Book List


My Favorite Non-fiction Books

This is a list of non-fiction books I love (for fiction books, it’s here).

I keep this list short, as one should have few favorite things. I would have omitted many from all the books I have read and reviewed.

1. Sapiens - a Brief History of Humankind

Changes your perspective after knowing the what, why and how, we evolved in 100,000 years, with so much in merely the last 5,000 years!

2. Tuesdays with Morrie

Life lessons from a dying sociology professor, such as: Every morning, imagine a bird on your shoulder. Ask the bird: Am I going to die today?

3. Happier

We learn many things from books, yet we never learn about happiness – which is obviously the most important thing in life!

4. How to Win Friends

This book was first published in 1936, and yet it is like the holygrail on how you should behave and make people like you.

5. Ego Is The Enemy

To be or to do? Which will you be?

6. Meditations by Marcus Aurelius

Stoic philosophy from a great man. Keep in mind how fast things pass by and are gone.

7. Brain Rules for Baby

Everyone should have a kid, so I must include a parenting book in this list. I like science, so a book on how to raise a smart and happy child with scientific reasonings is my cup of tea.
