Books of 2014

Here they are, the notable books I’ve read in 2014.

  • Authentic Happiness by Martin E.P. Seligman: A must-read from the father of positive psychology (not to be confused with the “positive thinking” fairy tales), defining happiness and offering a very sensible recipe for it, based on scientific research.
  • Mastery: The Keys to Success and Long-Term Fulfillment by George Leonard: The “code” of mastery is a lifelong interest of the author, a former World War pilot, sports journalist, and jiu-jitsu master (a sport he undertook at age forty-six). In this book, he offers a great perspective on what mastery is.

  • The Art of Worldly Wisdom by Balthasar Gracian y Morales: This famous work has inspired a lot of Robert Greene’s modern The 48 Laws of Power, and it’s both a revelation and a delight.
  • The Gunslinger (The Dark Tower, #1) by Stephen King: The first book in King’s Dark Tower saga, the introduction to Roland’s quest. A very entertaining read if you’re into fantasy, horror, and great story telling. The following three books are the sequels, each of them just as gripping.
