One of my goals this year was to read more than in previous years and I wanted to share with you some of the best books I read in 2022, some of them are recommendations from other people and others were simply in the long Wanted to read list. These books covered a wide range of topics and all provided valuable insights and information.

  1. "Thinking, Fast and Slow" by Daniel Kahneman. This book goes in-depth into the psychology of decision making and how the brain processes information. It is a fascinating read that help to better understand the thought processes and make more effective decisions. The book contains many examples from different scientific experiments about how our brain acts in different conditions.
  2. "Time Smart" by Ashley Whillans. This book explores the importance of time and how to use it more effectively. The author covers topics like time management, work-life balance, and the benefits of taking breaks. Like the previous one, this book shows some examples of everyday life where we think that something is very important and we can not postpone it and the reality is that it is not so. This book is a must-read for people looking to optimize their time and increase productivity.
  3. "Why We Sleep" by Matthew Walker. In this book, Walker discusses the science behind sleep and the numerous benefits it has on our physical and mental health. He also offers practical tips for improving sleep quality and getting a good night's rest.
  4. "A Short History of Nearly Everything" by Bill Bryson. For those interested in science this book covers a wide range of scientific topics, from the origins of the universe to the evolution of life on Earth and humans. It is a thorough and entertaining read that leaves us with a greater appreciation for the world around us and how fortunate we are to be in an age where even a minimal understanding of it is possible.
  5. "Little Book of Common Sense Investing" by John C. Bogle. Bogle, the founder of Vanguard and a pioneer of index fund investing, offers practical advice for avoiding the most common mistakes that can set even the best-intentioned investors up for failure. He advocates for a low-cost, passive approach to investing that focuses on diversification and long-term growth rather than trying to beat the market. It's a great resource for anyone looking to build a solid investment portfolio.

Overall, these five books offer a wealth of knowledge and insights, and I highly recommend them to anyone whose reading desires fall between these topics.

Happy reading!
