A retrospective look
My intent is to update this regularly in the future as I finish books, but I'll catch up on 2017 really quickly now. It has been a busy year (so far more than 40 flights, plus studying for Level 2 of the CFA exam throughout May) but I managed to get through a lot of material.
It's a pretty diverse list- Czech, Russian, and German novels, a graphic novel, art history, some philosophy, statistics, computing, and even some political commentary.
Here's a quick rundown, arranged in order of how recently I finished them.
- The Master & Margarita, Mikhail Bulgakov
- The Daily Stoic, Ryan Holiday
- Statistics is Easy, Shasha/Wilson/Krantz
- Machine Learning with Scikit-Learn and TensorFlow, Aurelien Geron
- Caravaggio, Sebastian Schutze
- The Book of Laughter and Forgetting, Milan Kundera
- Metamagical Themas, Douglas R. Hofstadter
- Poem Strip, Dino Buzzati
- Who Rules the World?, Noam Chomsky
- Darkness at Noon, Arthur Koestler
- Why Information Grows, Cesar Hidalgo
- Thinking Fast and Slow, Daniel Kahneman
- The Joke, Milan Kundera
