Currently Reading

At any given time I'm usually reading about 3-4 different books. Here is the updated list of what I'm reading right now updated as of July 14th, 2021.

Shape

by Jordan Ellenberg

This is a super interesting book so far. I'm about 50 pages in. It talks a lot out Euclidian geomotry and making sure you use proofs to know why you know what you know. There's an entire chapter on whether a straw has one or two holes. I didn't know that there was a full scientific pursuit on a problem like this.

Anyways, this book is making the think. I believe it could make me think more logically which is a great thing.

Exhausted

by Nick Polizzi

These days I feel super exhausted a lot. This book was a no brainer to buy. It has a lot of practical advice in it. I'll have to synthesize what really stuck out to me and make a post about it. I'm loving this so far.

A World Without Email

by Cal Newport

Anything by Cal Newport is going to be good. The author of Deep Work and Digital Minimalism, Cal has some of the most throughouly researched books out there. He always puts forth a well thought out thesis on whatever subject he's writing about. This book is no exception.

It's interesting to hear what he has to say about email in the workplace. It's not as big an issue to me where I work. I get a few emails a day and it's not too distracting, but I would like to be able to manage email in general better. He puts forth some great ideas in this book.

I'll definitely make a post when I'm done with this.
