    Hi Tony,

    You are very knowledgeable in many fields. I suspect you have a huge library at your home. Which are your five favorite books/DVD's per field like: Martial arts, selfdefense, motivation, spirituality, health and nutrition? Which are your favorite authors?

    Kind Regards,

    Nick Engelen

    Hi Nick,

    Wow donít know were to start with this list as my interests are so varied from engineering, philosophy, life, quantum physics, martial arts, fitness - nutrition and well being, self development Ė family and so on. So here goes with a quick list on books as they are better than DVDís and I prefer to narrow my focus when answering such a broad question Ė so forgive me mate I am just listing a tiny percentage of my library at homeÖ

    Nick, I would not know were to stop with writing the list as I have not listed so many great people such as Tagore, Rumi and Ghandi which are all on my bookshelves no to mention classis such as the Bhagavad-Gita and many others also sitting on my shelves.

    Hope you find this interesting.

    They say you can tell a lot about a person by: what they read; what they say about others and who they mix with (their environment) Ė so now after looking at this list you know a little bit more about me!

    Regards,
    Tony
