Each quarter, I post a quick run-down of books I’ve read during the quarter. Please note that all links are Amazon affiliate links that may pay to me a very modest commission that I will promptly use to buy more books to read. Basically just helps spin the flywheel.

General Interest

  • Once Upon A Time In Russia By Ben Mezrich.  Fascinating and crazy simultaneously – Once Upon a Time in Russia is the untold true story of the larger-than-life billionaire oligarchs who surfed the waves of privatization to reap riches after the fall of the Soviet regime.
  • Flow by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. Interesting but long-winded in spots – Legendary psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s famous investigations of “optimal experience” have revealed that what makes an experience genuinely satisfying is a state of consciousness called flow. During flow, people typically experience deep enjoyment, creativity, and a total involvement with life.
  • Sea Stories by William McRaven Admiral William H. McRaven is a part of American military history, having been involved in some of the most famous missions in recent memory, including the capture of Saddam Hussein, the rescue of Captain Richard Phillips, and the raid to kill Osama bin Laden.
