Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite book... My roommate handed me this book to read the other day. I said hey, okay. I like this author. So I sat down and read it. Two minutes later, I stood up and said That was, hands down, the best book I have ever read. I'm a big fan of books, and have always had a hard time deciding what my favorite book is. Now there's no question. :) I recommend it to anybody and everybody.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Missing Piece Meets the Big O Probably the best and simplest book on love: a missing piece looking to fit into some rolling O's hole to become complete, always failing for one reason or another... until it meets a rolling whole without any pieces missing: the big O, who completes himself.
