Special thanks to David Baeza, Valerie Pearcy, @pixtory, Tabitha Dunn and others who tweeted. Their comments are a real tweet 😉

I’ve read his book twice and plan to do a third read. I don’t often say it – but this one is very, very good. Go get it and read it.

  1. <p>I’ve now read 4 more books on Peter’s list. I read the Buffett book, which told me more about the man; I had previous read Buffetology, written by Buffett’s ex-daughter-in-law. I feel sure we would not be in the finance mess we are now in if more people followed Buffett’s principles for investment and money-management. I read Darwin’s Autobiography, which filled out some more of the picture, since I read all 4 of Darwin’s greatest books before my trip to the Galapagos Islands last summer. Medina’s Brain Rules is an excellent look at how the brain performs best. Ramo’s The Age of the Unthinkable is a good first look at how to adjust to the dangerous world we find ourselves in; the key is resilience, the ability to adapt quickly and effectively to changes in our enemies; as our enemies (terrorists, viruses) are quickly adapting to us.</p>
