    Ok most impactful econ/finance/fintech whatever book?

  • Antidote

    The Power of Now for me

    Facts after reading that book I realized I never needed to read another self help book. I would recommend anyone who is struggling mentally or feels a slight dissatisfied with their life.

    I thought to myself the most shameful thing in life, is that you don't get hurt enough, so that there isn't enough pain to change, but just enough to live out your life in discomfort.

  • A classic but I’ve heard good things about Crime and Punishment by Dostoevsky

  • I revisit This Is Water by DFW almost yearly and it always keeps me centered. More of an essay than a book but still

  • All these self help books are just reworded bible passages

    What about this book interested you? I can't read it for long without putting it down to pick up something else.

  • The Autobiography of Malcolm X

    What about this book interested you? I can't read it for long without putting it down to pick up something else.

    it's one of the books that taught me how to write.

    honestly i loved the story the first time i read it, but that's the kind of books i like. however i understood alot about the industry and creating works of art.

    the second time i read it i learned about writing a story and putting narrative together.

    i used to re write the words out of the book in a notebook line for line and understood narrative that way.

    take it one chapter at a time and live on it. it's not something you read to finish. you read it to imagine.

    magical realism.

    What changed in you?

    What changed in you?

    more understanding of where i was at that time period. for me at the time i read this book i was trying to reconnect with alot of my past s*** i had forgot about. try to figure out people I've known in my family.

    this one was personal. however as far as imagery just read the book this one will hit everybody different especially the ending.

  • In recent years the books that have been most impactful in shaping my views have been Machiavelli's 'Discourses on Livy' and of course 'The Prince'.

    In a weird way I also think reading John Stuart Mill's essay 'Utilitarianism' set the ground work for me, because it (along with some other things) convinced me that a lot of moral philosophy is just circular nonsense, which made Machiavelli's unabashed consequentialism more appealing.
