Reading takes precious time but it’s worth it. Even 15 minutes a day can have you reading 25 books a year. And according to this article it improves your health and well-being. Here are a couple of books I recently took off the shelf:
Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness — Written by the winner of the 2017 Nobel Prize in Economics Richard H. Thaler and Harvard Law Professor Cass R. Sunstein, this book was first published in 2008. It was named one of the best books of the year by The Economist and the Financial Times, and is a New York Times Bestseller. Nudge draws on behavioral science research to show that no choice is ever neutral and that using choice architecture may help to nudge us toward better decisions for ourselves, our families, and our society. There’s always room for self-improvement.
Principles: Life and Work — This #1 New York Times Bestseller was written by Ray Dalio, founder of the investment firm Bridgewater Associates and one of the world’s most successful investors and entrepreneurs. Here, Dalio shares the unconventional principles that helped him create unique results in life and business. Known as the “Steve Jobs of Investing” he started his investment company from his 2 bedroom New York apartment at the age of 26. He has been named one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World by Time Magazine and one of the 100 Wealthiest according to Forbes. I’m so impressed by people who start small and make it big. This promises to be an interesting read.
