Confused as to why people are still adding to a thread that Wombat started over 3 years ago and has probably forgotten about, or more likely gave up on due to the books being recommended. Not to mention the fact that none of the more recent additions bear any resemblence to the authors in the OP.

Candle in the Mirror by Erin Altrama is a good read.

Read 'Thunder in the Park', the story of Tom Wheatcroft who was a real character and who restored Donington Park racing circuit after WW2.
Also read 'No Angel: The Secret Life of Bernie Ecclestone', the story of the billionaire owner of Formula 1 and how he came to dominate the running of the sport. You would be wise to respect him, but are unlikely to like him as he was ruthless with those who failed to meet his exacting demands!
Another good read is, 'Surely You're Joking Mr Feynman: Adventures of a Curious Character'. Tales about the brilliant, but eccentric Mathematician and Nobel prize winning Theoretical Physicist who whilst adding greatly to our understanding of Quantum Mechanics also loved to play the bongos and crack safes much to the annoyance of his colleagues!
Finally, read 'Pale Blue Dot' by Carl Sagan an icon of Cosmology. Simply staggering in its depth and capacity to inspire awe in a way that religion cannot ever hope to do.

From the "Important Announcement From Amazon" topic.

"With the advent of the new community [Meet Our Authors], we will no longer allow self-promotional posts in other communities. Starting on December 15, 2011, all "shameless self-promotion" activity will be limited to the `Meet Our Authors' community."

Please stop spamming publicity for your book. It's both unwelcome and against Amazon rules.
