I’ve bought this book for friends and keep recommending it to people. It’s the last efficiency/lifehack book you’ll ever need to read. Every page is a joy, every insight one you’ll want to share, but then you can also just lean back, enjoy life and relax.

After Steve: How Apple became a Trillion-Dollar Company and Lost Its Soul

Tripp Mickle gained access to an unprecedented amount of Apple executives to write a behind-the-scenes book of a company that known for keeping the behind-the-scenes firmly locked down. Juicy, insightful, personal.

The Gentlemen

Entertaining story, larger than life characters, some (graphic) violence but also a lot of quirky and funny moments. One of those movies to save for a Saturday evening. Now available on Netflix.

Fuzz - When Nature Breaks the Law

Mary Roach’ books are all worth checking out. I’ve bought and read and enjoyed every single book she wrote, from Bonk (the curious coupling of science and sex) to Gulp (adventures in the alimentary canal) and now her most recent book: Fuzz: when nature breaks the law. Interesting, funny and ethically challenging chapters about animals around the world interacting with humans and each other, and breaking our laws and natures laws.

It’s funny, dramatic, painful and beautiful… and it will make you think about your own legacy and what you want to make of it.

Goldilocks

A female crew of 7 astronauts steals a spaceship and sets out on a mission to save earth, in a future world that’s increasingly anti-feminist. Sounds like science fiction? Unfortunately too many topics in this book are uncomfortably close to reality. After reading this book you’ll start recognizing parts of the book in life around you. Apart from all that, it’s a page turner and thrilling right until the end.

The antisocial network

Another author who’se books I pre-order as soon as they’re announced, and then usually read and finish within 24 hours. This one, about the GameStop short squeeze (if you don’t know what that means don’t worry, it’s all explained in the book) and the following (almost) banking crisis. Reads like a thriller, but it happened, and you’ve probably witnessed some of it.

Another Round

Watch it with a beer or glass or wine. A beautiful movie, funny at times but also dramatic. Loved it.

Bad Blood

Elizabeth Holmes, once heralded as the new Steve Jobs, is today going on trial in one of the biggest fraud cases ever. The unraveling started with a few articles by John Carreyrou, which led to this book. It’s a great book because you’ll start of liking and understanding Holmes and then as the book progresses you’ll slowly start realizing she really is a fraud. Reads like a thriller!
