2016 Reading List

roughly in order of rating

Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

One of my favorite science fiction books ever. A fun and fast thriller on the multiverse. Going to be a great movie soon.

Shoe Dog by Phil Knight

Amazing story of the early days of Nike and arguably the best business memoir ever. Bummer it stops at Nike’s IPO. We need a part 2.

Seveneves by Neal Stephenson

I absolutly loved this book, but I suspect it dives too deep into the science for most people.

Creativity Inc. by Ed Catmull

Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions by Dan Ariely

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child — Parts One and Two(Harry Potter, #8) by JK Rowling

I really wish J.K. Rowling took the extra time to make this a proper book, but it was still a joy to spend another day in the wizarding world.

Childhood’s End by Arthur C. Clarke

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay by JK Rowling

Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power, Politics and Pesky Poltergeists (Pottermore Presents, #2) by JK Rowling

Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies(Pottermore Presents, #1) by JK Rowling

Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide (Pottermore Presents, #3) by JK Rowling

How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia by Mohsin Hamid

Pour Your Heart Into It: How Starbucks Built a Company One Cup at a Time by Howard Schultz

For such a ubiquitous brand, I knew very little about Starbuck’s founding going into this. It is a pretty remarkable story and a solid business biography.

Charlie Munger: The Complete Investor by Tren Griffin

World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by Max Brooks

Distress (Subjective Cosmology #3) by Greg Egan

American Gods by Neal Gaiman

Another highly touted book that I thought was just overrated. I like that it takes place in random real places around the US. Hopefully they see a boost in tourism from the book and the upcoming TV show.

Passengers by Robert Silverberg
