  • I've read some fantastic books lately.

  • Here are a few you might want to read this summer.

  • Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders

  • Anything about Lincoln is interesting,

  • I admire him and the tough things he faced, including having his son die being among the worst.

  • And it is striking this balance between the tragedy of life and the joy of life.

  • It's about grief and purpose and it's very touching.

  • Everything Happens for a Reason by Kate Bowler

  • You've got this one person who's sick and is trying to figure out how they should deal

  • with their bad news.

  • You don't want to think of outcomes as just being random, you want to be able to connect

  • them to something you control.

  • She's not asking you to cry for her.

  • She's just telling you what happened.

  • Origin Story by David Christian

  • The whole theory of Big History is to have a structure that makes it easy to understand

  • and explain things.

  • I think it helps people to have that understanding that now we have big blocks of knowledge,

  • but the big blocks of knowledge relate to each other in a strong way.

  • for me this broad knowledge of how all the pieces fit together.

  • You know, to me that's interesting.

  • Factfulness by Hans Rosling

  • It's pretty fantastic because he really talks through how you should think about the world.

  • For the first time in this book, he teaches you a categorization of four tiers that is

  • super helpful.

  • Like tier 1: no bike, tier 2: bike, tier 3: some cars in the picture,

  • tier 4: a lot of cars, too many cars.

  • I never got to tell Hans how much I liked his book, but the world would be better if

  • millions of people read it.

  • Leonardo da Vinci by Walter Isaacson

  • What Isaacson does is say what made da Vinci special.

  • He's most known for his art.

  • He thought of himself as a military engineer and a scientist, an expert on music.

  • And so he really defines the term Renaissance man.

  • These are books that I'd recommend this summer.

  • I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did.
