2018 Reading List

I read 18 new books and re-read 4 for a total 22 books this year. Not quite the 26 I was shooting for. Again I probably spent too much time consuming pocket articles and podcasts.

I’m not a person prone to vices, but I find it hard to pull myself from the daily meltdowns in the whitehouse. It is my reality TV. I consume far too many articles and podcasts on it.

I suspect that had something to do with finally landing in the coveted 1% of pocket readers. 20 million words and 280 equivalent books seems pretty high to me, but who knows. I should really dedicate iOS’s text-to-speech and my wireless headphones (AirPods & Bose QC35s). I consume 99% of my articles and podcasts this way.

Now back to books. Here‘s everything I read this year with some of my favorites at the top.

Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly by Anthony Bourdain

Bourdain is a fantastic writer. I highly recommend the audiobook version which Bourdain reads himself. What could be better than hearing his story from the man himself?

Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House by Michael Wolff

I enjoyed this book way too much. A scary portrait of an unfathomably bad president.

Creative Selection: Inside Apple’s Design Process During the Golden Age of Steve Jobs by Ken Kocienda

One of the best books on the process of design at Apple. So much of what seems obvious today required years of iteration and collaboration.

Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup by John Carreyrou

This was wild scam that I wouldn’t have thought possible until reading it. I wish we knew more about what was going on in Elizabeth’s mind and how she restionalized the lies with people’s lives on the line. Will make a good movie soon I’m sure.

Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow by Yuval Noah Harari

Yuval takes everything from Sapiens and tries to project what our past behavior means for our future. Big takeaway: we should be treating animals better. Humans will soon arrive at a similar fate.

Molly’s Game: From Hollywood’s Elite to Wall Street’s Billionaire Boys Club, My High-Stakes Adventure in the World of Underground Poker by Molly Bloom

Entertaining read after watching the movie. Bizarre that running a poker game is illegal.

Bird Box by Josh Malerman

Fun page-turner with an original concept. Read this in a day and a half before watching the movie.

It Doesn’t Have to Be Crazy at Work by Jason Fried

I love how lean Jason and DHH keep their books. Great advice. Nothing extra.

Straight to Hell: True Tales of Deviance, Debauchery, and Billion-Dollar Deals by John LeFevre

Entertaining quick read similar to Tucker Max back in the day.

Altered Carbon (Takeshi Kovacs, #1) by Richard K. Morgan

A fun exploration of a future where our bodies are just sleeves for our minds and the very rich are effectively immortal. A good read before watching the Netflix show.

Losing My Virginity: How I’ve Survived, Had Fun, and Made a Fortune Doing Business My Way by Richard Branson

Finding My Virginity: The New Autobiography by Richard Branson

Not as good as Losing My Virgnity, but still a worthwhile read.

Open by Andre Agassi

I’m not a tennis fan, but this was an honest and well told biography.

Pitch Ninja: Persuasive Pitching and Presenting (The Virtual Dojo Book 1) by Mike Moyer

Great pitch advice especially around business plan competitions

Tribe of Mentors: Short Life Advice from the Best in the World Hardcover by Tim Ferriss

Some good advice. A lot of ok advice. Good book to read a few pages of every once in a while. Took me about a year to finish.

The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement by Eliyahu M. Goldratt

Required reading for an operations course. I appreciate the novel approach, but the whole marriage storyline should be cut.

I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream by Harlan Ellison

Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win by Jocko Willink

I normally wouldn’t read a leadership/self-help book, but I’ve enjoyed hearing Jocko on some podcasts and gave this a shot. It has good, if somewhat obvious, leadership lessons.


American Kingpin: The Epic Hunt for the Criminal Mastermind Behind the Silk Road by Nick Bilton

My favorite book of 2017. Amazing and well told entrepreneurial story. More non-ficiton writers should copy Nick Bilton’s style. It is as entertaining as reading any fiction.

The Upstarts: How Uber, Airbnb, and the Killer Companies of the New Silicon Valley Are Changing the World by Brad Stone

I thought I knew these stories pretty well, but this goes to another level of detail. It is an inspiring read and feels like the first chapter for these companies.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling

I read this to get back into the wizarding world before going on the Harry Potter walking tour in London.

The Metamorphosis of Prime Intellect by Roger Williams

The beginning and end of this book are pretty disturbing, but if you can look past that, this is a very unique take on artificial intelligence run amok.

The Ultimate Guide to Getting the Best Deal on a Diamond Engagement Ring

Little known tips to make the most of your big purchase.

