Here are some books that I’ve read this week and my thoughts on them:

AI Superpwers, China, SIlicon Valley and the New World Order by Kai-Fu Lee

This books goes into detial abot the startups from China and that copied big tech companies like Google, Facebook, Twitter etc. This book also goes into some detail about AI and predicts that AI will replace a lot of jobs and suggests that a Universal Basic Income will be needed for us to be able to live because AI will take a lot of jobs.

Overall I thought that the book was a decent read for anyone that wants to learn more about China tech copycats companies and who wants to learn more about how AI will change the job markets in coming months.

  1. Why Has Nobody Told Me This Before by Dr Julie Smith

To be honest I felt that this book was overated and I already knew most of the stuff in this book, having already read a number of therapy books. The book goes into detail about thought biases such as all or nothing thinking or mind reading. To be honest I don’t remember much from this book because its content wasn’t very memerable.

  1. Scattered Minds by Gabor Mate

This book is all about ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder). I found out about this book and Gabor Mate from a counciler I was seeing last year. I thought that Mate repeated himself a lot when he said that parents and their parenting style are to blame for a child’s ADD and found it a chore to read through his repition. Overall I thought the books gives a good insight into the illness and the suggestions for healing were quite good.
