January 2023 reading list

  • A World Without Email by Cal Newport
  • The Art of Asking by Amanda Palmer
  • Born Standing Up by Steve Martin
  • Mythos by Stephen Fry
  • Essentialism by Greg Mckeown
  • The Hunt for the Silver Killer by David Collins
  • The Perpetual Astonishment of Jonathon Fairfax by Christopher Devlin
  • Evil Beyond Belief by Wensley Clarkson
  • Jonathon Fairfax Must Be Destroyed by Christopher Devlin
  • The Pursuit of Coconuts by Christopher Devlin
  • Liberalism and Its Discontents by Francis Fukuyama

Book of the month is not easy to pick out. Not many of these really rang with me but I did enjoy a venture back into some gentle comedic crime fiction with the Fairfax novels. Perhaps Fukuyama was the book I am most likely to read again. (And Newport’s A World Without Email was already a second read and I got a lot more out of it this time. It hit the spot and I’m making some changes to how I work as a result.)