With a purchase as big as a diamond engagement ring I did a tremendous amount of research to figure out how exactly to get the best deal. Since this is a one time purchase for me, it felt like a waste not to share all my research with my fellow guys out there.

Here is your guide for getting the most for you money when diamond engagement ring shopping.

Where to Buy

This is where your largest savings will come from.


Avoid chains and local stores. I support local businesses when I can, but you would have to be insane to buy a diamond ring locally. Local jewelers have high overhead (inventory, salespeople, physical storefronts, etc.) and have to jack up the price on the same stones to stay in business. Online is the way to go.

I heard that the resale value of diamonds is low so I looked for used / second-hand rings, but they really aren’t any cheaper. There is a funny site named “I Do Now I Don’t” for no longer wanted rings, but again they are more expensive than other options.

I also looked at man-made diamonds, which are starting to become more popular. I figured they are chemically the same as real diamonds and must be cheaper. Surprisingly they are still 20–30% more expensive than other options. I suspect this will change in the future, but for now they are more expensive and have a stigma attached to them that they aren’t “real” diamonds.

My go-to for most everything is Costco and I had heard Costco had Tiffany quality rings for good prices. Their prices are significantly better than any jewelry store, but for the same quality Blue Nile is still roughly 10-20% cheaper.

For the uninitiated, Blue Nile was the first to sell diamonds online in 1999 and is now the world’s largest online jeweler. They operate with a high volume, low cost business model. Blue Nile is a publicly traded company so we know their gross margin is around 19% and on loose diamonds / engagement rings they make less than on small ready-made jewelry etc. Compare this to the 50% margin you will find in the typical jewelry stores and the 60% at Tiffany’s. Local stores can’t come anywhere close to Blue Nile’s prices. This is where your biggest savings will come from. Buy online.

Blue Nile also has excellent customer service. I had to do a resizing and had zero issues. Blue Nile is absolutely, without a doubt, the best value for the money. Don’t let local jewelers sway you with lies about quality. Everything is easy to verify with GIA certificates and all diamonds are bought on the same market.

Understand the 4Cs and Where to Make Tradeoffs

Cut: This is the most important C and the one you can’t compromise on. A diamond is essentially a prism of light, and diamond cutters work to let the most light shine through each stone. You want ideal or near ideal cut, which means that the angles and proportions of the diamond have been cut to produce the ultimate brightness, fire and scintillation. Just go with the ideal and sacrifice on the other Cs to make it happen. People often say they want X carats, but what everyone notices and what people actually care about is that diamond sparkle. A big diamond that is cut poorly will look horrible.

Nearly colorless is what you want

Color: The color of a reasonable diamonds goes from D (colorless and most expensive) to J (starting to get noticeably yellow and cheaper). D diamonds are astronomically expensive for something that is 100% not noticeable. H/I diamonds are the sweet spot where they appear white, but they are significantly cheaper. Pair an H/I diamond with florescence (see below), for the best deal.

Carat: Carat is actually a measurement of weight, not size. Small changes can make a difference in price and aren’t really noticeable to the naked eye. My biggest advice is don’t sacrifice cut for carats. Dull big diamonds are sad to see. Don’t do it.

You can also save some money by avoiding exactly .5, .75, 1, 1.25, 1.5, 2 carats, etc. Get a bit under a defined marker for a better deal. You won’t be able to tell the difference.

Carat is also very location and budget dependent. What may look normal in New York looks wildly out of place in the midwest. Stay in the ballpark of what your social circle goes with here. I do think there is an ideal diamond size for each ring size, but that hasn’t been embraced yet. Giant diamonds on little fingers are impractical and look ridiculous.

Clarity: Clarity is the least important C. Natural diamonds have flaws and clarity is a measure of flaws, known as inclusions and blemishes. Many of these inclusions are difficult to see to the naked eye even when you are very close. The grades here are not as defined so you will want to inspect a photo of the diamond or see it in person. Some SI1 and SI2 (slightly included) can’t be seen and many VS1 and VS2s (very slightly included) can’t be seen. I went with a VS2 and can’t find any flaws even up close. You can find some “eye-clean” SI2s, but it will take some digging.

Extra C – Florescence: Fluorescence is a measure of how a diamond responds when subjected to ultra-violet light like daylight or fluorescent lamps. About 25% of diamonds exhibit some degree of fluorescence where they emit a blue-ish glow.

Bluish fluorescence can make a faint yellowish diamond appear more colorless in UV light like natural daylight. Pairing a florescencent diamond with a lower color grade can give you the appearance of a more colorless, more expensive stone at a significantly lower price.

