NON-FICTION 

I have to admit that I am obsessed with Biographies. I always read two/three biographies in parallel. 

The works of Walter Isaacson on Einstein and Steve Jobs, are among my favorites.

I think that non-fiction biographies are often way more dramatic and exciting than fictional books.


FICTION 

Favorite Science Fiction Book of all time: Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson.

If you consider when it is written, it is probably the most visionary and influential SciFi piece of literature ever… Period.

I also read a lot of other non-fiction books, from science to buddhistic literature. Currently my favorite author of the latter is Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche. Every book is amazing, especially the ones about meditation.

And every single one of Tim Ferriss' books – I'm a huge fan.
