If you're into working on cars, read "The Gold Plated Porsche" by Stephan Wilkinson. I'm halfway through it for my second time.

Depends on what you like. Other personal favorites are American Psycho and Less Than Zero, both by Bret Easton Ellis. But I'm under the impression his writing is an acquired taste.

Books that will honestly change your life:

Freakonomics - Steven D. Levitt & Stephen J. Dubner
Outliers - Malcolm Gladwell


Literally every single person I've suggested these too have come back to me and thanked me.

Not BMW related or car related whatsoever but

I read this and really enjoyed it, author travels to all of the "happiest" countries in the world to figure out what each one does to find that level of euphoria, all of them are different. Author also has a good sense of humor so it makes for a good read

One Flew Over the Cukoo's Nest

Clockwork Orange

Catch 22

If you want something funny, Christopher Moore's A Dirty Job and Lamb are two of the funniest books I've ever read. His writing style made me feel like I was watching a movie in my head.

If you liked the first one read Superfreakonomics if you haven't already. I thought it was better.
