A book everyone should read at some point is "A Brief History of Time: From the Big Bang to Black Holes" by Stephen Hawking.
Another inspiring book I recently read is "Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams" by Matthew Walker.

I didn't like the book "Rich Dad Poor Dad" by Robert Kiyosaki and Sharon L. Lechter... reality is often not as simple as it is described in this book.

If you did't read yet George Orwell's 1984 I suggest you to do it ASAP. It illustrates perfectly the actual world and the govern surveilence. It was a fiction, but what is written there became real. And it shows why we really need Bitcoin for our privacy and freedom.

The name of the book I read in currently is Sin & Spirit (Demigods of San Francisco Book 4) It is a wonderful science fiction book, the characters of the book are beautifully written and I loved them very much. I read the previous three books and really I am happy with this book and this series. If you like science fiction, suspense, supernatural action, comedy, and romance, this series is recommended.

I've been reading Nelson Demille's books recently, specifically the John Corey series. They're not going to blow your mind or anything but they're entertaining enough and the main character is quite funny. I would recommend reading Night Fall first and there's a great twist at the very end that connects two major world events that had me shook  :D.

If you did't read yet George Orwell's 1984 I suggest you to do it ASAP. It illustrates perfectly the actual world and the govern surveilence. It was a fiction, but what is written there became real. And it shows why we really need Bitcoin for our privacy and freedom.

It is scary how accurate that book has become. I think it's one of the best of it's kind of the dystopian novels. It's quite amazing how many words/terms that were used in the book that have now entered the lexicon like doublethink, newspeak, Big Brother, thought crime, and then of course "Orwellian" which was inspired by his writings.

Yes indeed... Sad, but true. And another book which also describes how our reality is Vernor Vinge's True Names (1981).

I will write a quote here from the book which may raise your interest: "I think the Mailman is taking us on one at a time, starting with the weakest, drawing us in far enough to learn our True Names - and then destroying us".

Of course, in our times, the mailman is the govern, hungry for our privacy and personal data - for our True Names.

I usually read books that are more on inspirational, motivational, leadership, spiritual, personal finance and a little bit of sales.

However, the book that I'm reading right now is "Life Is Short by Jennifer Arnold, MD and Bill Klein"

It teaches me on how to deal with my life's journey, especially when bad things happen or I do something bad. It's part of life, and we have to learn from it.

Other books that I have finished reading are the following:

- God Is Greater Than Our Biggest Problems by Bro. Bo Sanchez (I feel that I need to read it again because I'm a bit heartbroken)
- Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki
- Before You Quit Your Job by Robert Kiyosaki
- The Power of Starting Something Stupid by Richard Norton
- Start With Why by Simon Sinek
- How To Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie (unfortunately my uncle borrowed it years ago but never returned it yet)
- The Millionaire Messenger by Brendon Burchard (he's my favorite motivational speaker, and I watch his videos from time to time)
- The Motivation Manifesto by Brendon Burchard
- 25 Ways To Win With People by John Maxwell
- 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership by John Maxwell (unfortunately the book was not returned yet by my former colleague years ago)

You never know when you need to perform an exorcism... Or, wouldn't you rather call a professional?



If you are into economy, read Mises and the Austrian economists. Lots of free books to read and download online here: https://mises.org/books-library/

From Mises Human Action (https://mises.org/library/human-action-0) is recommended.

Another one: The Causes of the Economic Crisis, and Other Essays Before and After the Great Depression (https://mises.org/library/causes-economic-crisis-and-other-essays-and-after-great-depression)

Quote
This book refutes the socialists and Keynesian, as well as anyone who believes that the printing press can provide a way out of trouble. Mises shows who was responsible for driving the world into economic calamity. It was the inevitable effects of the government's monopoly over money and banking.

That is my favorite book after all, I still remember the first lesson and it is about rich do not work for money while  poor and middle class are working for money. We cannot be rich if we are just focusing to be an employee, we should be an entrepreneur who have good management skill that can help us to become successful in the near future.

