My favorite books of 2019

Read 55 books this year. The shortest book was “If You Can” by William J. Bernstein, the longest - “The Snowball” by Alice Schroeder. Reread the all time great “Dune” by Frank Herbert and two Yuval Noah Harari books. There were three photography books: “Wall and Piece” by Banksy, “Ara Güler's Istanbul” and “Icons of Men's Style” by Josh Sims.

Lessons learned from my first podcast appearance

A few days ago I was invited to be a guest on the “Basic Block” podcast - probably the most popular crypto podcast in Russia. In spite of me writing a note on what I'm going to say & key points, which you can read here, I sucked at it. At least that's how I felt after doing it. Fortunately, Basic block radio is one of the few podcasts, where authors take on the hard job of editing an episode. Thanks guys! So what you end up listening is the edited (often abridged) version, not the original conversation.

You can listen to the episode here.
