    In The Times of India article just posted today (thanks Bridget), he said he liked books by Ian Fleming (James Bond), Dan Brown and Douglas Adams. He also mentioned the Harry Potter series and the Artemis Fowl series which he reads with (?) the kids, and also the Outliers.

    From a tweet, I didn't see the question, but I'm guessing it was about books he's read/enjoyed.

    "hitchhiker,tipping point,bourne identity,atlas shrugged"

    which translates as:

    Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams
    The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference - Malcolm Gladwell
    The Bourne Identity - Robert Ludlum (a series)
    Atlas Shrugged - Ayn Rand

    Does anyone know how many parts this series has? I found three, but that was what I made of the Finnish titles of the books... So anyone know if there are more?

    Read the Curious Incident of the Dog in the night. Quick read and very interesting, now that I know what I do about MNIK!

    I am working on the Idiot right now.

    Save the Cat is a book about screenwriting. I got it from Amazon and have been reading it. It's an interesting perspective on how to write and sell a screen play. Has anyone read, Atlas Shrugged before? It's longer than Catch-22 and all about Howard Roark and Dagney Taggart, two rugged individualists - kind of like Nietzche's Superman. Does Shah read on the plane? When else does he have time to read?

    Yes, I read Atlas Shrugged... um... about 30 years ago! :lol: Can't say I remember anything about it!

    For the role of Rizvan he also read "Look Me In The Eye: My Life With Asperger's" by John Elder Robison. Just watched his interview with Star and he mentioned there. I had been wondering if he had read it, because I read it myself very recently, and it was quite interesting autobiography of a person with Aspeger's...
