Revision as of 02:04, 22 November 2013

A (currently unfinished) list of all the books I've read, by category, then in alphabetical order, so I can keep track of them. You may find it useful if you think I have good taste, owing to how it is categorized. You will also find occasional mini-reviews. See also my Reading list.

Books I want to read again

Books I am fine with never reading again

Those that I have read once

Books I regret reading

  • The Art of Learning, by Josh Waitzkin
    • Faff. It's a book about how great it is to be Josh Waitzkin and about the phenomenology of competition, not a book about how to learn. Read Playing to Win instead.
  • The Lucifer Effect, by Philip Zimbardo