Florescencent diamonds used to sell at a premium, but recently they have been selling at a discount because any inclusions are viewed as flaws. A small number of diamonds with very strong bluish fluorescence may look oily so you want to confirm that isn’t the case before making a purchase.

Band Advice

This is largely personal preference and can be done locally for a reasonable price as long as you buy the loose diamond online.

Metal: Platinum is the strongest and most durable of the options. It will hold the stone the most securely. It is also the most expensive.

Prongs: Minimal prongs may look cool, but the more prongs the safer the stone is. My fiance quickly knocked one prong out of place which could have been problematic with a 4 prong ring, but is a non-issue with a 6 prong ring.


Use Ebates for 2% back: Sign up for Ebates and get 2% back for shopping on Blue Nile. 2% on a diamond ring is too much to pass up. No need to install the browser extension or anything. Just sign up and click through their Blue Nile website link before making your purchase.

You’ll get an additional $10 by using my link when you sign up.

Cheat Sheet

  • Cut: Ideal is the only way to go. Don’t sacrifice here.
  • Color: H/I is the sweet spot especially when paired with Fluorescence for a diamond that appears colorless.
  • Carat: Budget dependent. Never sacrifice cut for carats.
  • Clarity: “Eye clean” which can be found in VS1, VS2, SI1 or SI2.
  • Blue Nile: Buy online for the best deal.
  • Ebates: Use for 2% back at Blue Nile.

Happy Shopping! 💍💍💍

10 Simple Tips for the Perfect Sleep

aka the easiest way to be smarter, healthier, and prevent Alzheimer’s

This could be you

Sleep is hands down the easiest way to make yourself smarter, healthier, happier, and more productive. It is astounding to me how many people are doing it incorrectly.

Here is how to radically improve your life with minimal effort.

  1. Prioritize Sleep—You can’t possibly sleep 8 hours if you don’t give yourself 8+ hours of time to sleep. People need different amounts of sleep and you can figure out how much you need by sleeping without an alarm for a week and seeing when you naturally wake up. I know I need to be in bed for a little over 8 hours to get 7 quality hours of sleep and feel my best.
  2. Consistency—Pick a sleep time and do not vary it by more than 20 minutes a day. Our bodies love routine and pushing your bedtime back an hour or more ruins your deep sleep. It doesn’t get made up by sleeping in.
  3. Dark & Quiet — Use blackout curtains in your bedroom and always travel with a good cheap eye mask and earplugs. It is like a little oasis no matter where you are sleeping.

The perfect sleep temperature

4. Keep it Cool — Sleep in cool temperatures (ideally 65 degrees). A low body temperature helps get us into deep sleep. This may seem really cold to some of you, but give it a try and thank me after. I use a Nest Thermostat so I can easily schedule everything and run the fan periodically at night.

5. Invest in Your Bed— People resist spending a lot on a mattress because it is expensive. Dumb. You spend 1/3 of your life in your bed and a good mattress will last 25+ years. The best mattress for pretty much everyone (side and back-sleepers) is the Tempurpedic Cloud-Supreme Breeze. It will change your life. There are hundreds of direct to consumer foam mattresses brands out there and they are ok, but Tempurpedic is still king at the high end.

A $4,000+ bed may sound crazy, but brand new Tempurpedics can be had on Ebay for 50+% off. I have bought two Tempurpedics this way and they both arrived brand new from one of the many mattress stores that are liquidating nowadays. Here is a link to all the new ones on Ebay.

it’s called fashion

6. Use Blue Light Blocking Glasses before bed They look weird I know, but studies show that they are more effective at producing melatonin than popping melatonin pills. Put them on 2–3 hours before bed. Ideally you would avoid all screens before bed, but it is not entirely realistic nowadays so these goggles help block out some of the harm. I also dim my Phillips Hue lights as the night progresses. Of all the different blue light blocking glasses I’ve tried these are my favorites.

7. Avoid Alcohol / Drink Early — Drinking destroys your sleep. If you are going to drink, please stop drinking well before bed so as much as possible is out of your system by the time you go to sleep. Day drinking is way more fun anyway. No one needs that last drink before bar close.

8. Avoid Caffeine/Sugar— The half-life of caffeine is about 6 hours, which doesn’t mean that caffeine is out of your system in 6 hours. It means that if you go to bed 6 hours after having coffee then half of it is still in your system. It is the equivalent of throwing back half a cup of coffee right before bed. Do yourself a favor and limit your afternoon caffeine. I don’t have coffee after 2pm and I know I should really stop at noon.

