    I would think Cormac would be big in weightlifting circles. high-literature and high-testosterone, a classical landscape painter and tragedian that never feels like work to read.

I stumbled on this https://altis.world/articles/coach-s...books-of-2016/ on facebook (I follow him on facebook and though he's a track and field guy he posts a lot of insightful stuff about training and coaching) and decided that this year I'd do more reading and spend some time leveling up my real world persona as opposed to leveling up video game characters. Burned through a couple of gift cards and now I have a stack of books to keep me occupied for a while, once I finish Mike Tyson's Undisputed Truth that I got for Christmas (boy did he have a fucked up childhood). Hopefully I remember to come back here and comment on the good ones. In the meantime, if anybody likes military sci fi:

    Dune by Frank Herbert (everything Dune after this was alright, but this one was excellent)
    Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card (much better than the movie in my opinion)
    Starship Troopers by Robert Heinlein (not much like the movie, much better)
    The Forever War by Joe Haldeman
    Old Man's War by John Scalzi

    Very good book so far.

    Good luck with Zarathustra. I recently finished Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil. It was worthwhile but not an easy read...ended up supplementing with some online interpretive essays for assistance.

    Been re-reading Breakfast of Champions and The Brothers Karamazov recently, interesting duality on free will and morality even though the two books couldn't be topically further from each other.
