Well folks, I've changed my mind; the best book I've ever read was Project Mind: The Conscious Conquest of Man and Matter Through Accelerated Thought by T. Kun (David S. Devor).
What is life? What is death? What is the secret of the cosmos? Had the great minds of the past found all the answers, would there still be such suffering? The author claims to have found the key to the cosmic riddle and declares open war on death and taxes.
