No it is not GZ. It's one of those books where you underline the good parts.

Would you guys say The Tao of Jeet Kune Do would be a good addition to my (small) combat sport related library?

I am reading David Drake's The Mirror of Worlds still. Almost Done with it. I don't get as much time to read with school going on. I have a couple weeks off coming up after this class though so maybe I will get caught up. I just got Chuck Liddell's My Fighting Life and Blood In The Cage by L John Wertheim in the mail off paperbackswap.com. I should be getting Artie Lange's Too Fat To Fish any day now also and can't wait to read it!

DW- I read the Liddell book and it's entertaining and really good when talking about his fights and early career but the writing is god awful. I can't remember the guys name but I think the writer who helped Chuck write that book was a sports writer but it reads like a jr. high sports reporter wrote it. One chapter is 2 paragraphs long.

Tell me when you get to the epic part when Chuck says(paraphasing) "You don't help a friend beat up a guy just because he's going out with/or stalk an ex-girlfriend- that's not right."

Currently reading 3 books.

Zombie Survival guide - Almost finished. When Zombies break loose, come find me and we'll survive together.

World War Z - Because I like the author so much, and plus the book is kinda creepy on how realistic it seems.

Patient Zero - Terrorist create zombies that wreck havoc on the world, and it's up to a super secret government organization to stop it. But the terrorist are too damn smart. Great writing.

That's 3 zombie books guys... 3. And I'm reading them all at the same time.

I just picked up Griffin's "Got fight?". It should be a good read.

Finished The Prestige. Really different from the movie. Entirely so. It's all about this kid in the 20th century who's ancestor was one of the magicians and he's investigating what happened. Then it goes into the magicians' journals and memoirs. It's so well done (but the movie really tightened up the whole story).

Now I'm on to Vampire Zero, the third installment in the vampire series following 13 Bullets and 99 Coffins. Both stories take place in central PA, where I went to school. Scenes in Harrisburg, Gettysburg and Mechanicsburg... lotsa Burgs. Good stuff though. I really recommend (Swp).

I finished Mirror of the Worlds. Great addition to that series. I love his books.

Now I am almost finished with Artie Lange's Too Fat to Fish. A hilarious and depressing read. What a screwed up individual. You have a new found amazement that he is still alive at all after you read it...I don't know what I am going to read next...I have so many to choose from that have been sitting on my shelf waiting.
