This is a link to my bookshelf on . If you’ve never heard of the site, it’s what I’ve found to be the best way to organize your library and find new content (it recommends books based on your uploads, and also allows you to connect to Facebook and see what your friends who use the site read and what they rated it, an online book club of sorts.) Anyways, I read mostly non-fiction. I’m fascinated with science, technology, intelligence, big data, comedy, music, and business books, but there’s other genres in the 500+ books I’ve pinned so far. And don’t get me wrong, I think most of these books are readable for most everyone, so don’t get scared off by some of these titles. The books and speakers I enjoy and envy most are those who are not only intelligent but can simplify and explain their thesis to the world, the way the authors of do, for example.
The story of 3 different Harvard Business School grads who paved their own ways to success. It ties in a lot of business lessons that the three learned pre and post school, and really inspires me to get working. One of the guys became the largest trader of dog food in Japan simply because he lived there and realized how pampered and regal their dogs are treated there.
