Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.
I have been reading Le coeur à pire et à pleurer recently. As for what I do while reading, I tend to like listening to music.
Used to work night shifts stocking groceries so I had nothing but time to listen to audiobooks, and still listen to them sometimes when working on 3D models. Heard a ton (along with some Great Courses lectures), but here are the books I'd say that stood out the most:
The Disaster Artist
Ready Player One
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck
The Cubs Way
Books in general is another story (no pun intended heheh).. I'd have to say off the top of my head -
Lord of the Rings
Game of Thrones/Song of Ice and Fire
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep
Sword of Shannara
Black Sun Rising
"We hold these truths t-be self-ful evident. All men and women created by the.. Go-you know the.. you know the thing!" - Joe Biden
The Final Empire (I heavily recommend this)
The Martian audiobook is absolutely awesome. Imagine twice the science and jokes as the movie with a highly talented narrator that brings even more life to some of the characters than the movie did (the entire Hermes crew, Vincent Kapoor, Mitch Henderson, Mindy Park, Bruce Ng, Annie Montrose).
I've heard it so many times I can recite all 11 hours of it.
You can play a sample here.
Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."
Recently listened to August Kubizek's book "Adolf Hitler, My Childhood Friend". Fascinating stuff!
Love the opening to this video btw. Wagner's 'Tristan und Isolde' played alongside the sight and sound of a camera reel spinning.
The numbers popping up on screen as we are about to delve into the young lives of two people...

Hmm, I would but the whole idea of humanizing Hitler brings a little vomit into my mouth. Anyway, I'd reckon the whole thing can be summed up with Handlebarz by Flobots in a much more fun presentation.
Also, that narrator could put a Sloth to sleep never mind having that score in the background, I mean, has anyone actually made it through this presentation without falling asleep just once, lol.

>Hitler was as human as the rest of us. Makes the whole topic all the more frightening and should serve as a warning against extremism.
"Anyway, I'd reckon the whole thing can be summed up with Handlebarz by Flobots in a much more fun presentation."
>Fun presentation but there's nothing like the real thing. Kubizek and Hitler's teen years were as usual as our own except instead of video games, they loved going to symphonies and operas. It's how they met. That's what I found especially striking in Kubizek's book: Hitler and Kubizek were little different than teens today who love to draw or play video games.

>I imagine sloths are already lethargic creatures to begin with so it can't be too hard to make them sleep...
"I mean, has anyone actually made it through this presentation without falling asleep just once, lol."
>I have. How could I not!? The book transported me back 100 years and put me in the shoes of Hitler's teenage friend.
