I have been planning this exercise for quite some time now, and only today I am finalizing my personal list of reads for this year - 20 books of 2023.
After putting this list together, I realize how heavily it is packed with books about management, leadership, and self-development in general. This probably happened for a good reason. At the same time, some amazing books about mindfulness, human biology, and a beautiful futuristic novel written by Stanisław Lem make this list more balanced and leave some space for things beyond one's professional life. I look forward to re-reading some of these books for the second or even third time, but most of them are completely new to me.
I truly believe that some books are written for everybody, some for many and some for few. Therefore I’m planning on sharing my Post-Read Summaries for every book in the list, analyzing and reviewing the key ideas, and leaving a final call for every individual read up to your discretion.
If this list is going reveal a new scope of good literature for some of you, then the whole effort was meaningful.
