Books

I love reading. I’ve always loved reading and I was really lucky growing up that my dad had a rather large collection of books for the time and he instilled his passion for science fiction in me. These days I try to alternate between science fiction / fantasy novels and personal development / leadership books which for me is a great way to both relax, unwind and still work on yourself at the same time.

On my Reading list

Malcolm Gladwell - Talking to strangers

I thoroughly enjoyed a couple of Malcolm’s previous books (Blink and The Tipping Point) so when a friend told me they are reading his new book of, it quickly went to the top of my reading list.

Abhijit Banerjee - Good economics for hard times

I am a big fan of Bill Gates’s summer books recommendations. Some of my favorite books in the past years came from his list and this year’s list is no exception.

Michael Lopp - Being Geek

An older book (2010) that I meant to read a long time ago, but it somehow always dropped under the radar. Hoping 2020 will be the year I get to read it

Robert Iger - The ride of a lifetime

I am a big fan of Bill Gates’s summer books recommendations. Some of my favorite books in the past years came from his list and this year’s list is no exception.

Scott Kupor - Secrets of Sand Hill Road

I’ve been dabbling in the start-up world for the past 2 years and even if I never got remotely close to being able to go and raise funds, I think reading and learning a bit more about the VC world is definitely worth it.

Stephen Segaller - Nerds 2.0.1 A Brief History of the Internet

The oldest book on my list all the way from 1999, recently recommended by a colleague at work. I was only a kid when the internet happened and the internet bubble burst so I didn’t understand at that time what had happened. Should be a really fun read looking back at those times, knowing what we know today.

Yuval Noah Harari - Homo-Deus, A brief history of tomorrow

A recommendation from my dad. Enough to get this book on my list.

Brad Smith - Tools and Weapons

I’ll admit, this book caught my attention because of its author - Bras Smith, president at Microsoft. As a huge Microsoft fan, having built my career on their products and tools, I am really interested to get a glimpse into Brad’s thoughts and ideas about the future of society and how technology might shape that.

David Mitchell - Cloud Atlas

Another book of Bill Gates’s summer list, I’m hoping this will hit the spot in my science fiction novel category.
