in need of a good book

Discussion in 'General' started by negligent, Mar 3, 2004.

  1. welp i figure i'ma be locked up for awhile, so i'm in need of a good book to read, preferably having to do with psychadelics or psychology, not like a novel type thing more of sumthin i can read and learn from that wont bore me either..

    heres the word i'm lookin for... mind expanding books

    anyone know of any good books like that?
  2. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
  3. wow, y the hell didnt i think of that!! haha. i liked the movie n i heard the books a whole lot better, may have to go for that.
  4. Fight Club,good book.
  5. Well i dunno if its what ur lookin for but I read a really good book called Fallen angels about peeps goin to the vietnam war

    its a really good book... eh its only about 300 pages

  6. damn, i was just thinking about that book, like.. i love the movie so much, i've watched it so many times.. and i was going into this thread thinking about it, now im def gonna go and get it...

  7. I dunno if you want to read a book like that in prison, you kinda get labeled, and you might not want to be labeled under "skin head nazi".. unless your into that...
  8. The Art of Deception by Kevin D. Mitnick is good. It's basically how to lie to get what you want. it's about Social Engineering. it's a great way to learn to lie, but it helps if your technologically able.
  9. For Whom the Bell Tolls
    i'm just a person who like hemmingway though
  10. Any book by Micheal Moore. That will expand your mind on all the bullshit that goes on in the world.
  11. Building on the Hemingway theme, I'd suggest The Sun Also Rises.

    If you haven't read Kerouac's On The Road, however, read it first.

    Also, just about everything that J.D. Salinger wrote is excellent. Everyone's read The Catcher In The Rye, but it seems that many people forget about Franny and Zooey. It's better.

    I could keep this up for hours. If you want more suggestions, just say so. :)
  12. The author of fight club, chuck palhaniuk or something has some better books, choke and survivor are both good reads.
  13. nah, no prison, inpatient rehab, its the same thing in my opinion though, locked in a building. still waiting for the guy to call me n say when i gotta go. hopefully at least not for another week....

  14. Philip K. Dick did a lot of psychedelic themed books. My screenname comes from the Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch where a creature comes to earth and it reproduces through little Can-D pills. These pills that contain a psychedelic lichen allow its users to be a part of the alien creature's consciousness and in turn the creature can inhabit that person's body at whim. Meanwhile there is a company on Earth that makes a similar product for bored colonist but its a true trip drug and not a metaphysical connection.

    The Doors of Perception and Heaven and Hell by Aldous Huxley is a good nonfiction read too.

  15. jus bought that at the book store actually, that was my final decision on a book to read...
  16. Oh yeah its not really phsycadellic but Reefer Madness is a new political book about the black market i.e. weed industry, porn industry, and immigrant workers. It is amazing all the crap the goverment does in this country.
