I commonly lean towards non-narrative and generalistic readings, aiming to draw links between concepts originating from diverse sources. I prefer articles, research papers, or practical exploration when it comes to comprehensively understanding a specific technology. Also, I advocate for quitting books, different levels of reading and taking notes. Among others, here's a collection of books that had a significant impact on me:

  • How to Think Like a Roman Emperor book cover

    This was my first insight on cognitive economics. Like with M. Lindstorm's 'Small Data', I was amazed at the impact psychology has on the product market. This book underscores the importance of considering consumer behavior in product design and marketing decisions, and this extends to digital products as well.
