Nonfiction: 1. Unusual historical events or people: Examples are the WW2 books by Ben MacIntyre or books by James Burke. 2. Books from the Very Short Introductions (VSI) series or MIT Essential Knowledge series: I really want the VSI on Stoicism. I've already read or purchased the following VSIs: Nothing, History of Physics, Genomics, Organized Crime, Knowledge, Anxiety, Risk, Causation, Behavioural Economics, Logic, Tragedy, History of Physics, Demography, Complexity, Ancient Philosophy, Books about how baseball teams were built: I'd like to get In Pursuit of Pennants by Mark Armour. I enjoyed Big Data Baseball by Travis Sawchik and Astroball by Ben Reiter baseball or basketball books: Some of my favorites are Fab Five by Mitch Albom, Showtime by Jeff Pearlman, On and Off the Court by Red Auerbach, Bottom of the 33rd By Dan Barry and Bad Boys by Cameron Stauth Productivity books based on research and evidence: Atomic Habits by James Clear is one I'd like to have. I really liked Principles by Dalio and Manage Your Day To Day by Jocelyn Glei. Literary Science Fiction: I love everything by Robin Sloan, and also really loved The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North and Replay by Ken Grimwood. I'm really into science fiction that explores what it would be like to live one's life over and over.
