              La Pelle (The Skin) by Curzio Malaparte. It doesn't really answer to the thread title, no happiness here, but possibly one of the best I've ever... read? No, that wasn't just reading...

                  April Morning by Howard Fast

                  About a boys coming of age at The Battle of Lexington (1775.)

                  I've kind of been on a Revolutionary War kick lately.

                      I like Happiness Is an Inside Job - written by "Sylvia Boorstein". After reading the book I started my career in xxxxxxxxx and from now I'm going up on daily mean improvements.

                        I have read Stumbling on Happiness by Daniel Gilbert. The concept of this book is that how to get happiness even in tough situations. I remembered that my first job at: xxxxxxxxxxxx was disturbing me as I was inexperienced but after reading this book my whole life changed.

                          I read a really good book recently, more intriguing and terrifying than any spy thriller because it was non-fiction/totally true and current. It's about an international cyber criminal enterprise and its creator:

                          The Mastermind: A True Story of Murder, Empire, and a New Kind of Crime Lord

                          by Evan Ratliff

                          Overview

                          The incredible true story of the decade-long quest to bring down Paul Le Roux—the creator of a frighteningly powerful Internet-enabled cartel who merged the ruthlessness of a drug lord with the technological savvy of a Silicon Valley entrepreneur.

                          “A tour de force of shoe-leather reporting—undertaken, amid threats and menacing, at considerable personal risk.”—Los Angeles Times

                          NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times Book Review • NPR • Evening Standard Kirkus Reviews

                          It all started as an online prescription drug network, supplying hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of painkillers to American customers. It would not stop there. Before long, the business had turned into a sprawling multinational conglomerate engaged in almost every conceivable aspect of criminal mayhem. Yachts carrying $100 million in cocaine. Safe houses in Hong Kong filled with gold bars. Shipments of methamphetamine from North Korea. Weapons deals with Iran. Mercenary armies in Somalia. Teams of hit men in the Philippines. Encryption programs so advanced that the government could not break them.

                          The man behind it all, pulling the strings from a laptop in Manila, was Paul Calder Le Roux—a reclusive programmer turned criminal genius who could only exist in the networked world of the twenty-first century, and the kind of self-made crime boss that American law enforcement had never imagined.

                          For half a decade, DEA agents played a global game of cat-and-mouse with Le Roux as he left terror and chaos in his wake. Each time they came close, he would slip away. It would take relentless investigative work, and a shocking betrayal from within his organization, to catch him. And when he was finally caught, the story turned again, as Le Roux struck a deal to bring down his own organization and the people he had once employed.

                          Award-winning investigative journalist Evan Ratliff spent four years piecing together this intricate puzzle, chasing Le Roux’s empire and his shadowy henchmen around the world, conducting hundreds of interviews and uncovering thousands of documents. The result is a riveting, unprecedented account of a crime boss built by and for the digital age.

                            Just finished the "Journal of Nicholas Cresswell 1774 - 1777".

                            Nicholas Cresswell was twenty-four years old when he left his birthplace of Edale, England to sail for Virginia, believing that ""a person with a small fortune may live much better and make greater improvements in America than he can possibly do in England."" From the time he left, sailing from Liverpool in 1774, until the time he returned, he kept a diary detailing his experiences in pre-Revolutionary America. As a loyal subject to King George, Cresswell found himself often unhappy in America, detailing the turmoil and abuses often suffered by Loyalists in the colonies. Confining his travel mainly to the mid-Atlantic region, Cresswell not only had occasion to attend a slave gathering and observe what went on there, but also traded amongst many of the native tribes, including the Lenape, Tuscarora, Ottawa and Shawnee. Despite his ambivalence about returning to England, (toward the end of the book he moans, ""I wish to be at home and yet dread the thought of returning to my native Country a Beggar "" (P. 251)), life in the colonies becomes too much for this loyal subject and Cresswell's journal ends in 1777 with his return to England.
                            Interesting stuff for those interested in old timey stuff like this, especially from an outsiders view.
                            The only negative I have for the book is that I had to keep a glossary handy for some words I've never heard before, and some words which had a different meaning some 300 years ago compared to present time. And whoa boy, some stuff has really changed! Sometimes it makes for good comedy, sometimes it's really confusing. And yea, English is not my 1st language, but even if it was, I'd still go with the glossary.

                            For example: If you went looking for some wild ass with the boys some 300 years ago, you were talking about catching/taming/domesticating animals. Most likely at least.
                            If you and the boys go looking for some wild ass these days, I'd be surprised if you were talking about donkeys. Well, surprised, and shocked. 'Cause you know, most of my pals don't do stuff like that.
                            At least they don't talk about it openly..

                            Anyways, a good book!
