Memoirs, by David Rockefeller -- I thought I'd give this autobiography a try after liking "Titan," Chernow's biography of John D. Rockefeller, as much as any biography I've ever read. I bought this book last year after the author's passing, and despite a fascinating life well lived, I thought the book itself was a little flat.
The Financial Crisis Inquiry Report -- There is some risk of overdosing on all the retrospectives about the 10-year anniversary of the crisis, but this book is worth a mention. It is a very interesting reference even if you don't read it cover-to-cover. If nothing else I keep it on my bookshelf as a visual reminder of what is possible. A free pdf version is here.
Buffett only gets a passing mention in the final version but his full testimony (audio and written) is a masterclass on a range of subjects.
The Art of Choosing -- I heard a rousing endorsement of this book (although now I can't remember the source) that lead me to read it. I thought it had some interesting parts, but the title is somewhat misleading and description are somewhat misleading -- this is a discursive tour of several partially related topics, mostly centered on agency and free will.
A Template for Understanding Big Debt Crises -- This is a free e-book published by Bridgewater's Ray Dalio. I only read a hundred pages or so, but there is a lot of interesting history here to go along with Dalio's framework. A good summary by the author is here.
Principles: Life and Work -- This is Dalio's "main" book which he released about a year ago, based on a popular pdf collection of essays he had compiled over the the years. I read most of the original essays and some of this book, and there are some useful thoughts here regardless of your profession or background.
