My Reading List in 2016

When I was younger I used to read all kinds of books, from Mario Puzo’s mafia thrillers to Charles Dickens’ social novels to leadership and other non-fiction books. Although I still read today, I would like to spend even more evenings with a good book in front of me than on the computer. Therefore, in 2016, one of my main goals is to read 15 books. In my already too busy day-to-day life, more than one book per month should be challenging enough.

I have a reading list of over 100 titles and it was difficult to only choose 15 of them, but these are the ones that I look forward to this year:

  1. Henry Kissinger — World Order
  2. Moises Naim — The End of Power
  3. Daron Acemoglu — Why Nations Fail
  4. Greg Steinmetz — The Richest Man Who Ever Lived
  5. David Vann — A Mile at Sea
  6. Gillian Flynn — Gone Girl
  7. Frederick Forsyth — The Kill List
  8. Eric Ries — The Lean Startup
  9. Steven Lee Myers — The New Tsar: The Rise and Reign of Vladimir Putin
  10. Malcolm Gladwell — The Tipping Point
  11. Robin Sharma — The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari
  12. Stephen P. Anderson — Seductive Interaction Design
  13. Ken Segall — Insanely Simple: The Obsession That Drives Apple’s Success
  14. Mario Puzo — Six Graves to Munich
  15. Carlo Ancelotti — Quiet Leadership
