Factfulness - ten reasons we're wrong about the world, and why things are better than you think. Hans Rosling.
Amazing book, a real eye-opener I think.

I’ve read 1984 and saw the movie. Obviously I’m a fan of the dystopian based novels lol but I will def check the rest. I have heard some good things about the “WE” book though.....by Zamyatin

I like The Prince too! :five:

My suggestions are:
- The Art of War by Sun Tzu (this one and The Prince are similar)
- Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
- Candide by Voltaire
- Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury (short and awesome dystopian novel)
- Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
- anything by John le Carre

Ok great point taken!!!! I would also suggest reading a clockwork orange!!!! The movie avoids the far cry stigma associated with most movie vs book scenarios and actually is very good.
