Ryan Holiday and Stephen Hanselman - The Daily Stoic: 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance and The Art of Living
Ryan Holiday wrote a number of books which make you think. The Stoic Diary will be no exception. Begin the book wherever you want, depending on the date, and embrace the daily insights and meditation across each page, . There is deep wisdom for every day of the year to share from the life lessons of the philosophers Emperor Marcus Aurelius, Seneca and Epictetus.
Nicholas Carr - The Shallows
Technology has given the world wonderful things and, most recently, businesses and their people have been allowed to keep working wherever they are. In The Shallows, Carr explores how the way we think is changing our good connection to technology and the endless supply of tools at our disposal. His research, discussed in the book, suggests that the internet re-connects our brains and diminishes our capacity to think deeply and absorb data. A must-read for everyone who's questioned whether technology and the internet are changing their way of thinking, which is probably us all!
Annie Duke - Thinking in Bets
Annie Duke, longtime poker champion and now business consultant, outlines how to handle uncertainty, get comfy with it and make better choices in her book, Thinking in Bets. In the novel, Duke discusses the luck and timing elements that go into making great judgments. When making choices, she asks people to answer the main questions: How confident am I? What are the ways things could work out? What decision has the highest chances of success? Did I land on the approach that works 90 per cent of the time in the unfortunate 10 per cent? Or is my success more due to dumb luck than to major decision making?
Ray Dalio - Big Debt Crises
Ray Dalio shares his findings on how debt cycles work and how nations, organisations and individuals should cope with them in his second book. Confirming the hypothesis expressed by Dalio in his first book Principles: Life & Work, that the same events seem to happen again and again. It's the ability to grasp these issues' cause-effect relationships that repeat themselves, which can give you an advantage.