Yes, I love to read. But my nature is a little different. The book that I like to read, I read it again and again, even though it is memorized, whether it is a text book or a story book, like a snack. So my book repository is very short.

How sweet is the word 'friend'! Friendship is a symbol of intimacy, affection and harmony, love and affection, and a symbol of mutual bonding and emotional bonding. Cracks in friendship are painful but not uncommon; When it is noticeable. Many friends today are enemies. Dishonesty and betrayal are not desirable for a friend. But the unexpected is still happening. Why friends are only creating distances between parents, siblings, close relatives and laid-back neighbors in the conflict of mutual interest. Violence is spreading. As the ant takes the leaf of a fallen tree in danger, people also want to avoid danger, seeking some shelter. Need a good friend. Where people are suspected of being friends with blood, even if they are suspected of being friends, the book can be a real friend to people.

You are right in saying that electronic books never touch our minds just like the original books. Then the writers wouldn't write a book Everything wont to be done by electronic books. There are many authors' books that remind us of our childhood memories they're really fun.

There are pearls of knowledge scattered in every book. So a seeker of knowledge has to read innumerable books. He will find intelligent sayings in any book. So it cannot be said that you can become wise by reading these books. Knowledge has no boundaries. So we see, there is no end to the book. I reading "You Can Win"

I'm reading the Bible now, I want to understand why this book is the most popular in the world.


Same here. Although I know that it's the most popular in the world, and I've read a few bible verses ever now and then while studying in a Catholic school, aside from reading and hearing the gospel when I go to church. And I believe that it's about time and simply overdue for me not having enough time to read the whole Bible instead.

Does audiobooks count as “reading a book”?

I’m currently listening to “five lives of cheater”. This a LitRPG (literature role play game). Dont know about all countries, but in Russia it is very popular in last years. It is usually regular science fiction or fantasy book with elements of rpg. Main character is leveling during the plot, gains skills and equip.

I am not a book lover. I'm the kind of person that do not love to read books or articles. I just read my notes/books in college/highschool when we will be having a quiz, long quiz, and major exams. Although that's the thing, I envy others who love to read books because it is additional information. I want to read books bit I am too lazy for it.

 I'm currently reading Slaughterhouse Five, an autobiographical novel by Kurt Vonnegut about the bombing of Dresden during World War II and also I recently wrote about it in my essay via studydriver.com/slaughterhouse-five-essay/ (https://studydriver.com/slaughterhouse-five-essay/). The book is really very interesting, it combines historical facts, but with a literary description, it is more interesting than dry facts for textbooks.

Just finished reading (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5219257.msg54596549#msg54596549) The Most Dangerous Man In The World: The Inside Story On Julian Assange And WikiLeaks, written by Andrew Fowler, Cypherpunks: Freedom and the Future of the Internet, by Julian Assange and Cryptonomicon (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5219257.msg54652698#msg54652698), by Neal Stephenson, which is a book with references to Cypherpunks and their mailing list, inspired from Tim May's Cyphernomicon.

While I was reading Cryptonomicon (which is a 918 pages book), I found out that the author wrote three other books related to this one, although not related to Cypherpunks anymore: Reamde (912 pg.) Fall; or, Dodge in Hell (720 pg.) and The Baroque Cycle. The Baroque Cycle contains itself three novels: Quicksilver (720 pg.), The Confusion (815 pg.) and The System of the World (912 pg.). Besides, Neal Stephenson wrote one more book with references to the Cypherpunks: Snow Crash (448 pg.).

