Books For A New Year
“I read for different reasons. Sometimes just to relax. Other times to just experience how a good writer tells a story. I like reading biographies particularly of musicians. But if I throw that all out, I also read to learn to influence how I think and approach problems.” – PC Matic CEO, Rob Cheng.
PC Matic CEO, Rob Cheng, is an avid reader. In any given year he will read two dozen or more books. In the years I’ve worked at PC Matic, I’ve had the advantage of learning about his yearly literary adventures.
I asked Rob for a recommendation of books to share with you for the new year. There were really no parameters. I wanted him to share books he found valuable. Below is that list.
- Dawn of the Code War by John Carlin
- The Art of Invisibility by Kevin Mitnick
- Bitcoin Billionaires by Ben Mezrich
- Glow Kids by Nocholas Kardaras
- The Hacker and the State by Ben Buchanan
- The Infinite Game by Simon Sinek
- Sandworm by Andy Greenburg
- Permanent Record by Edward Snowden
- That Will Never Work by Mark Randolf
Overall Influential Reads
- Devil’s Chessboard by David Talbot
- The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander
- The Accidental President of Brazil by Fernando Henrique Cardoso
This is the time of year when we all make resolutions. What are your goals for 2021? Reading more is never a bad plan. We hope this list is a great start for you.
Stay safe out there, and Happy New Year!
