What books am I reading in 2020?

For the last four years, I wrote blog posts (2019, 2018, 2017 & 2016) listing the books that I read in the past year and that I wanted to be reading during that year. As always, the past year I didn’t read all the books that I’ve listed out in the blog post as I discovered some new ones and changed my focus on some others. But I did read a lot, as I finished ~25 books (and put two books aside that weren’t worth finishing).

What books I didn’t get to in 2019 and have re-added to the list for 2020:

My favorites from 2019:

  • High Growth Handbook: My favorite book from last year as it touched right on the topics that I care about on a daily basis, great interviews with daily practitioners on many topics that relate to High Growth companies including a lot of tactical advice.
  • The Ride of a Lifetime: A fascinating read on how Robert Iger made it’s way to the top of Disney as their CEO. One of my favorites as it shows the personal side of growth he had to go through to reach the top and it provides some insights along the way of how big Disney is of a company.
  • High-Performance Habits: Nothing wrong with learning more about performance habits that could help you improve.
  • Loonshots: A different book from what I would usually read as it went into detail on projects that have changed the world and created innovations that we still benefit from these days (think radar, energy).
  • Secrets of Sand Hill Road: A great book if you want to know more about investing, money and the workings around startups related to investors, deal flows and structures.
