About meI don't read fiction.

About my libraryThis is my reading diary from 1995 to the present. All books are sorted by date in Your library except the new ones that I'm Currently reading. I've also grouped some books in additional collections:

Insightful books were particularly interesting,
Classic books are old and most of them have been historically influential,
Difficult books required more work than I was able to put in,
Badly written books were too long or lacked clarity,
Boring books were a waste of time,
Partly read books are ones that I didn't read from beginning to end.
Books For sale can be bought for a reasonable price + postage.

To find good books in specific fields, select Insightful books and choose a tag.


Favorite authorsNorberto Bobbio, Robert A. Dahl, Ernest Gellner, Robert E. Goodin, F. A. Hayek, Hans Kelsen, Charles Edward Lindblom, Robert M. MacIver, John Stuart Mill, Karl Popper (Shared favorites)
