Hope you are doing well. Today’s recommendations are:
Range: How Generalists triumph in a specialised world, by David Epstein
In an increasingly specialised world, it is critical to take a step back and wonder if we are erring by narrowing our expertise too much, too soon. Spanning a range of cultural icons, this book makes a solid case for going broad over going deep. While there are multiple anecdotes driving the same point, it is an insightful read nonetheless.
Straight to Hell: True tales of deviance, debauchery, and Billion-Dollar deals, by John LeFevre
This book does not give you gyan, but you learn a lot from it. It is a troll-ish way to satirise and normalise working culture in the Banking industry. A Fun read and you will end up picking some knowledge about how the economic system works. Read this book if you want to read trash but pick up some knowledge too. It is an easy way to get back to fast reading, so that’s a huge plus.
My book recommendations are compiled here for ease of reference. Looking forward to writing to you soon.
