The world is not slowing down, but summer is finally here. It is a chance to take a break and do some summer reading. If you are looking for ideas, here are three must-read books for your summer reading list:
This book has been found on multiple reading lists, and for good reason. Malcolm Gladwell details the secrets of success through writing that is witty, insightful, and always entertaining. You will learn about the myth of "prodigies," the elements of success, and all about what Bill Gates, Wayne Gretzky, and the Beatles have in common. It is an enjoyable read, and essential for anyone hoping to become an outlier themselves.
The way our ancestors thought about gravity, about medicine, about the rotation of the planets, it all seems absurd to us today. So, what do we believe today that our descendants will find ridiculous? Anything by Klosterman is an excellent read, especially if you enjoy essays on pop culture and Rock n' Roll. However, in this book, Klosterman takes a break from his essays and focuses on one important question: What do we take for granted today that will seem absurd in the future? He interviews some of the best and the brightest minds of our age to figure out what in our age we have got completely wrong.
If you can only ever read one book about Steve Jobs, Apple computers, or the dawn of the Information Age, it should be this biography by Walter Isaacson. Jobs was a fascinating, and at times controversial character. Passionate, innovative, and the definition of a perfectionist. Isaacson's book contains information about his personal and professional life from beginning to end, and it is engaging from start to finish.
