Past Books (From Jul 2022 onwards)

The Master and Margarita

A very magical book. Fantastical.

Atlas Shrugged

The importance of the individual + mind. Capitalism. Value creation as a means of life creation. Physical manifestations of creativity that generate value for others. Life is necessarily harder than death.

The Creative Act: A Way of Being (Audiobook)

Be an artist. Self. Understand the waves and harmony of the universe.

Elon Musk

Surge and then surge some more.

Make Something Wonderful

Fear pales in the face of death.

Thinking in Systems: A Primer

Take a step back. See the bigger picture. Everything is connected. Systems run the world.

God and Gold

Global system of capitalism and democracy. Individualism/Free play + capitalism = powerful blend.

The Inner Game of Tennis

It's always a mental game.

Man's Search for Meaning

Basically how I see meaning in life. Quotes to live by. There is only one thing that I dread: not to be worthy of my sufferings. The way in which a man accepts his fate and all the suffering it entails ... gives him ample oppurtunity ... to add a deeper meaning to his life. He who has a why to live for can bear with almost any how. Responsibleness the very essence of human existence. Live my thoughts instead of putting them on paper. Doesn't the final meaning of life, too, reveal itself, if at all, only at its end, on the verge of death. A man who removes each successive leaf from his calendar and files it neatly and carefully away.

Stranger in a Strange Land

Outside looking in. Inside looking out. Political statement about religion. Weird component about religion at the end. Grokking. Age does not bring wisdom but it does give perspective.

Talent: How to Identify Energizers, Creatives, and Winners Around the World

Empathy. Venice and Athen intellectual environments. Address the confidence crisis. Enhance the productivity curve.

Presidential Leadership and the Creation of the American Era

The illusion of a perfect leader. Necessity to consider what is needed in the context of the time

The Hard Thing About Hard Things

Wartime vs peace time founder. The importance of the team, product, market, timing, and founder. Dealing with the invisible challenges (including emotional and psychological).
