About meI don't read fiction.

About my libraryThese are the books I've read since 1995, including many that I've read multiple times. All books are sorted by date in Your library except the new ones 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 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.
I've also catalogued one book Written by me.

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


Favorite authorsNorberto Bobbio, Robert A. Dahl, Francis Fukuyama, Robert E. Goodin, F. A. Hayek, Hans Kelsen, Charles Edward Lindblom, Robert M. MacIver, Philip Pettit, Karl Popper, Jeremy Waldron (Shared favorites)
