I’ve read 112 books since 2003

I just finished the book, Play by Stuart Brown, M.D. It is outstanding. A true “must-read”.

play

It is also the 112th book I’ve read since I started keeping track (in 2003) of the books I read.

Check out my updated reading list.

I try to read a book a month. I read mainly non-fiction. It takes me 7 – 14 hours to finish a book, depending on the size and how much note-taking I do.

I would echo what Ryan Holiday said:

“There was a time in my life where I didn’t read much, and now I look back on it as the most superficial and bleak point of my existence. Ever since I allowed myself to be pulled down the rabbit hole of books–the endless chain of citation, influence and recommendation–my life has improved exponentially.”

Some Companies Compared

I have written about business many times before:

* Follow up to the Amazon posts: Amazon is down 20% for the year.

Here is an update (Oct 24, 2014) on the numbers for many tech companies:

About the highlighting… Short answer: Red = bad. Green = good.

Long answer: EPS (Earnings per Share) numbers that are too low, I’ve highlighted in red; ones that are high, I’ve highlighted in green. P/E (share Price to Earnings) numbers that are are too high, I’ve highlighted in red; ones that are surprisingly low, I’ve highlighted in green.

(Since the 7-1 split, AAPL’s volume has gone crazy.)
