When I left the library at the beginning of the year, I left with something like 1500+ pages of books. It was a little overwhelming and honestly I thought to myself, I don’t need to read like this. But the best way to eat a whale is by taking a bite and so I started knowing that namely Team of Rivals could be one of those books I stopped and started all year. I didn’t. It took three weeks (with one break while we were in Arizona).
Read hard stuff. Read sometimes boring stuff. Learn things.
The Emperor of All Maladies by Siddhartha Mukherjee