Some people like having a dessert or something before bed. Don’t do it. Eat a handful of nuts if you are hungry. Sugar wrecks your sleep.

9. Separate Bedrooms—If you have a partner, sleeping in separate beds can do wonders for your sleep. Sleeping separately allows each partner to customize their sleep environment and avoids the additional movement, heat, and noises that disrupt sleep. It is also a lot more common than you think.

10. Track It — A sleep tracker is useful for understanding what works best for you and keeping yourself accountable. My favorite right now is the Fitbit Inspire HR. It is the smallest heart tracking wristband at the moment and has a solid week plus battery life. The Apple Watch Series 4 + Pillow app is a workable alternative if you are willing to charge it everyday for 1-2 hours. There is also the Oura Ring, which tracks everything in a ring, but it is pricey ($300+) and comes with 9 week plus wait.

Introducing Bevy & The End of Ownership

Why Bevy?

We are big believers that startups have to start with a mission. The world doesn’t need another social app or addicting game to keep us glued to our phones.

We want to create a world where you aren’t restricted by what you own.

We deeply believe in the power of experiences. We are not defined by our possessions; we are defined by the sum of our experiences.

Buying that new gadget won’t change who you are as a person, but an unforgettable weekend camping trip with your friends almost certainly will.

The reality is that many experiences require specialized equipment.

Normally for these activities, you have to buy everything, which is prohibitively expensive for many people and takes up precious storage space 99% of the time when it’s not in use.

Many of us city dwellers live in small apartments and storing a beer pong table in the living room is not well-received. Buying and storing camping or tailgating equipment is completely out of the question.

We are bringing the same access model used by Netflix for movies and Spotify for music to all the other stuff taking up space in your house.

What is Bevy?

Bevy provides everything you need, but don’t want to own, for awesome experiences. We curate the best and easiest to use equipment, drop it off at your door when you need it, and pick it up when you’re done.

These experiences can be social activities like camping, tailgating, picnic, karaoke, and beer pong.

They can be more utilitarian things like cleaning supplies, inflatable mattresses, and tools.

Or gadgets you want to try, but aren’t sure if you want to invest in and buy, like the Oculus Rift (it’s super cool!) and the Nintendo Switch.

We plan to continue adding more experiences, so sign up for our newsletter to stay up to date.

How does Bevy work?

Check out our list of experiences designed to help you own less and live more.

Pick your dates for our completely free delivery and pickup. No tips accepted! We will make sure you have everything you need for an amazing experience.

Have a blast by yourself or with friends and family. We’ll take everything back when you’re done.

How will the world be different with Bevy?

We hope Bevy can immediately act as a memory catalyst. We want to enable experiences with your friends and family that weren’t possible before Bevy.

Posting photos of your camping trips with your parents, karaoke nights with your friends, or your grandma trying oculus rift for the first time warms our hearts #OwnLessLiveMore.

In the long term, Bevy will be a successful company when people start making buying decisions based on us. We want people to think “Should I really buy this or should I just bevy it?”.

Every item you bevy instead of buying leads to fewer items in landfills and less wasted storage space.

We deeply believe, and science supports, that people are happier when they own fewer, higher quality things, and spend more money on experiences.

How can you get involved?

Give Bevy a try today and share with your friends!

Feedback is the lifeblood of a startup so we would love to hear what you think and any experiences you may want to bevy.

You can also follow us on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Snapchat.

Own Less. Live More.

2017 Reading List

roughly in order of rating

I ended up reading 18 of my 26 book goal this year. I chalk this up to listening to too many podcasts and being in business school where we read portions of many books and tons of articles. I will try to get back to the books in 2018 and listen to fewer Pocket articles and podcasts.

I have written notes on some of my favorites below.

American Kingpin: The Epic Hunt for the Criminal Mastermind Behind the Silk Road by Nick Bilton

My favorite book of 2017. Amazing and well told entrepreneurial story. More non-ficiton writers should copy Nick Bilton’s style. It is as entertaining as reading any fiction.

Lying by Sam Harris

Nice quick read on the value of being honest. Wish more people operated this way.

The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, the Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made by Greg Sestero

A bizarre and entertaining story. In a weird way I admire the drive and boldness of Tommy Wiseau. He brought his vision to life when no one believed in him.

Artemis by Andy Weir

Nowhere near as good as The Martian, but still entertaining and original.

Angel: How to Invest in Technology Startups — Timeless Advice from an Angel Investor Who Turned $100,000 into $100,000,000 by Jason Calacanis

Great actionable advice on angel investing and a pretty entertaining read. I hope to put it to use in the future.

