My Favorite Books in 2019



2019 has been a great year in terms of dedicating time to my reading and seeking new ideas through it.


Here are my favorite books:


Work / Psychology:

  1. David Epstein - Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World (this one was by far my favorite in this category)

  2. Jonathan Haidt - The Happiness Hypothesis (many truth-bombs backed by research in psychology)

  3. Malcolm Gladwell - Talking To Strangers (for Gladwell's superb writing, not as much for the key message)


General Interest:

  1. Tara Westover - Educated: A Memoir (a story about a homeschooled girl escaping a fundamentalist cult)

  2. Asne Seierstad - Two Sisters (about Norwegian Somali sisters who joined Isis in Syria)

  3. Jon Ronson - So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed (Social media shaming can destroy people's lives)

  4. Rachel Louise Snyder - No Visible Bruises (investigating the domestic violence epidemic)


Fiction:
