I didn't read as much as I'd have liked due to life complications, but I particularly enjoyed:
* Manufacturing Consent (Edward Herman & Noam Chomsky)
* The Psychedelic Experience (Timothy Leary)
* Young Men and Fire (Normam Maclean)
Don't Be Evil: How Big Tech Betrayed Its Founding Principles — and All of Us
Stolen: How Finance Destroyed the Economy and Corrupted Our Politics
It's a textbook. For a very good overview of Freud, Jung, Adler, Horney, Sullivan, Erickson, Maslow, etc. In each section, it feels like you found a theory of personality you like best, then it gets better. Each time, they recommend further reading. For example, one good one is Our Inner Conflicts: A Constructive Theory of Neurosis by Karen Horney.
Also, Personality Theories: Journeys Into Self by Williard and Patricia Frick is an interesting workbook. You don't have to fill it out, it's helpful read what it's asking and think on it, then also think of those questions when understanding people.
Attachment Theory: Attachment in Adulthood, Second Edition: Structure, Dynamics, and Change by Mario Mikulincer and Phillip R. Shaver. For an easier read, Bad Boyfriends: Using Attachment Theory to Avoid Mr. (or Ms.) Wrong and Make You a Better Partner by Jeb Kinnison is on Audible and Kindle and despite the title is very canon to modern adult attachment theory.
Currently reading These Truths: A History of the United States by Jill Lapore where she argues for the pressing relevance of our foundational principles. It’s a hefty tome of about 800 pages, so I still have a ways to go.
Next up are two books which have been featured in several end of year lists: Say Nothing: A True Story of Murder and Memory in Northern Ireland by Patrick Radden Keefe and Exhalation by Ted Chiang.
Reading aloud with my 10 year old daughter: Little Women by Louisa May Alcott (Penguin’s 150th anniversary annotated edition with a Patti Smith foreword). Enough said about how influential this experience is for both of us.
* Kiss The Ground Josh Tickell
* Do Purpose: Why Brands with a Purpose Do Better and Matter More by David Hieatt
* The Future of Humanity: Terraforming Mars, Interstellar Travel, Immortality, and Our Destiny Beyond Earth by MichioKaku

* * * 95 Best Books most impacted me in 2019:
Braiding sweetgrass - biographical story of the mix of native spirituality and science
What the eyes don't see - discussion of the policy and governmental resistance to disclosing the Michigan water crisis
Weapons of math destruction - the ethical and cultural costs of artificial intelligence at-scale
A science fiction short book where rival agents send each other letters and attempt to thwart each other.
It is also has some of the most beautiful prose/poetry I've ever seen that made me re-read each section over and over. I've been an avid reader since childhood and this is the first book to have that impact on me. Not at all what I was expecting.
Fabulous book about how certain individuals strive in what they do, and what separates these people from the rest of us. It has very interesting stories as well of how these individuals became so accomplished in life.
* The Sword of Kaigen by M.L. Wang
* Cradle by Will Wight
* Arcance Ascension by Andrew Rowe
Sleeping is important, and since I started doing more (and improving the quality of), I feel better and get more done.
I personally don't have a lot of knowledge in the field (the author has an entire professional career of researching) so I take at lot of the advice, at least what seems logical and reasonable to me, at face value. I'll read the link you posted and consider the points as well, though - thanks for that.
