That's just how Chuck and his friends roll, I guess.

My husband has a copy of Gene Simmons' autobiography, Kiss and Make Up. Gene is very high on himself but it's entertaining nevertheless. and he had the good taste to name his daughter Sophie.

Alright just to bump this back up- I'm going to suggest some random books on different subjects.

If you like adventure/mountain climbing books a lot of people have heard of Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air and it is a good book but I would strongly recommend Antoli Boukreev's book The Climb which is about the same disaster on Mt. Everest. In Krakauer's book, as a writer and non-professional climber, he placed a lot of blame on Boukreev but if you read The Climb you can see that Jon was way off on his assessment of what happened.

Touching the Void by Joe Simpson is an amazing book which has one the hardest and most difficult decision that a human book can make when it comes to saving their own life and ending another's. Really easy read but a great story.

Endurance: Shackleton's Incredible Voyage by Alfred Lansing is only very partially a climbing book and more of a survival story but an incredible story nonetheless. The are several books on this story.

For the people who like the movie 300- personnally I despised the movie) I would strongly suggest reading Steven Pressfield's The Gates of Fire. It is a fictional account of the battle but Pressfield is a great historical writer and this a much much telling of the battle and isn't a grossly warped hack job history telling that is 300. Paul Cartledge has also written a few books on Spartan life and Ancient Greece history, I have most of his books but the only two I've read so far are The Spartans: The World of the Warrior-Heroes of Ancient Greece and Thermoplyae and the Battle that Changed the World.

I'm rereading Dog is my Copilot by a bunch of different writers like Ann Patchett, Erica Jong, Alexandra Styron and Bill Vaughn. Not all literary luminaries, but all dog owners and dog lovers. And I have to pick up State of the Art Taekwondo by Sun Chul and Jun Chul Whang, ass kicking twin brothers who have produced a fairly comprehensive work.

So I've been reading this book called " How To Raise A Modern Day Night ". Its a really cool book on a fathers role in raising his son to manhood.

It takes a look back on the way that Knights were raised from childhood with the code of chivalry. Each boy was put through a specific process that guided them on there way to becoming a knight. The author applies these principles and the process to modern times. I'm really enjoying it and the book has some really great ideas that I would never have thought of.

Props to you for raising what I'm sure is and will be a great kid. I'm raising two princesses to understand and implement bushido with every step.
