I know we had threads on this before, but new books come out, opinions change blah blah blah…
I’ll phrase it differently too. if you were/are a parent, what 5 books would you want your kid to have read, or which books do you wish you would read earlier in your life? Whether it’s to encourage self actualization, become finance bsd or what have you. I’ve been pretty limited to business themed books mainly, so what comes to mind:
Barbarians at the Gate
7 habits of highly effective people (or Power of Habit)
Antifragile + Black Swan (i’d consider it part 1 and part 2 of the same book)
Random Walk down Wall Street
Rich Dad Poor Dad (laugh, but a few of my non-finance friends found it very eye opening and accessible)
For entertainment purposes I’ll say Michael Lewis, but I couldnt choose just one lol.
STL - you were probably one of the kids at the exam, having hard time following instructions to drop the pencil weren’t you? Jokes aside, The Elegant Universe seems like a nice change of pace for me, I’ll get my hands on that.
The Master and Margarita by Bulgakov is a must for everyone
The underground masterpiece of twentieth-century Russian fiction, Mikhail Bulgakov’s THE MASTER AND MARGARITA was written during Stalin’s regime and could not be published until many years after its author’s death. When the devil arrives in 1930s Moscow, consorting with a retinue of odd associates—including a talking black cat, an assassin, and a beautiful naked witch—his antics wreak havoc among the literary elite of the world capital of atheism. Meanwhile, the Master, author of an unpublished novel about Jesus and Pontius Pilate, languishes in despair in a pyschiatric hospital, while his devoted lover, Margarita, decides to sell her soul to save him. As Bulgakov’s dazzlingly exuberant narrative weaves back and forth between Moscow and ancient Jerusalem, studded with scenes ranging from a giddy Satanic ball to the murder of Judas in Gethsemane, Margarita’s enduring love for the Master joins the strands of plot across space and time.
