Oooh 2017 has been a year of heavy reading. There's a few for very different reasons:

- Albert Einstein by Walter Isaacson

- Functional Programming in JS by Michael Fogus

- The Ultimate Sales Machine by Chet Holmes

- Why the Tories Won by Tim Ross

- The Game by Neil Strauss (as a story of self-destruction and a guide on how not to treat women).

- Built to Sell by John Warrilow

- The Hard Thing About Hard Things by Ben Horowitz

I'm currently reading a handful of books on statistics and UX. This may change before the end of the year.

I think there's a few I might return to that are half done but I guess the fact I've put them down half way through disqualifies from being "the best".

Amd just to finish: I love these book posts. A good deal of books I read come from these :)

Thanks for sharing. I read Steve Jobs by Isaacson and it was great and very in-depth! I also want to desperately read his latest biography on Leonardo da Vinci before the year end as heard it is awesome.

Oh I didn't know he had released one on da Vinci! Thanks for the heads up.

Einstein is a great book. I also recommend the NatGeo series after reading it - it's based on the book.
