It’s that time of year for thoughtful reflection & self-assessment. I often wish I were a faster reader…I started 2018 with a longer & different list of books to read, but time & circumstances took me to unexpected paths.
Overall, though, it’s been a fruitful year of discovering:
• fascinating views of cultural differences in thinking
• helpful methods for making better decisions
• inspirational & practical advice on creativity
• mysterious insights on our complex brain via fact & fiction
• mind-opening visions of the future of life & technology
• enlightening lessons of the feats & foibles of real humans who impacted history
Star rating systems are somewhat arbitrary, as the worth of a book depends on the interests & needs of a person. I’ve rated these books I’ve read over the last year by how enjoyable they were, as well as how useful they have been in my life. The stars reflect the strength of my recommendation to a general reader.
Concerning Christian’s “Origin Story,” to get a better big history of science, try Bryson’s “A Short History of Nearly Everything” instead. If you’d like to ask me about any of these, questions are welcome.
Please share what your favorite read of 2018 was!
