    I'm reading ROCKERS!, by Johnny Stuart, detailing the history of the 'ton-up boys' (a.k.a. teddy boys, leather boys, later known as rockers) in England who raced home-built cafe racers in the streets, wore black leather, listened to rock n' roll, fought with the Vespa-riding Mods, and engaged in general hooliganism from the 1950s-70s. Pretty cool stuff, lots of history, lots of pictures of the time, the bikes and the biker hangouts.

    Patriot Games by Tom Clancy. I read it a couple times in high school. It's been a good 15 years since......I forgot how much I liked it.

    Teddy Boys were Bad Azz back in the 60's. They would hang out in Hyde Park in London and try to pick fights with GI's. We butted heads a few times.

    Reading Barbarians At The Gate after seeing the movie.

    Think Better by Tim Hurson. Certainly interesting and up my alley. It's a how-to for thinking outside the box and in a creative manner, mostly for business purposes.

    "The 5,000 Year Leap", The Principals of Freedom 101. A great read about the principals that America was founded on. A great read. How have we come to be so far removed from them?
