Farnam St. blog had an interesting, multidisciplinary reading list for the Northern hemisphere summer coming up. By now I hope readers have realized that I love these lists, but the usual warning applies: there’s only so much time in a day and reading should be prioritized according to your own long-term “strategic objectives”, while still allowing for fun, serendipity-type reading. Good luck with that! I hope to achieve this “reading nirvana” before I’m 80. For completeness’ sake, there’s also Seth Godin’s list – much more “fluffy” but it includes a book I’m very curious about called “The $100 start-up”. I’ve also read the most complete (by far) notes from the 2012 Berkshire Hathaway meeting and, unfortunately, I couldn’t find a single book recommendation by Buffett and Munger. Finally, in this very fiction and biography-oriented list by the New York Times, there are 2 interesting books: George Dyson’s “Turing’s Cathedral” and the one on hackers called “We Are Anonymous” (in the same vein as yesterday’s post).
