How to interpret the book scores.

How to Win Friends and Influence People

Dale Carnegie

One of the oldest self-help book.

When Things Fall Apart

Pema Chödrön

Think and Grow Rich

Napoleon Hill

Self-help book from 1937.

The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

Robin S. Sharma

A self-help novel, full of great wisdoms packed into a bit weird story.

Calling Bullshit

Carl Bergstrom and Jevin West

How to spot bullshit and what to do after that. Funny and important book.

From Bacteria to Bach and Back

Daniel Dennett

Dennett's latest attempt at explaining our mind and it's evolution.

The Parasitic Mind

Gad Saad

Bit misleading title for the book full of angry arguments against overly liberal policies mainly in USA. I stopped listening to the audio version of the book circa in the middle.

Sum

David Eagleman

40 short stories with a twist at the end from a very imaginative neuroscientist.

Slepé skvrny

Daniel Prokop

Palčivé problémy Česka v podání předního sociologa, který neváhá kritizovat levici i pravici.

The Science Book

DK

A brief history of natural sciences. Heavily biased towards physics and chemistry.

The Missionary Position

Christopher Hitchens

Mother Teresa's morals and believes clearly belong to the past.

The Evolution of Everything

Matt Ridley

If you push enough, everything can be explained with evolution theory.

The Code Book

Simon Singh

The history of cryptography from the acknowledged popular science (maths) book author.

Social Engineering

Christopher Hadnagy

Learn some actionable practices to hack human brain of other people and exploit it's attributes and weaknesses.

Putin's People

Catherine Belton

How Putin raised his power, gained control of whole industries, banks, companies and ruled Russia with the help of KGB and FSB. Not overwhelmingly pleasant to read.

How Innovation Works

Matt Ridley

Innovation is a long, messy and complex process. The contributions of single scientics and inventors is overstated.

Cosmos

Carl Sagan

Sagan is one of the most prominent popular science author and this book was even turned into a series.

A Brief History of Everyone Who Ever Lived

Adam Rutherford

What can modern DNA analysis tell us about our ancestors? A lot actually.

Thirty Million Words

Dana Susking, Beth Suskind

Encourage your child's ability to self-regulate

Outgrowing God

Richard Dawkins

Another briliant book from the great Dawkins. You love him or you hate him.

The Blinkist

The Language Insinct

Steven Pinker

The Great Mental Models II

Shane Parrish, Rhiannon Beaubien

How to create a mind

Genius

Conscious

Annaka Harris

A hard topic to write about. I expected a bit more since Sam Harris (her husband) and some other notable authors and scientists have recommended the book.

The Parasicit Mind

Gad Gaad

Antifragile

Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Taleb introduces another great term—antifragility—which can be found in many areas. And which can be consciously improved. It's more than robustness.

Surfaces and Essences

Douglas R. Hofstadter

Another book from my favourite author Hofstadter.

Lifespan

David A. Sinclair

Edison

Vítězslav Nezval

Bylo tu však něco krásného co drtí odvaha a radost z života i smrti

The Great Mental Models I

Shane Parrish, Rhiannon Beaubien

The Book of Why

Not very engaging but definitely important topic of correlation, causation, statistics and AI.
