What are some books you think everyone should read?

Based on what I have read.

What are some books you think everyone should read?

    1. Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl

    “Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather must recognize that it is he who is asked. In a word, each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible.”

    2. Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman

    “Our comforting conviction that the world makes sense rests on a secure foundation: our almost unlimited ability to ignore our ignorance.”

    3. Fooled by Randomness: The Hidden Role of Chance in Life and in the Markets by Nassim Nicholas Taleb

    “My lesson from Soros is to start every meeting at my boutique by convincing everyone that we are a bunch of idiots who know nothing and are mistake-prone, but happen to be endowed with the rare privilege of knowing it.”

    4. Thinking in Systems: A Primer by Donella H. Meadows

    “There are no separate systems. The world is a continuum. Where to draw a boundary around a system depends on the purpose of the discussion.”

    5. The Art of Learning: A Journey in the Pursuit of Excellence by Josh Waitzkin

    “It is rarely a mysterious technique that drives us to the top, but rather a profound mastery of what may well be a basic skill set.”

    6. Shoe Dog: A Memoir by the Creator of Nike by Phil Knight

    “So that morning in 1962 I told myself: Let everyone else call your idea crazy . . . just keep going. Don’t stop. Don’t even think about stopping until you get there, and don’t give much thought to where “there” is. Whatever comes, just don’t stop.”

    7. Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don't Know by Adam M. Grant

    “A mark of lifelong learners is recognizing that they can learn something from everyone they meet.”

    8. The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran

    “The timeless in you is aware of life's timelessness. And knows that yesterday is but today's memory and tomorrow is today's dream.”

    9. Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder by Nassim Nicholas Taleb

    “The psychologist Gerd Gigerenzer has a simple heuristic. Never ask the doctor what you should do. Ask him what he would do if he were in your place. You would be surprised at the difference”

    10. Dubliners by James Joyce

    “One by one they were all becoming shades. Better pass boldly into that other world, in the full glory of some passion, than fade and wither dismally with age.”
