My 2021 Reading List

Jan 7, 2021Blog, Books0 comments

This is what I’ve been reading lately. I’ll update as the year goes along.

Check out my 2020 reading list here.

Non-Fiction

The Culture Code – Daniel Coyle

Its subtitle describes it best: The Secrets of Highly Successful Groups.

Indistractable – Nir Eyal

A practical approach to controlling your attention; how to create a life you value by getting rid of distraction.

Focus – Daniel Goleman

A guide into our brain’s attentional network and its impact on who we are, how we relate, and how we perceive the world around us.

How to Think – Alan Jacobs

A thoughtfully-laid out argument on the importance of meta-cognition: the art of thinking.

Fiction

I keep fiction in the rotation for a few reasons. First, because there’s something magical about beautifully written prose. Second, because reading good literature is said to increase emotional IQ. And lastly—and most importantly (for me)—because it helps quieten my mind at night.

The Eye of the World (Book 1: The Wheel of Time Series) – Robert Jordan

The first book in a series of intricately-woven, epic adventures frequently compared to Tolkein’s The Lord of the Rings.
