Reading. Sadly, this is an activity that often falls by the wayside in our current cultural climate - since reading a computer screen doesn't count, not by a long-shot - despite the fact that it is perhaps one of the most satisfying things a man can spend his time doing.

Many of the so called classics are overrated, but they do have ideas that can educate a person.
'Candide', by Voltaire, missed the list.
I like reading, but Philosophy classes in school stunk. Kissing the instructor's hind-quarter and agreeing with their interpretation of what a dead author meant. Same with Literature and Humanities and Ethnic Studies classes.
Yep, like the gold nuggets of human wisdom in Shakespeare.

One that is underrated in human insight in my opinion these days is the Bible. Not in a preachy religious way.

The only book in that list of five that I think is worth reading is George Orwell's 1984
Actually, when it was written, "The Prince" was reportedly relied upon as a "how to" book by at least European royalty. Although the ideas in it are very matter of fact and some are moderately brutal, it remains fairly timely today. I understand it is still required reading in some large companies' management training programs.

Narrowing this down to 5 books is silly, IMO. More like 5 books in each major genre.

That's been brought up already. I think it's an excellent read if you want to see some of the underpinnings of our society. The danger is, of course, that some folks treat the bible as being a work of non-fiction instead of the collection of fables and myths that it is.

I think the lowest common denominator is much lower than any of us would like to admit.
Yes, I agree. Only those who face the depths of their dual self understands and choose between what we're each capable of. Being able to do that is the founding stone of civilization. Civilization crumbles, the facade comes down as well.

I did not bring it up in a religious sense. If more people read it for its underpinnings, I think we would have fewer problems.

A book I would most certainly read, one written in the non-fiction category and one that would be composed so well, it would read like a novel. Tom Wolfe comes to mind. He has the right stuff.

"Apocalypse Of The Vanities"
