    I just finished read a book called "The Panama Papers".

    It shows clear evidence how the rich elites choose whether to pay tax or not and how some rip off and exploit the poor.

    Not recently, but...

    Losing my Virginity - Richard Branson's autobiography.
    Take it like a man - Boy George's autobiography.

    Both good, but if you can only do one then I would recommend losing your virginity over taking it like a man. Due to Virgin records there's a bit of a cross over between them.

    Wow, non-fiction recommendations for once!!! Awesome.

    I've just added several books to my "must buy" list.

    Myself, I haven't read anything for a-g-e-s but I am (still) part way through "Extreme Money: The Masters of the Universe and the Cult of Risk" by Satyajit Das.

    I bought this - it's an amazing read. Thankyou - Chapter One

    I recommend you buy it - you can pay what you want, and Daniel Flynn's story is very inspiring.

    I started reading a novella put out by Sensis - a bit of a who's who, romantic spy novel. I fell asleep part way through the credits which lists every character in alphabetical order including their address and phone number.

    Maybe the Pink Pages will be a little racier.
