What I’m Reading (Oct 2016)

Life, biographies, software, true crime, and some novels.

  • The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life by Mark Manson – A superb book. Rather than not caring about anything or caring about it all, the premise to carefully select what you will care about. A book I will read again.
  • The Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance- A recognized book about growing up poor in far from ideal conditions.
  • Born to Run by Bruce Springsteen- His autobiography. Interesting for the early years and his scrabble to attain success. He somewhat glosses over the last two decades.
  • Original Gangstas: The Untold Story of Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, Ice Cube, Tupac Shakur, and the Birth of West Coast Rap by Ben Westhoff
  • Dogfight: How Apple and Google Went to War and Started a Revolution by Fred Vogelstein- An interesting view on how the development of the smartphone.
  • Losing the Signal: The Untold Story Behind the Extraordinary Rise and Spectacular Fall of Blackberry by Jacquie McNish and Sean Silcoff- What a tale about the fall of Blackberry.
  • Who Killed These Girls? Cold Case: The Yogurt Shop Murders by Beverly Lowry- An unbelievable true-crime story. I recall when they murders occurred and how it traumatized the people of Austin.
  • The Heart of Hell (A Marko Della Torre Mystery) by Alen Mattich
  • The Ragged End of Nowhere by Roy Chaney
