I find it hard to get things done because I'm always jumping from one project to another. This book promises to help fight that.
The following are personal notes on various books that I read. They are not really reviews, though it should be possible to determine how I feel about a book by looking at the notes. Feel free to use these notes to help your own reading.
Creativity has always enchanted and frustrated me. I read this in the hopes of getting a handle on it.
After reading a post about a DIY Y-Combinator, I wanted to see exactly what goes on in YC. So I read this book.
A no-nonsense whirlwind tour of the essential difference between LLCs, S-Corps and C-Corps. A great foundation for going to talk to an attorney or accountant or someone who actually knows what theyre doing.
In my opinion, one of the best ways to start a business is to bootstrap. This book covers some important information about bootstrapping, and provides a great balance between theory and practical advice.
Sketchnotes are a great way to visually record the analysis of a presentation. They are beautiful in and of themselves, but their real magic is in encoding a personal interpretation of presented material. This book goes into how to create them and gives tips. It also comes with a 70 minute video, which is similar in content to the book, however the live sketchnoting video is illuminating.
A good analytical approach to reading books with purpose. Readers for leisure need not apply. Although the author references scientific and mathematical works, the book shines when discussing how to gain meaning and understanding from books that are more concerned with the humanities.
Some books, such as fiction, don't really need notes taken. This is a log of these.
- Entire Harry Potter series - J. K. Rowling (2013)
- Hyperbole and a Half - Allie Brosh (January, 2014)
- Dad is Fat - Jim Gaffigan (February, 2014)
