THAT LIVES FOREVER!
THE ART OF WAR by Sun Tzu
This book teaches how to deal with con-
flict honourably and wisely. Compiled more
than two thousand years ago by a myste-
rious warrior-philosopher, The Art of War
still applies to today's world, giving advice
on how to deal with competition and con-
flict in general, on every level from the in-
terpersonal to the international.
THE PRINCE by Niccolo Machiavelli
The Prince is a 16th-century political
treatise by the Italian diplomat and politi-
cal theorist Niccolò Machiavelli. The Prince
is sometimes claimed to be one of the first
works of modern philosophy, especially
modern political philosophy. Although rela-
tively short, it is the most remembered of
Machiavelli's works and the one most re-
sponsible for bringing the word "Machi-
avellian" into usage as a derogatory term.
ATLAS SHRUGGED by Ayn Rand
Atlas Shrugged evokes impassioned re-
sponses because it grapples with the fun-
damental problems of human existence
and presents radically new answers. It is
Ayn Rand's last novel and is a dramatiza-
tion of her unique vision of existence and
of man's highest potential.
CATCH-22 by Joseph Heller
This is a satirical novel set during World
War II. It is frequently cited as one of the
greatest literary works of the twentieth
century. The book uses third person narra-
tive to describe events from the points of
view of different characters. Catch-22 is
based on Joseph Heller's personal experi-
ence in World War II and embodied the
feelings many had toward the Vietnam
War. The phrase Catch-22 is now used to
refer to explain away negative situations.
EAT LIKE A MAN by Ryan D'Agostino
Esquire food editor Ryan D'Agostini's of-
fers a male-centric collection of mouth-
watering recipes for men who love to eat
and cook. This cookbook is a guide to the
kind of food men dream of.
FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS
by Ernest Hemingway
This novel tells the story of Robert Jor-
dan, a young American in the International
Brigades during the Spanish Civil War. The
novel is regarded as one of Hemingway's
best works. The character was inspired by
Hemingway's own experiences in the war
as a reporter for an American newspaper.
Camaraderie, sacrifice, political ideology
and bigotry are themes explored in the
THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY
by Oscar Wilde
This is an example of Gothic fiction from
the 19th century. Dorian Gray is the sub-
ject of a full-length portrait in oil by Basil
Hallward, an artist who is impressed and
infatuated by Dorian's beauty; he believes
that Dorian's beauty is responsible for the
new mode in his art as a painter. Through
Basil, Dorian meets Lord Henry Wotton,
and he soon is enthralled by the aristo-
crat's hedonistic worldview: that beauty
and sensual fulfilment are the only things
worth pursuing in life. Understanding that
his beauty will fade, Dorian expresses the
desire to sell his soul, to ensure that the
picture, rather than he, will age and fade.
His wish is granted.
