What three books would I show someone to explain myself with?

“The Power of Myth” [or Hero of 1000 Faces or _something_ Joseph Campbell] to show that I’m but a collection of archetypes.

The Kingfisher Children’s Illustrated Dictionary and Thesaurus [or a similar Dictionary/Thesaurus] so it can express that I basically say the same things in many different ways, using many different words but ultimately, I’ve only been saying one thing the entire time.

What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions – to show my absurdist humor that takes “What if” as seriously as the Science used to explain such things.

Note; I don’t own ANY of these books. Never read them [Power of Myth? I saw the TV Series]

I don’t have to.

Also, I’m assuming that the SOMEONE is an Alien from another planet who doesn’t understand our ways, and I wanted to express humor, science, language, personality types – and overall, the simultaneously extreme compressibility of all humanity that somehow gives us just enough room to express our individual uniqueness with.

I’m representing myself, but I could just as easily be having to explain all of humanity in three books which *also* includes myself.

And if the someone is a human? Same books.
