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

  • Influence, by Robert Cialdini
    • Felt very smarmy and deceptive. The research was sorely lacking. I only don't regret reading this because so many people reference it, and it was an acceptable introduction to the field. Chapter 3 was good, though.
  • Psychology, 7th Edition, by David G. Myers
    • For a long time, the only textbook I ever read all the way through. Deservedly popular, excellent throughout.
    • Here is a sample of the author's work from a different textbook.

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.
