Only a handful of books over the past couple of months, but still a fun exercise to ask ChatGPT what it thinks of me. Indeed, no insights for some of the recent releases. Some books were not worth further recommendation, but I am still glad I read it. Some others are excellent and fun, especially Geezer Butler’s memoir and data-driven insights into our generational differences.
