Books


Published: 2018-12-28; Last update: 2019-08-27

Here, you can find technology and non-technology books, which I am reading, or already have read. This is mainly my placeholder for tracking, but maybe you can also find something interesting.

Sidenote. Many books are very actionable. To better remember main ideas, I make notes while reading, and I usually make them by writing and drawing in the book itself. It’s very efficient. I really recommend that. I used to buy books, bearing in mind, that I will sell them later. That was so wrong. The book is your knowledge and your notebook, it’s much easier to go through the most important takeaways if you made your own notes inside. That’s why I usually do not listen to audiobooks unless I really have to (no paper book available or I’m driving a car).