What Happened by Hilary Rodham Clinton

I was curious to hear how HRC reacted on the night of her loss and I couldn’t help reading this. I have spent way too much time reading articles about Trump and election this year. It is a guilty pleasure. I suggest the audiobook where she reads it herself. It feels like an extended podcast.

The E-Myth Revisited: Why Most Small Businesses Don’t Work and What to Do About It by Michael E Gerber

Great concepts around thinking of a business as a series of processes. Small business owners that believe their business wouldn’t survive without them should read this immediately. The made up stories are kind of annoying though.

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo

I generally avoid self-help books, but I do think decluttering can dramatically improve your life. Choose what to keep, not what to get rid of. +1 star for being short.

Rework by Jason Fried

Nice actionable business tips in an appropriately short book.

Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawande

About as interesting as a book on checklists can be. Takeaways: checklists are a great compliment to the falliable human brain, don’t get surgery unless you absolutely have to.

Getting to Yes: Negotiating an Agreement Without Giving In by Roger Fisher

Great primer on negotiations. Covers many of the topics we discussed in class.

Hatching Twitter: A True Story of Money, Power, Friendship, and Betrayal by Nick Bilton

I read this immediately after finishing Nick’s American Kingpin. He is a fantastic writer of non-fiction. A good read on the dysfuntional company and amazing creation that is Twitter.

The Upstarts: How Uber, Airbnb, and the Killer Companies of the New Silicon Valley Are Changing the World by Brad Stone

I thought I knew these stories pretty well, but this goes to another level of detail. It is an inspiring read and feels like the first chapter for these companies.

The Three-Body Problem (Remembrance of Earth’s Past, #1) by Cixin Liu

The Dark Forest (Remembrance of Earth’s Past, #2) by Cixin Liu

Much better than the first book. Some very clever future inventions.

Death’s End (Remembrance of Earth’s Past, #3) by Cixin Liu

Annihilation (Southern Reach, #1) by Jeff VanderMeer

Authority (Southern Reach #2) by Jeff VanderMeer

After watching the trailer I had high hopes for the trilogy, but I was dissapointed. The first book was pretty good and the second was pretty horrible. I am still looking forward to the film.

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

6 Things You Need to Know Before Launching Your Podcast

I often get asked about how to get into podcasting so I figured it was finally worth writing this post.

To make the most of your launch you really want to make it into the New & Noteworthy section of Apple Podcasts. It isn’t entirely clear how Apple decides who to put in there, but I have a few ideas as to why I made it and have been cruising in there for over a year.

The coveted New & Noteworthy section

Audio quality: If you have the most amazing content, but your audio quality is crappy no one is going to listen. Here is the equipment I use for Tech In Chicago. All in it cost me <$400 and there are definitely cheaper ways to do it. Having nice equipment also means less editing. I suspect Apple won’t even give you the time of day if your audio sucks.

Launch with 4+ episodes: You want to maximize the number of downloads you get in the first 8 weeks and launching with 4 episodes is a way to juice your numbers. I would also recommend not deciding if you like or don’t like podcasting until you’ve done 5–7 episodes. I definitely struggled early on to both listen to my guests’ answers and think of my next question.

My cover art

Beautiful cover art: Make sure your cover art looks great and is legible at small sizes. Most peoples’ first impression of your cover art will be as a 125×125 box in the search results. You could pay a designer $100 to make you some cover art and it would be money well spent, but if you have some basic photoshop skills it doesn’t take much to make something nice and clean. Cover art sounds trivial, but it is way more important than people give it credit for.

Steve Wilson of Apple Podcasts on cover art

Get reviews: Message your friends to review your podcast when you launch. It is nice to have social proof, but more importantly, it is likely the single biggest factor for Apple’s New and Noteworthy section. I ask my listeners for reviews at the end of every episode and have a PS in my signature asking for reviews when people reach out about the podcast.

I setup TechInChicago.co/Review to redirect to Apple Podcasts so I can send that URL around instead of a messy Apple Podcasts URL.

Write show notes: Discovery on Apple Podcasts is a mess. The biggest driver of new listeners is actually Google for many podcasts. The minimum you can do for this is writing show notes for each episode that include topics covered and links to things mentioned. I write my show notes as I edit the podcast so it shouldn’t take that much extra time. Transcriptions can be super helpful, but I have been reluctant to spend the money so far.

Other platforms: Apple Podcasts accounts for the majority of podcast listeners, but be sure to submit your podcast to other platforms too. Tech In Chicago is on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, and TuneIn.

I hope that helps. Feel free to reach out with any questions you may have. Happy podcasting!!
