Ett roligt inlägg av författaren James Altucher: "The Ten Most Important Books To Expand Your Brain"
Han börjar med en kategorisering av non-fiction:
  • BUSINESS CARD BOOKS: They establish the author as an expert. The author then uses this book to get speaking gigs or coaching or consulting gigs. These books usually suck. Don’t read one.
  • BOOKS THAT SHOULD BE CHAPTERS: A publisher will see an article somewhere like, “12 ways to become smarter" and say, “that should be a book". ..Those books suck. Don’t read one. And DEFINITELY don’t write one. Unless you want to waste a year of your life. I wasted 2004–2009 doing that.
  • BRAINGASM BOOKS: Books that will raise your IQ between the time you start and the time you end.
Sedan kommer 10 (drygt) tips i den senare kategorin. Däribland:
Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation (Artikel, TED-talk)
Man's Search For Meaning: The classic tribute to hope from the Holocaust (Amazon)
Mer otippade: BORN STANDING UP av Steve Martin och OUTLIERS av Malcolm Gladwell.
