I will second this if only to hope that more people will read it.

'Snarkiness', as stated above, gets us nowhere.  Constructive criticism is more productive.

I am Barbarossa.  I am a 23 year old disenchanted attempted scholar from Nebraska.  I've been a troll here for quite a while now (5 years off and on) and finally decided to jump on the bridge.

I do not know at all what you are interested in besides nonfiction, but I have just started rereading The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli.  It was written in 1513 to an Italian duke and contains great knowledge on how a government is to gain and maintain control.  

I sometimes refer back to the Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu.  I prefer the copy from the publisher Shambhala(may be more than one), because the prose seems most fitting.  It is a personal philosophy that was the beginning of Taoism.

I really enjoy Nietzsche and would suggest Beyond Good and Evil and Thus Spake Zarathustra.

If you are at all interested in fiction work I highly suggest you read Crime and Punishment as the above poster mentioned.  I also really enjoyed Dostoevsky's The Brothers Karamazov; I would even go so far as to call it fairly metal.

Edit:  I just noticed that there is already a thread concerning books in general:  http://www.anus.com/metal/hall/index.php/topic,5729.0.html
