For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

This book was recommend to me by a friend and I thought I would give it a listen. Personally, I did not enjoy it due to it feeling that the books was just an outlet for the author to brag about themselves and share the "I don't care about anything that isn't important to me" attitude.
The book lacks reflection, depth, and insight that would help the individuals trying to take a message away from the book and instead is lost in non-relevant side stories of the author.

Claude Shannon was a tinkerer, a playful wunderkind, a groundbreaking polymath, and a digital pioneer whose insights made the Information Age possible. He constructed fire-breathing trumpets and customized unicycles, outfoxed Vegas casinos, and built juggling robots, but he also wrote the seminal text of the Digital Revolution. That work allowed scientists to measure and manipulate information as objectively as any physical object. His work gave mathematicians and engineers the tools to bring that world to pass.

I have been on a spree of biographies and books focused on Bells Lab and "A Mind at Play" provides great insight into the amazing world of Claude Shannon.

I would highly recommend this book to others, just to showcase one of the most brilliant minds of the field that most have probably have never heard of.

  • Why We Sleep

Sleep is one of the most important but least understood aspects of our life, wellness, and longevity. Until very recently, science had no answer to the question of why we sleep, or what good it served, or why we suffer such devastating health consequences when we don't sleep. Compared to the other basic drives in life - eating, drinking, and reproducing - the purpose of sleep remained elusive.

After watching a few TED talks and lectures from Matthew Walker, I decided to listen to this book. Walker provides great insight into the importance of sleep and why our fast-pace society needs to recognize its positive attributes.

I've recommended this book multiple times after reading it and will definitely be gifting it as a Christmas present this year.

Who Owns the Future? is a visionary reckoning with the effects network technologies have had on our economy. Lanier asserts that the rise of digital networks led our economy into recession and decimated the middle class. Now, as technology flattens more and more industries - from media to medicine to manufacturing - we are facing even greater challenges to employment and personal wealth. But there is an alternative to allowing technology to own our future....

I really enjoy Jaron Lanier's thought process throughout this book and the ideas he presented. Introducing micro-payments based on the usage of code sounds like a great idea in theory but the implementation and how quickly the code is cycled through or refactored would cause issues in balancing the economy he is seeking to fix.

Overall, a different perspective on the tech industry while recognizing its flaws and trying to provide a few solutions to fix its current state.
