Intelligence is simply talking to many people

A List of Books and Articles


... I'm reading this year (2019), and which someone might want to discuss.

Almost all of these are available online for free.

Also, maybe you want to suggest a book based on things I read, or have a link to a free version of a book by the same author or on the same subject?
