  1. Oh my god… I’m lost. The only one I’ve heard of(and read) is “A beautiful mind”, and I highly recommend it – although it’s NOT easy, either mathematically or emotionally.

  2. Yeah!!! My dadddy strongest ๐Ÿ™‚I am just gonna go ahead and buy any 5 at random ๐Ÿ˜‰ thanks for help.Aakhir kahin toh kuch kaam aayi tu ๐Ÿ™‚ >hint hint<

  3. Only one I have heard of (and seen the movie with the same name)is A Beautiful Mind. But I think ‘Autobiography of a Fugitive Negro’ (if it is about slavery) might be worth reading too.

  4. @Santoz : I guess u r the one in need of help…Thanks to you, I got a wonderful list of BooksHow about you just take ur dad out for shopping (Window shopping for the record) …First make a note of the TOP book(S) he notices/LIKES…SURPRISE him… that u actually got him there to buy booksOr even tell him and take him(even if there is no element of surprise, I am sure he will be DOUBLY glad for the time together and the BOOKS)

    Guess what ๐Ÿ™‚ A Beautiful Mind is the downright winner, given it is the only book everyone I know, including me, has read!

  6. The only book I have read the Fifth Miracle – it is a good read and I liked it. The only other one I heard of is, of course, A Beautiful Mind – haven’t read the book, though. Just seen the movie.

  7. Well, now that fathers day is gone and you dont need the suggestion anymore, I take the advantage to paste them in my “yet to read” list with one or two exceptions.Thanks.
