Here is a sample of books I really enjoyed reading. I recommend them for tech leaders.


Human nature




  • Where is Everybody?. A comprehensive review of the reasons why we have not encountered evidence, messages, or artifacts of extraterrestrial life?
  • The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck. A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life.
  • A Guide to the Good Life: The Ancient Art of Stoic Joy. William B. Irvine plumbs the wisdom of Stoic philosophy, one of the most popular and successful schools of thought in ancient Rome, and shows how its insight and advice are still remarkably applicable to modern lives.
  • Stumbling on Happiness. Renowned Harvard psychologist Daniel Gilbert describes the foibles of imagination and illusions of foresight that cause each of us to misconceive our tomorrows and misestimate our satisfactions.
  • The Intelligent Investor. A must-read for investors, and why you will always do worse than unmanaged indices on the stock market.
  • Walden. At Walden Pond, Henry David Thoreau reflected on simpler living in the natural world.
