As the year draws to a close, most people create lists: (i) all the books I read this year, (ii) by top X number of books from this year, etc.—in the spirit of scaling back, paring down, and focusing on the essentials, I thought doing an anti-list would be a fun twist!
Of all the books you have read this year (or ever), what are the ones that you wouldn't recommend for the below reasons:
- Stopped reading/didn't finish for "quality" reasons
- Finished but reflecting on wish you spent that time reading something else
I recognize that there will be subjectivity here as someone may have branched out from their usual productivity books to sci-fi fiction and thought "yeah, nope, that's not for me," so a couple sentences on the why could be helpful.
Especially keen on hearing about those books that seem to be trending in all tech circles at the same time as I try to avoid the hype (e.g. Sapiens, Thinking Fast and Slow, Zero to One, etc.).
Let me know what your don't even waste your time on this or save your time and listen to the toplines on Blinkist! There's always more knowledge to be gained but let's help each other throw out the lesser stuff and focus our limited time on the quality stuff!
