    It's not exactly a book, but Gödel's proof of the incompleteness theorem is a pretty impressive work of exposition.

    Yes! One of the best books I have ever read. Did you read the others in the very loose "trilogy?" One is about a completely different guy, and the third is both the the main characters from Brotherhood of the Rose and Fraternity of the Stone. I think it is called A League of For and Night, or something like that. Brotherhood and Fraternity are phenomenal.

    Here are my favorite books. I personally believe these are all timeless. I never put a book on my "favorite" list unless I know it will never be removed.

    Science Fiction
    Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein
    Gateway by Frederik Pohl

    Fiction
    The Godfather by Mario Puzo
    Timeline by Michael Crichton
    Survivor by Chuck Palahniuk
    The Giver by Lois Lowry
    Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk
    Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson
    Brotherhood of the Rose

    Fantasy
    The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan
    Lone Wolf series by Joe Dever

    Philosophy/Values
    Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert Persig
    Ishmael by Daniel Quinn
    The Alchemist by Paulo Coehlo

    Great thread. I almost love getting book recommendations more than I like reading them!

    Yeah, I didn't realize it either. It's a very loose trilogy, if you can even call it that. The "second" book has absolutely nothing to do with Brotherhood, and no overlap at all. They are the same style with the former spy/assassin, and then the "third" book has characters from the previous two in it; so, I believe they are all individual stories, and don't need to be read in any particular order.

    I liked most of Michael Crichton's books (he died a few weeks ago) especially "Sphere"

    I also like Arthur C. Clarke
