The first book club call (50th Law) went really well and we are going to continue.
The book for May is Hannibal and Me.
If you want to join, please let us know.
UPDATE: Here are the notes we took during the call. Contact us if you would like to discuss any of the concepts.
As Sebastian has said (I am paraphrasing) "don't just read books; apply its' principles to your life, and discuss them with other people."
One of the best books for strategy/mindset is The 50th Law, by Robert Greene and 50 Cent.
OBVIOUS DISCLAIMER: I am not a doctor, so please research this on your own.
I found out about the original racetam (Piracetam) via Sebastian's blog. I have taken it for two months now, 1600mg 3 to 4 days a week, with good results.
Starting Tuesday, I will take the 1600 mg and one capsule of Pramiracetam together. I can't verify any of this, but I have read that Pramiracetam is the strongest and can even have positive effects AFTER you stop taking it.
I bought it from an online store that ships internationally. Next week I will update with results.
Has anybody else taken the Pramiracetam plunge?
Last month, the book club tackled Alexander the Great. An impressive military leader, he nearly had the whole world under his rule before dying at a young age. A supreme strategist, Alexander conquered many territories and tribes that were considered impossible to take over.
The Macedonian ruler would do anything to advance his life's goal of world domination. His one-track mind had many consequences with his family, soldiers, and even ancestors that were allies of his in previous generations. Alexander was most likely gay, although sexual orientation was not a distinction made in those times.
This month, we will read about Augustus, the first emperor of the Roman empire. By a lucky coincidence, the etymology of the word (and current month) August:
eighth month, 1097, from Latin Augustus (mensis), sixth month of the later Roman calendar, renamed from Sextilis in 8 B.C.E. to honor emperor Augustus Caesar, literally "Venerable Caesar" (see august (adj.)). In England, the name replaced native Weodmonað "weed month."
Let's tie in Augustus to Alexander the Great.
