I can shape your views on capitalism: Capitalism is best. There is nothing better than capitalism.

Starting asoiaf is not worth it when we don't even know whether 6 or 7 are ever going to be released. There is lots of fantasy that is just as good and with a completed story.

The books that have been released already are really nice. I'd read them all again if I had time
2021-04-29 17:09

I also quite like them, but I wouldn't recommend them because most readers want their stories to have an ending. Can't guarantee that with asoiaf. Whenever someone wants a fantasy recommendation, I recommend the malazan books, those are phenomenal
2021-04-29 17:12

That's true. I guess that's why Tolkien is such a great success, besides the writing skills, the ending of his stories were always gold.

2021-04-29 18:08
Eh, i would say The malazan book of the Fallen is a better choice, since it is completed (over asoiaf)

Look up Asimov. He has written some great sci-fi. And also Philip K. Dick, lots of movies based on his work. But there is lots of great books. You could start with the classics like Shakespeare. Arthur Conan Doyle, George Orwell. Jules Verne, Brett Easton Ellis... to name just some names.

thhis is my problem with self-help books and people like jordan peterson: they tell you to take responsibility (which is a good thing) but this is not the whole message. they imply that all your problems are your own fault. 'extreme ownership' my ass, many suffer from corruption, bad governments, rediculous inequality in economic systems etc. sure, you should take responsibility, but the message is political too. just pay attention to that. also think about this: is the focus on your own life really beneficial? are you just busy living your own solo life? or do you strive to be a good parent/friend/sibling? when i was 16 i thought i was fundamentally alone, but thats bullshit, you are always with others. what you should try to do, in my opinion, is understand as much as you can recent history (last 100 years), current society, philosophy and natural science. try to understand why some countries are poor and others rich, why some countries have war all the time while others are safe, etc. also, when you are done 'taking extreme ownership' and applying your 12 rules every day, think about what you want to be in relation to others, what it means to be a good person in relationships. self-help books are a phase and focus only on you.

thanks for the advice men, i was struggling alot with confidence and a lot of insecuritys so these books i've read has deffo helped me with that. However, i get your point about that they can indeed be to over the moon in some areas.

2021-04-29 19:40
"they imply that all your problems are your own fault". This kind of message is really common in "self-help" books and it's really toxic, accepting that you have no control over some things is necessary. In general self-help books tend to have a lot of bullshit and getting professional help is a better option (sadly it's more expensive too)

The guns of August is a good book about the start of the war, it's centered on the first month of the war All Quiet on the Western Front is a classic novel, is a journal of a german soldier during the war, so you're more into the action.
