-PHILOSOPHY | SCIENCE | PSYCHOLOGY-
Yes, I combined few different topics that don’t always go hand-in-hand, but so what. Choose one from the list and get your mind bend!
Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari
5/5 Fascinating blend of facts and hypothesis on how we evolved as humans. Written for lay people like myself. It’s amazing, take my word for it.
Lying by Sam Harris
4/5 Harris builds a strong case against telling lies, even the white ones. A short read well worth it.
Meditations: A New Translation (Modern Library)
5/5 A short (45min) yet emotional read that puts everything in perspective. Can’t recommend highly enough. (Read in 2016)
The Little Book of Contentment
The Art of Happiness: A Handbook for Living
Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength
Roy F. Baumeister, John Tierney
