Recommended Reads

Never mistake ‘information’ with ‘knowledge.’ The former can be found everywhere, and does not need to have a basis in fact. The latter, however, requires critical analysis, independent verification, and personal reflection. Information perpetuates the status quo, but knowledge changes lives.

These ten books are a source of constant reflection for me and continue to shape the way I see the world. They are also just down-right fun to read! If you are looking for a new read, a re-read, or an unexpected book recommendation, I hope these help!
