American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J.Robert Oppenheimer by Martin J.Sherwin and Kai Bird
The book that the movie “Oppenheimer” was based on. Most interesting part was the early days of Manhattan project and the urgency of the situation. Fall from grace was boring. Maybe I will appreciate it more in the future if I decide to reread.
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
I haven't read a fiction book in years (literally). The title was intriguing to say the least and I love how the story follows the life of an upcoming writer who is trying to get a book deal and the life of this old Hollywood celebrity. Read it in one sitting. Plot twists were unexpected. Makes sense why this is so popular but it's time to retreat back to non-fiction.
The Obstacle is the Way by Ryan Holiday
A great reminder of struggles that people faced in history.
Elon Musk by Walter Isaacson
5 Step Design Process. Every decision is made through the lens of whether it will bring him closer to making humans a multi-planetary species. Only limit is laws of physics. As follower of Musk’s antics, it was interesting to note what got cut from this book. A small peek into how history is written and how people are portrayed.
Zero To One by Peter Thiel
Competition is for losers. Build monopolies. Yes.
