Wanted to share the best books I’ve read in 2016.
However, on Goodreads sometimes a book’s top comment has only 1 star and 555 likes (read “this book is a complete disaster, DO NOT READ”). But when you read it, you like it so much you could barely take a break. But that happens rarely. Average rating is quite adequate.
Excellent written biography of the remarkable man! I think the author really managed to understand Einstein. Not sure I fully understood the general theory of relativity. Although, the basics are written using a very simple language. I took many notes from the book.
Liked it very much. I think I just became a fan of stoicism.
A must-read book. I would like to read it in my eighteens. Now, when I am 27, I haven’t learned much from this book. On TED the author only gives the basic idea: the connection of happiness and flow. In the book, this topic is covered in greater detail and many life examples are given.
Без воды, с юмором, дельными советами и жизненными историями.
There are no other editions, except Russian. Sorry, English reading folks.
Another must-read to expand the horizons.
