Books for Easter (1)

The Modern Mind: An Intellectual History of the 20th CenturyWe used to think of the 20th century as the era of the two devastating wars, or the time of communism and nazism and their massacres. But they were also writers, scientists, painters, philosophers, musicians in this century. These people also changed the world forever and gave the most important mind creations of the modern times. The Modern Mind  is a splendid narration of the best part of the 20th, the creative one. Very stimulating reading, if you can forget the awful cover...I skipped trading in the last days to read this, 850 refreshing pages..a shower for the mind..

I love reading books because it gives me understanding of many things that I might not otherwise understand. I am doing trading and for this I need my mind to be pro-active and shape so thanks to quality books I am able to keep my mind really active and sharp and using OctaFX broker for trading makes my journey thrilling given that I often participate in their Champion demo contest with mind boggling prize of 500 USD so all this combined makes me really skillful trader.
