A list of books that every man should read and they only have one Hemmingway novel up there? Bullshit.
Where's Gatsby too?I still call it The Jake.

No Hawthorne, Hugo, or Sienkiewicz either. Didn't expect much—it's Esquire after all. If you take literary advice from them, you're fuct regardless.
The Great Gatsby should definitely be on the list."Alpine rock and steep, deep powder are what I seek, and I will always find solace there." - Bean Bowers
shroom put it best: "Man, you're one biased motherfucker."

I`m with Tipp on this one. More Tim Dorsey and Randy Wayne White too.
I loved Lonesome Dove. One of my favorites.
Also recommend :
In search of captain zero
Helmet for my pillow
Pillars of the earth
Inside delta force
Marine sniper:93 confirmed kills
With the old breed- must read for ww II buffs. It will blow your mind.
Out of all those books, my wife has only read Pillars of the earth, so I think they are pretty manly.
My dad has been working his way through his alma mater`s top 100 book list. He went to Holy Cross. 1st on the list was the bible. They get decidedly more arduous after that. I think he is through 50 or 60 of them. He told me to never waste my time on war and peace. I assured him I was a step ahead of him.

Whatta buncha poseurs. Nowhere did it say 'read ONLY thesee 75 books.'. So everyone gets to beast their little chicken chests about what's wrong with the list (that, evidently, they were stupid enough to read, knowing (or not) that their predictable reaction is why the list was writtEn and published in the first place).
It's like the reflex test, which is really just a dictor getting to satisfy his (or her) urge to hit someone with a hammer.
And of course also, too, you're a buncha morons cuz no one mentioned A Fan's Notes, or dreams of Bunker Hill, or housekeeping.
