My disorganized books notes to help me remember what I’ve read..
Systemantics (John Gall) – Systems theory as the front and center mental framework for understanding complexity.
Fooled by Randomness (Nassim Taleb) – One of my favorite books about probability and nonlinearity.
Thinking in Systems (Donella Meadows) – Fantastic read about moving from thinking individually to holistically via a systems framework of understanding of economics, biology and life in general.
Narrative Economics (Robert Shiller) – Ideas model pathogens and spread in very similar ways. A great breakdown of the history of idea viruses and what we can learn.
Free Will (Sam Harris) – Great essay questioning the role of free will and determinism in life.
The Order of Time – An amazing breakdown of the relativity of time. This book is a journey through the physics of time and our unexamined relationship to time.
The Drunkard’s Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives – A fantastic little book outlining one of the central tenants and struggles of the human mind – coming to terms with randomness in life and business. 🎲🎲
