Books to read? Derek Sivers’ reading list and blog

October 14, 2010

Here’s a book list from Derek Sivers with notes about each of the books… He’s read in the neighborhood of 100 books in the past 2 or 3 years. Here are the notes on one called “A Guide to the Good Life: The Ancient Art of Stoic Joy” – by William Irvine – just one of the many I need to read, or maybe just read his notes. The notes are quite detailed and may eliminate the need of actually reading the book.

He was the founder and owner of CDBaby and some other stuff. After building it into a multi-million dollar company he figured out that he wanted to give it away to charity and retire…. It’s quite a story. He has a blog that I think I could probably spend hours browsing and reading. One of the entries describes why he decided to give it all away. Pretty interesting!!
