Here are a list of books I’ve read this week:

  1. Why Buddhism is True by Robert Wright

This book went into details about how our evolution has affected us. To be honest it was more of an evolutionary science book than it was a book about Buddhism

  1. Ultralearning by Scott Young

This book came to my attention purely by coincidence. I came across his YouTube channel where he was doing MIT’s Computer Science course in 1 year when normally it takes 4 years and he was doing this all by himself not having enrolled into the course. I was quite inspired by this and read the book in 2 days. To be honest I think I may apply the concepts to learning about data structures and algorithms in Python or learning French. But a lot of my time right now is just reading books to be honest.

  1. The Almanack of Naval Ravikant by Eric Jorgenson

This book outlined a lot of Naval Ravikant’s posts on Twitter and Youtube and it was a decent summary. Although I feel its going to be difficult for me to apply any of his teachings to my actual life.

  1. Just Keep Buying by Nick Maggiulli

I read this book on the day I got it and it is a decent book about how to save and invest correctly (invest it in index funds). It didn’t really have anything different to the first finance book I read which was Unshakeable by Tony Robbins.

  1. Zero to One by Peter Thiel

This book printed incorrectly and so I missed like the last 4 chapters and I don’t want to invest in another copy. Overall I thought that the book has sound business advice.
