Lying | Sam Harris

Felt more like an essay of Sam's opinions than a book.

Felt more like a criticism of academia. Radical, had some compelling arguments, but I felt like he contradicted himself sometimes.

For example he seemed to be proud of Steve Jobs because he built a business like an artisan - even focusing on making the inside of the iPhone beautiful - granted. Then he goes on to talk about how great products do not need advertising .

Well, the disconnect here is that, Apple has a big budget for advertising.

Amazing. Interesting how we take things for granted, then again do we need the things we want?

A must read. Most of us live in an unrealistic world, unfortunately. Even though this book makes sense, society is far from achieving anything like this.

Things Fall Apart | Chinua Achebe

Set in pre-colonial Nigeria, this fiction sheds light on a culture that was disrupted by a foreign culture. A friendly "innocent" culture that will never be the same again.
