My Thanksgiving reading list

November 25th, 2012 · No Comments

Too little time, too many great books to catch up.

Below is a list of books on my bookshelf – I won’t finish all of them during this long holiday weekend but I’m working on them!

  • Mastery by Robert Greene. The eagerly anticipated new book from the author of the bestselling The 48 Laws of Power. What did Charles Darwin, middling schoolboy and underachieving second son, do to become one of the earliest and greatest naturalists the world has known? What were the similar choices made by Mozart and by Caesar Rodriguez, the U.S. Air Force’s last ace fighter pilot? In Mastery, Robert Greene’s fifth book, he mines the biographies of great historical figures for clues about gaining control over our own lives and destinies. Picking up where The 48 Laws of Power left off, Greene culls years of research and original interviews to blend historical anecdote and psychological insight, distilling the universal ingredients of the world’s masters.
  • The 4-Hour Chef: The Simple Path to Cooking Like a Pro, Learning Anything, and Living the Good Life. Don’t let the book title fool you — this is NOT a cooking book. This is the book about rapid learning and living a full life. This is the Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry into Values
  • The Signal and the Noise: Why So Many Predictions Fail-but Some Don’t by Nate Silver. If you haven’t heard about Nate Silver, you haven’t been reading about the news. 🙂

Any books are you reading? I’d love to hear book recommendations from you my dear readers. Leave me a comment.
