What I’m Reading

I love to read. I mainly read non-fiction books about things that I find interesting but I am open to anything. In 2013, I was challenged to read one book per week and I became so hooked that I haven’t stopped.

My Favourite book of all time is The Brothers Ashkenazi By I.J. Singer.

The books I recommend the most are:

  • The Path to Power (LBJ series) by Robert Caro
  • Superforecasting: The Art and Science of Prediction by Philip Tetlock and Dan Gardner
  • The Secret of Our Success: How Culture Is Driving Human Evolution, Domesticating Our Species, and Making Us Smarter by Joseph Henrich,
  • Endurance: Shackleton’s Incredible Voyage by Alfred Lansing
  • From Third World to First: The Singapore Story: 1965-2000 by Lee Kuan Yew,
  • The Great Game: The Struggle for Empire in Central Asia by Peter Hopkirk
  • The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money, and Power by Daniel Yergin

My favourite writer/blogger is Scott Alexander who writes at Slate Star Codex.
