reading

These are some of the articles and books I like from the past. I haven’t been keeping a record of all the articles I have read, but starting 2016, I am going to keep a record of them.

Some Books I have read/listened to:

  • Steve Jobs (audiobook) by Walter Isaacson (very good inspiration for everyone)
  • Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
  • An Autobiography. The Story Of My Experiments With Truth by M.K. Gandhi – an exhaustive book, but I learned a few things listening to it. I am practising to let of my ego, I am not done letting it go but I am training myself to do so. Also I admire Gandhi for his ability forgive. Even though you put yourself down in the process, if you begin forgiving people, your life becomes simple and elegant.
  • Think Like a Freak by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner
  • Freakonomics by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner
  • Paper Towns by John Greene – this audiobook draws the picture for you. good way to make your commute interesting.
  • The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (audiobook) by Douglas Adams
  • Quiet: The Power of Introverts by Susan Cain
    • Practically the story of my life. I was listening to how I live my life. I am an introvert myself but I like speaking to people about my expertise, be that any stranger, I can explain computer science very well because “That’s my thing!” I only enjoyed the first ‘part’ of the book. She has written about stats and studies in the ‘second part’ which I did not find amusing.
  • The Martian – One of the best audiobooks I have ever listened to. If you are not a fan of maths, tolerate the author for his nerdy calculations. The film that came after did leave out many parts from the book, but I think it did justice for the author.
