Title:'Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!': Adventures of a Curious Character

Author:Richard P. Feynman


Start:Aug 2023

Status: Completed

Comment:As much as I admire Mr. Feynman for his perspective on science, his work, and his humor, I believe this book falls short. It feels a bit disorganized, with stories that vary too widely in subject matter. I was hoping to gain insight into everyday science, but instead, there were too many uninteresting stories about girls and drums. On a positive note, the book did not dampen my ongoing enthusiasm for physics.

Title:The Final Empire - The Mistborn Saga #1

Author:Brandon Sanderson


Start:June 2023

Status: Completed

Comment:What an incredible finish! I almost set it aside, but I'm glad I persisted. Though it began somewhat slowly, it concluded with a powerful ending, complete with significant plot twists and thrilling battles. It has opened up a new world for me, and I'm eager to continue with the next books in the series.

Title:The Hard Things About Hard Things

Author:Ben Horowitz



Status: Completed

Comment:I think Ben H. wrote an amazing book for entrepreneurs. Even though he's one of the ultimate big boys of Sand Hill road in Palo Alto, he's some how managed to keep things low key and grounded. He does so especially through his definition of 'The Struggle', the hard things that every CEO or founder need to handle. He also has some really good points in defining peace-time CEOs and wartime CEOs. A lot of this material resonated as well as inspired me. Great work is hard and should be hard. Learn to love it.

Title:The Wise Man's Fear

Author:Patrick Rothfuss



Status: Completed

Comment:A lot to talk about for this book. An epic adventure in the vast mystic and medieval world by Patrick Rothfuss. Follow Kvothe through his years at the University, the realm of Fea, The Lethani, the hunt for Denna and much more. This book is intriguing in a way that makes it difficult to pinpoint what specifically draws you in, yet it is equally challenging to put down.

Title:The Archives




Status: Completed

Comment:All the books I've found worth reading. Coming soon.
