I’m regularly reading a wide variety of books. As I finish each, some will get summaries and notes posted to this blog. Everything is compiled into one page here as an overview of what I’ve already read this year.
A star indicates something I’d near-universally recommend. Other books aren’t necessarily unrecommended; it’s just that the answer is more, “It depends on what you’re looking to read…”
- The Tortilla Curtain by T.C. Boyle.
- The Great Mental Models by Farnam Street.
