Random observations:

1. I am kept off the top post by an actual Malaysian politician!

2. The book at #3 is a word of fiction lah. Hello?

3. One way to become a self-made millionaire is to write a book on the topic and charge almost 50 bucks.

4. I wonder why the authors in the top 7 all seem to share the same religion.

5. The authors in the bottom 3 all want to help you get rich.

It's nice to know that my old friend Faisal Tehrani is #2 on the Fiction list, too. I will not read his novel soon because I am only reading fiction by dead authors at the mo.
