my biggest goal for 2020 is to read more books. Especially books that aren't solely dedicated to boost my career or increase my developer skillset but books that either broaden my horizon or entertain me.
So please feel free to recommend your favourite books in the comments!
So far, my favorites are:
Homo Deus by Yuval Harari. This book really expanded my horizon and changed my expectations regarding the future of the humankind, considering gene manipulation and artificial intelligence.
The Complete Maus by Art Spiegelman. This graphic novel is not only beautiful drawn but also tells the dramatic story of Art's Jewish family during the Holocaust.
The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling. Yep, I've never read them as a child. Started six weeks ago with the first one and been half through the 6th by now. I love them, they're great!
Disrupted by Dan Lyons. Got that as a present from a good friend and it's hilarious! Dan worked as a journalist for a big, renowned Newspaper before. Now he enters the startup world as a "content creator" for Hubspot and encounters the secret tales of company candy bars and Nerf blaster wars.
Blackout by Marc Elseberg. The story of some hackers attacking the European power grid is not only awesome but really well and accurate described - that accurate, that the author nowadays gets invited to countless security conferences and even advices governments!
