weaponize your story, then tell the hell out of it.

Whatever your ambitions, ideas and challenges, Be More Pirate will revolutionize the way you live, think, and work today, and tomorrow. So what are you waiting for? Join the rebellion.

I hope that's convincing enough! If you share what book you're reading you don't have to go into detail as I just did, thanks in advance.

I am currently struggling with 3 books.

  • The Naked Sun - Isaac Asimov (Robot Series)
  • Thinking in Systems - Donella H Meadows
  • Year of the Black Rainbow - Claudio Sanchez (Coheed and Cambria bands lore)

Plan to go through all of Asimovs stuff that is inter-connected at least. Robot Series - Into Empire - Into Foundation. I highly suggest everything from it, including the short stories from "I, Robot". They are all amazing. Along with the Coheed and Cambria stuff, they have 1 hardcover book, multiple comics and 2 "coffee table" size books. The songs of theirs are more like specific individual events in the lore, so the books/comics tell more.
