My reading list, book reviews and notes

A compilation of my thoughts on the books that I’ve read in the past and a list of those that I plan to read in the future.

Atomic Habits

No matter the goals, Atomic Habits offers a proven framework for improving just a little bit every day. James Clear, one of the world's leading experts on habit formation, reveals practical strategies that will teach you exactly how to form good habits, break bad ones, and master the tiny behaviors that lead to remarkable results.

Angels and Demons

World-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to a Swiss research facility to analyze a cryptic symbol seared into the chest of a murdered physicist. What he discovers is unimaginable: a deadly vendetta against the Catholic Church by a centuries-old underground organization -- the Illuminati. In a desperate race to save the Vatican from a powerful time bomb, Langdon joins forces in Rome with the beautiful and mysterious scientist Vittoria Vetra. Together they embark on a frantic hunt through sealed crypts, dangerous catacombs, and deserted cathedrals, and into the depths of the most secretive vault on earth...the long-forgotten Illuminati lair.

Coffee Can Investing

Most people invest in the usual assets: real estate, gold, mutual funds, fixed deposits, and stock markets. It's always the same four or five instruments. All they end up making is a measly 8 to 12 percent per annum. Those who are exceptionally unfortunate get stuck in the middle of a crash and end up losing a lot of money. What if there was another way?

The Psychology Of Money

Doing well with money isn’t necessarily about what you know. It’s about how you behave. And behavior is hard to teach, even to really smart people. Money―investing, personal finance, and business decisions―is typically taught as a math- based field, where data and formulas tell us exactly what to do.But in the real world people don’t make financial decisions on a spreadsheet.They make them at the dinner table, or in a meeting room, where personal history, your own unique view of the world, ego, pride, marketing, and odd incentives are scrambled together.

Remember Bacon's famous words: "Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested."?

While this remains a list of the books that I've read and those that I plan to read, this is also my notepad to come back to when I want remember to something from a book that is meant to chewed and digested. Do read my notes on the books you love.
