What I'm reading 📚
After reading “Ready Player One” by Ernest Cline (it’s a great book, 100 times better than the movie), I’m currently reading “Finite and Infinite Games” by James Carse.
I don’t have a strong opinion about this book yet. It swings from painfully difficult and boring to brilliant and mind-bending. Some ideas have made me think so much that I can totally understand why the person who recommended me this book said “it will dramatically change the way you experience life”.
PS: You can find the free pdf here.
