The most prescient book I have read. And also the best title on any book I have read.
Universality, mathematics and chaos. This book changed the way I view the world. Everything is a non linear dynamic system.
This book has the potential to change my life. Its all in the execution now.
An insightful parable on the process of making a business that can live without you, and what it means for it to be sell-able.
A guide to the science of hearing (with lesser science than I’d like)
Taleb is crass, pretentious, and cantankerously contrarian. But you can’t deny he has a point.
I too was hoodwinked by the 10,000 hour rule.
I am nervous writing this review.
A “best of” compilation of thinking and learning models - good if you haven’t read a lot of books on thinking and learning techniques.
Sum, a set excellent thought experiments.
The name is crap, but the content is not that bad.
This ain’t it chief.
Thoughts and musings of silicon valley’s favourite internet philosopher.
A didactic book on our indelible relationship with money.
A well researched and genuine work, accounting for those the markets have left behind.
Feel good, almost to a fault.
Every human is born as many and dies as one.
True crime meets TechCrunch meets Investigative journalism.
Entertaining, and thought provoking - in that order.
Now, I don’t want to “sleep, when I die”.
By the numbers.
An excellent book on how, and why we make the decisions we make
An excellent book, primarily about the hard things about running a business.
This is third book in the Ryan Holiday’s stoicism (inspired?) trilogy of books.
I had randomly ended up buying this book off flipkart, because I got a very good deal if I bought this book, along with Atomic Habits. Atomic Habits was the book that I originally wanted to buy, but I am super glad I did indeed end up buying this one too.
I bought this book because I was greatly taken by the promises made by it, and the internet swearing by it. I got lucky, because I really liked this book, the main reason being its a very effective, and practical guide to building and enforcing habits. I’d highly recommend this to anyone who wants to form new habits, or try to get rid of bad ones.
