Marcello Mastroianni, who drank 50 cups of coffee a day and was described by his costar and friend Sophia Loren as "the laziest man I ever met." My hero.

Golly, I hate to get all, like, serious and stuff, but a book I'd recommend to anyone is The Traveler's Gift, by Andy Andrews. I hate self-help books, but this one literally changed my life. I've purchased and given to friends and acquaintances over 100 copies of this book in the last three or four years. It's a quick read, and really helped me get sh** straight in my head. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/078...Fencoding=UTF8

Catch-22, the book _not_ the movie. A hilarious read that taught me bureaucracies were made to be circumvented and there is always a way to bend the rules, if you're creative enough.

The Grapes of Wrath - My favorite

The Great Gatsby (F. Scott Fitzgerald)

And every book I have read about my fathers unit in vietnam. He has never told me one story except about the animals they encountered over there. Meaning the wildlife not the enemy.

Never Without Heroes : 3d reconnaissance (Lawrence Vetter)

This book is a great read about Marines that operated miles from help and often walked into their patrol zones as helicopters were too loud/obvious.

Great reads.
