The Best Books I Have Read in 2019
I’ve read about 30 books this year – mostly non-fiction. Even though many books had some interesting ideas, I think I would really recommend only a few of them. This is the list of the best books I have read this year and I think you should read them too! I have included links to my reviews for these books and a link to Amazon if you want to buy them or find more information.
Principles is, without a doubt, one of my favourite books of all time. This book teaches you useful principles that will help you better understand yourself, reality and find ways to achieve your goals. This book is very different from most books so I think it may not be for everyone, but I have nothing but praise for it.
Team Human by Douglas Rushkoff
Team Human explores the intricate relationship between humanity and technology. Rushkoff believes there is an anti-human agenda in the tech world that we should be aware of and fight against. He believes that we are social creatures who thrive when we think about others too.

This is the only book you need to read if you want to understand the problems created by social media. Lanier has an informed perspective and he clearly explains why we should be worried about social media. It’s a short book that is bound to make you consider deleting all your social media accounts.
Atomic Habits by James Clear
Atomic Habits is a great book that will help you build good habits and break bad ones. If you think this is just another motivational book, you’re wrong. Clear wrote a great book that is well-written, practical and partly science-based. It may make you reconsider the idea of success and inspire you to improve.
