Four books I'm reading during the summer after my freshman year of college
Getting back into casual reading. Trying to finish a book before the end of each summer month (M, J, J, A).
- 1.Xbox Revisted (Robbie Bach)Free book that I received from the former Microsoft President himself, Robbie Bach. He spoke on campus and I was very intrigued by his concept of civic engineering. Cool guy.
- 2.How to Not Be Wrong (Jordan Ellenberg)Recommended by Bill Gates for a summer read (yes...there's a trend here). Haven't researched book too much but know it's written by a UW-Madison professor, so it must be alright.
- 3.Outliers (Malcolm Gladwell)Read it once already for a high school assignment. Procrastinated and didn't spend as much time on it as I wanted to. Compelling study of successful people.
- 4.Sapiens (Yuval Noah Harari)Recommended by Zuckerberg and Gates (Just remembered Gates is also mentioned in Outliers...and no, Microsoft is not paying me off for this list). Been told it's an eye-opening read on the story of humans and their interaction.
