Reading List

I’m obsessed with reading and believe that books are key to patching the bugs in our brains and thought processes. So, I’ve decided to start publishing my reading list. My interest span many subjects; everything from brain science, artificial intelligence, to great literature. Enjoy.

Three books by Peter Zeihan”The End of the world is just the beginning”, “The Accidential Super Power”, and “The Absent Super Power” with the current geopolitical situation, the breakdown of supply chains, and the war in Ukraine, I thought this would be a good place to start understanding the future.

Trying to understand the war in the Ukraine; what are the forces driving Russia for it’s invasion, and who will he invade next. This book is an eye opener.

My good friend Joe “Kaboom” Dituri came out with his first novel. It’s a page turner!
