Reading Collection

I am always looking for more new things to read. I love learning and reading about new ideas, especially when it’s from articles and books recommended by interesting people. This collection is full of reading lists from interesting people. There will also be article recommendations but that is to come.

A List of Book Lists

Dan Wang

I study technology and globalization at Gavekal Dragonomics, a global macro research firm based in Hong Kong and Beijing. Most of what I investigate today is the East Asian industrialization story: the history and the path forward.


Ribbonfarm is a longform blog devoted to unusual takes on both familiar and new themes. What we call “refactored perception.”

David Perell

I host the North Star Podcast, a collection of conversations with the world’s greatest minds. Guests live with joy, learn passionately, and see the world in a unique way.

Patrick Collison

I live in San Francisco and work at Stripe. I grew up in Ireland and previously studied math at MIT. (If you don’t know Patrick, he co-founded Stripe)

Nat Eliason

I’m the founder of Growth Machine, co-host of the Made You Think podcast, and owner of Cup & Leaf tea. This site hosts all of my writing on psychology, self-education, entrepreneurship, marketing, philosophy, health, finance, and improving yourself in general.

Ryan Holiday

I am the author of six books, including The Obstacle Is the Way, Ego Is the Enemy, The Daily Stoic and Perennial Seller.

James Clear

I’m an American author, entrepreneur, and photographer. I’m also the guy behind (naturally). (Just recently wrote Atomic Habits, a new book)

Bill Gates

Bill Gates is a technologist, business leader, and philanthropist.

Zak Slayback

I’m Zak Slayback. I’ve spent my entire career focused on how driven people build great careers. I’m obsessed with finding out what career advice to listen to and what career advice to ignore.

Tommy Collison

I work on growth and international expansion at Lambda School. (I found Tommy’s book list from Trevor McKendrick’s How it Actually Works newsletter)

Aaron Swartz

Aaron Swartz was the founder of Demand Progress, which launched the campaign against the Internet censorship bills (SOPA/PIPA) and now has over a million members. (I found Aaron’s book list through Tommy Collison’s list)
