I do not intend at this stage to compile a list of great Books. It would be too much of a task. During my life many many wonderful Books have given me insights, comfort, information, philosophy, questions, answers, and entertainment. Turn off your television, shut down your computer and read a book!
But I have encountered only two books – or rather two sets of books, that contain everything one needs to know in order to be a good human being. Books that acknowledge Evil, and encourage Good. Books that show the importance of honesty, integrity, loyalty, trust, devotion, love and duty, courage, humour, humility, family, friendship, humanitarianism, racial tolerance and religious freedom. Without any self-contradiction.
I speak not of the Bible, which is far too inconsistent to have any value on the whole as source of role model material. Nor the Torah, Koran, Tao or any other religious tract.
