As much as I loved the first book of the Stormlight Archive series,
The Way of Kings
, I enjoyed the second book much more. If you like fantasy, I'd highly recommend this series. My only cautionary note is that I consistently found myself reading into the wee hours of the night----- and at 1,110 pages, you can imagine how many nights this came to.
A thought-provoking take on work-life balance.
Articles like this Farnam Street gem remind me how much thought and research needs to go into forming an opinion----- and how I haven't always adhered to this method in the past.
An interesting conversation with Ray Dalio, founder of Bridgewater Associates, the most successful hedge fund in history. I've been a fan of Dalio for a number of years because of his open-mindedness, search for truth, and promotion of an idea meritocracy. This wide-ranging conversation covers books, his reading process, mental illness, meditation, the importance of pain, and a lot more!
Perhaps most interesting is how only one of the companies stayed in the Top 10 over the three periods of time, as well as the fairly dramatic change in industries.
