I Am A Strange Loop

Written after the sudden loss of his wife, this offering by the master of cognitive science is both profound and heart-retching. At half the size of GEB, it is likely more approachable than his masterwork. It is just as thought provoking, but lacks the earlier creativity and style of GEB.

The History of Piracy

Why would a site dedicated to analytics and professional development recommend books on piracy? History is a great teacher. Pirates were some of the earliest and most well documented entrepreneurs. The history of piracy is a case study. Read it to be inspired by those early leaders and risk takers. Their lessons still apply today.
