What should I read next
I've added a lot to my list. But I can't read them all next, so what one should I pick?
1. Algorithms to live by - Brian Christian
I love the concept. I'm aways looking for better ways of thinking and doing stuff and judging by the title that's exactly what this book focuses on. Bonus points because one of my oldest friends is called Brian and he's a Christian.
2. The power of now - Eechart Tolle
I'm already one to focus on the present this sounds like it would be rehashing what I already know.
3. The selfish gene - Richard Dawkins
It's not good trates that get passed on it's trates that lead to mating that get passed on and often it's the selfish moves that get you there. At least I think that's the gist of it. I feel I have as good an understanding of evolution that I'll ever need. I don't plan on being a scientist. Is there hidden knowledge here that could benefit my life, maybe ？it's beating the others, but I'm sure I can find better.
4. The stranger - Albert Camus
Some short phylosophy story? Can't remember why I added this. Pass for now.
5. The hitchhikers guide to the galaxy - Douglas Adams
Sci fi fans praise this book. I watched the film and hated it. On a rewatch it didn't seem as bad (still only a 6/10. Nothing special.) based on the film I'll pass. Plus I'm not really one for fiction.
6. Seeking Wisdom from Darwin to Munger - Peter Bevilin
Tons of insights on how to think /act like really smart people. Shame about the price though. I'm not paying £43 for a book.
7. The Charisma Myth - Olivia Cabane
How to be more charismatic? This sounds a lot more like something I'd enjoy reading. So far this is winning.
8. Made to stick - Chip Heath
This sounds interesting why do we focus on some things and not others? That sounds like a question worth learning the answer too. This is high up on my list of potential buys.
9. The good life - Marc Schulz
Lessons from people on their deathbed. This sounds like a book that I should read as soon as possible. If I leave it too late I might not have time to impart their wisdom. Then again, will I hear anything new? Times more important than money. Family is everything. Make good memories ect. Do I need to read this?
10. The third door - Alex Banayan
I really enjoyed the podcast with him and wanted to know more. It sounds like his version of skip the line.
