I've queued for considerably longer lengths of time for something I cant mention here for fear of banning and shunning I'm sure you can guess (Dont post it though)

Not mindlessly complicated, just rules of Boards prevent me from mentioning it....

Everyone's mentioning such arsey books. ^^

I'm reading some David Eddings books. Absolutely great crap.

My silly book atm is Tom Holland's new-ish one Millenium. Decent take on the period.

"The Wolf of Wall Street" by Jordan Belfort

Absolutely hilarious, entertaing true story of the man who made millions on Wall Street, and blew it on drink, drugs, prostitutes, helicopters and mansions. Then got prosecuted by the IRS. The opening paragraph of one of the chapters is magnificent:

It was less than five minutes later, and I was sitting in my office behind a desk fit for a dictator, in a chair as big as a throne. I cocked my head to the side, and said to the room's two other occupants, "Now let me get this straight: You guys want to bring a midget in here, and toss his little ass around the boardroom?"
They nodded in unison.


A few paragraphs later....

Danny shrugged his shoulders. "Its not as crazy as it sounds. I mean, its not like we're gonna toss the little bastard in any odd direction. The way I see it, we'd line up wrestling mats at the front of boardroom and give the top five brokers on the Madden deal five throws each. We paint a bullseye at the end of one of the mats, and put down some velcro so the little bastard sticks. Then we pick a few of the hot sales assistants to hold up signs - like they're judges at a diving competition. They can score on throwing style, distance, degree of difficulty - all that sort of sh!t."
