Peril at End House
2001 . Agatha Christie

image9

I love all Agatha Christie mysteries with Hercule Poiror as the lead detective. This one is particularly good. An old school mystery, where the clues are laid out fairly. Enjoy yourself.

We Are Legion (We Are Bob)
2016 . Dennis E. Taylor

image10

Hilarious and unlike anything I’ve ever read. Explore the galaxy. Much better audiobook imo.

Lex Fridman Podcast
2018 . Technology

image10

Lex is not only a genius but a good human being. The smartest conversations are here. Huge ideas about the world and our future.

The Sting
1973 . Comedy, Crime, Drama

image10

Probably my favorite film of all time.
img
The Shortest History of China
2021 . Linda Jaivin

image8

Fairly dry but the fastest way to understand the full history of China. 👍

World War Z
2006 . Max Brooks

image10

One of my favorite books of all time. It’s ‘realistic fiction’ that’s full of great geopolitical anecdotes. Better on audiobook (unique voice actors).

Jonathan Livingston Seagull
2014 . Richard Bach

image3

Trite. A story that thinks it’s profound in it’s simplicity. You’re better off watching birds fly to find some peace.

The Rational Optimist: How Prosperity Evolves
2010 . Matt Ridley

image8

Great information on why the world is actually getting MUCH better every decade. The news media and experts rely on hysteria to gain power. If you think the world is getting bad, read this. A little dry and hard to push through in the middle chapters.
img
The Wright Brothers
2015 . David McCullough

image9

Short biography that’s quite inspirational. The true story of air flight is of the best reminders that a small group of tinkerers can usually beat the slow moving corporate giant when it comes to breakthrough innovation.
img
Idea Man
2011 . Paul Allen

image4

Paul is a huge fan of Paul, lol. Not much to learn here, stopped after 5 chapters.
img
The First Tycoon
2010 . T. J. Stiles

image9

A little long in the second half but an incredible story of the start of the Robber Baron era. Cornelius was the richest man in America but one day he got into a shouting match with two young guys in a carriage. Knocked them both out cold. Different time.
img
The Founders
2022 . Jimmy Soni

image10

One of the best business stories. Incredible characters. Origin of SpaceX, Tesla, Yelp, LinkedIn, and so many more companies.
img
The Laws of Human Nature
2018 . Robert Greene

image10

Essential. Understanding the motivations of human beings is key to virtually every aspect of our lives. Just finished reading this for a second time.
img
Superforecasting
2015 . Philip Eyrikson Tetlock,Dan Gardner

image8

Great insights based on real data for how we can better predict future events. The number one takeaway; the best super forecasters all share a common trait, the ability to change their mind very quickly as new data is presented. Most of us struggle with consistency bias to our prior held beliefs. Worth a read. A little slow in the second half.

Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World
2005 . Jack Weatherford

image10

One of the only history books I have ever re-read. This helped me understand the world better than any other single book when I read it a decade ago.
