Ohh I got some goodies for ya, Hermann Hesse is amazing and opened me up to many books.

  1. Just buy it right now..seriously. The Book of Mirdad by Mikhail Naimy

  2. Another Classic by Herman Hesse Demian

    3)Another with a similar feel as Siddhartha The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

    So these top 3 are the "closest" to Siddartha that I've read. You will defintely like the top 3, they are amazing books with such fundamental truths told through a story. All easy to read and similiar in length.

    These next 4 are just suggested for anyone that is into these types of books, I would almost guarantee that you will love them! They are just less "story" like. The Autobiography is an amazing read, and is indeed a story but it's non-fiction. The Way of Zen is just a beautiful book, but is not a fiction along with the Bhagavad and The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari (The author actually suggests Siddhartha in it!)

  3. If you liked Siddhartha heavily for it's spiritual aspects and the effect it left on you, this book has changed me deeply (they all have but this book is a little different) The Autobiography of a Yogi by
    Paramahansa Yogananda

    5)And his translation of The Bhagavad Gita

    6)Good ol' Allan Watts The Way of Zen

  4. Another highly suggested book The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin Sharma

    Enjoy my friend!

Try Krakauer's other well known book Into Thin Air, and because there's some controversy regarding his version of events, also The Climb by Anatoli Boukreev who was a major player that day.

Krakauer's other book Under the Banner of Heaven is a good "true crime" style story about some Morman murders, but may not be enough like Into the Wild to appeal to you.

Over the Edge of the World is more of a history, covering Magellan's circumnavigation of the earth. It was facinating and definately had intrigue, machinations, and survival elements.

Another book on exploration and survival, Endurance: Shakleton's Incredible Voyage

And another one, Fatal Journey: The Final Expedition of Henry Hudson. I think this is the one I read, but I can't be certain. It doesn't seem to be as well regarded, but i thought it was still interesting.

A book on diving and survival: The Last Dive, Chowdhury

The Hot Zone could be thought of as science survival. Anyway, you'll probably love the opening bits in Africa, although it does slow way down after that.

Far away from survival, but still about travel are the wonderful Bill Bryson's travelogues. Witty and informative. In a Sunburned Country and A Walk in the Woods are particularly recommended.

  • The Undercover Economist - Has a pretty similar feel to Freakonomics. Basically economic concepts applied to every day things.

  • Spin-Free Economics - More like a textbook in format. There are a bunch of short chapters on various topics which he analyzes using economic theory. Some of the Amazon reviews say it's a pretty standard free-market capitalist style thinking and not "spin-free" but it's a good primer on basic concepts imo.

  • Predictably Irrational - Behavioral economics, which is basically taking psychology and applying it to econ. Basically economic models rely on humans being rational and the Ariely's research is all about how humans aren't a lot of the time. This area of econ interests me most, so if you like this book, the Upside of Irrationality, Sway, and Nudge are all pretty interesting too.

  • Malcolm Gladwell's books (Outliers, Tipping Point, Blink) aren't about econ but they're in the realm of "dumbed down" interesting things.

I'd suggest the short novel "Post Office" by Charles Bukowski and if you love the dark humor and grittiness of that you'll love Bukowski's book "Ham on Rye."

Gang Leader for a Day. Bought this on a whim at random when getting into reading and loved it. The author is a co-author of Freakonomics.

You should read Simon Reynolds鈥 Shock and Awe, an excellent history/critical contextualization of glam (with an appendix tracking the influence of glam from the 80s to the present)

For fiction, check out some stuff by Neal stephenson like Cryptonomicon or Anathem

For non-fiction, maybe Hyperspace by Michio Kaku or Chaos by James Gleick.

Are you into classics, or could you enjoy some modern, punchy, gritty and sometimes downright nasty fiction, by the author of Trainspotting, Irvine Welsh?

He writes with a Scottish accent in places, and is not afraid of violence and - well - adult content, but if you are ok with all that malarkey, then might I suggest The Bedroom Secrets of the Master Chefs?

Adult content warning.

If you prefer the classics with a dark twist, then perhaps you should try Goethe's Faust and/or Matthew Lewis' The Monk.

Edit: Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter is another book that I found intriguing - for being introduced to the way of life, and how to cope with sociological issues, in the 17th Century, in Boston.
