I enjoyed Nick Bilton's book, American Kingpin, so much that I decided to check out another of his books, Hatching Twitter: A True Story of Money, Power, Friendship, and Betrayal, especially because it's about one of my favourite apps.

You'd like to invest for the long-term, but you can't take the stomach churns that result from being fully invested in the stock market, no matter how rewarding the returns can be over long periods. The Permanent Portfolio: Harry Browne's Long-Term Investment Strategy is aimed at you. The authors have compiled a strategy that they believe generates decent returns in most economic periods - at the very least, it will lower your portfolio's volatility, even if you have to sacrifice returns in the process.

I generally select books by either their topics or because they come highly recommended; I rarely seek out books by a certain author. Tim Ferriss is an exception. I was enormously influenced by two of his books, so I decided to read The 4-Hour Chef: The Simple Path to Cooking Like a Pro, Learning Anything, and Living the Good Life, even though I have little interest right now in growing my culinary skills (but maybe someday!).