I ordered one book of The Baroque Cycle (The Confusion), True Names by Vernor Vinge (which was inspired by Tim May's masterpiece True Nyms and Crypto Anarchy (the essay being included in a reprint of Vinge's True Names)), Snow Crash, Orwell's 1984 (which is a book which inspired all Cypherpunks' activity) and two more books written by Julian Assange: Underground (500 pg.) and When Google Met Wikileaks. If I'll get all these, I have to try to find just one last book of Assange - The Unauthorised Biography (350 pg.). And, of course, all the other Stephenson's books mentioned above. Only if I can find them in Romania. If I'll find them all, I think I'll finish reading them by Christmas of 2021. Excepting 1984, all the others can be found in English, which makes them even more difficult to read, besides their length.

I just started reading Coingecko's book on Decentralised Finance. How to Defi (https://landing.coingecko.com/how-to-defi/). I am currently about half way and I can recommend it to anyone who is interested in DeFi but doesn't yet now a lot about it.
In the book they also offer a lot of examples and guides to some of the more popular DeFi products and they link to a lot of interesting articles in the book. So for anyone who wants to dive deeper into a specific topic they can without having to go though a lot of trouble finding relevant articles.
The book itself isn't to long at 212 pages but if you calculate in all the articles they reference I would say you can about triple that figure.

https://i.imgur.com/wXqHaaT.jpg https://i.imgur.com/DzmN5Rh.jpg

This book is a present from my mom and it has a funny history: she bought me this book by mistake :) She thought it is about Ross Ulbricht's Silk Road (the book is written in English and she doesn't know too much English lol). In fact, the book is Peter Frankopan's The Silk Roads: A New History of the world and I'm sure it is a very good reading. I added also a photo of the back cover, for the review written there. This book is also huge (521 pages), but I hope to finish reading it until I'll receive the other books I ordered.

I just bought a few more books. First one is Vernor Vinge's True Names, previously advertised by me inside this topic back in January (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5219257.msg53693215#msg53693215). At that time I read it in a pdf form, but I really wanted to have it also in physical form -- and I finally have it!

https://i.imgur.com/hGuodg3.png

The hard copy of the novel contains a huge preface (about 187 pages long), which include some essays about privacy and cryptography. The most important of these essays is Tim May's True Nyms and Crypto Anarchy. This is itself a great reading but I couldn't find it anywhere on the Internet. If anyone finds it, feel free to share it. But I believe this essay was written especially for prefacing the book True Names, thus there are low chances to find it on the Internet.

Suelette Dreyfus & Julian Assange - Underground

It is a fascinating book about the rise of Australian hackers and phreakers from 1980s, including the early activity of Julian Assange which, by that time, was known under the nym Mendax. For all Assange lovers this is a must read.

Besides , when it was launched in 1997, the book's price was 400$!!! I managed to buy it now at about 19$. Get it while you can!

I read it since 2018, but in electronic format. Now I managed to obtain also the physical form of the book. I suggest you all to read it. It is a book about state surveillance taken to the extreme, a book which inspired also the Cypherpunks' work, as its action became a reality.

I tend you reads usually two books at the time, one about business and investing and one novel I read before sleeping when I am already tired. Reading a business book right before sleeping is not such a good idea for me because I forgot too many things in the morning. The business book I am reading right now is Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki , and the Novel is The Guardians by John Grisham. Both are great books I can only recommend.

I like reading fantasy. It distracts me from my daily hustle and bustle. I can call Terry Pratchett's books ideal and constantly looking for something like this on the internet library page (https://pdfmania.com/). I used to have a lot of paperback books.

This is one of the two books with references to Cypherpunk's activity, the other one being also authored by Neal Stephenson: Cryptonomicon (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5219257.msg54652698#msg54652698). I am really anger to read it, as not many books talk about these brilliant minds!

https://i.imgur.com/8dciXSD.png

My last book from the order I made is Neal Stephenson's The Confusion, which is a part of the so-called Baroque Cycle. It contains three books - Quicksilver, The Confusion and he System of the World. I'll post a picture with all three books once I'll have all of them at hand. I decided to buy also Baroque Cycle, as I understood that the action is somehow related to the one from Cryptonomicon, although it doesn't refer anymore to Cypherpunks.
