Notes: The Art of Invisibility

This is the first section of key takeaway notes from The Art of Invisibility by Kevin Mitnik, a compelling source of information for a one wanting to understand the risks of not considering privacy online. Not just reserved for the Snowden’s of the world, it is a great read to help understand how your online accounts or identity can be used or stolen. These are essentially pen-notes for myself, rather than narrative on the topics covered.

How to Think like a Roman Emperor

Donald Robertson’s latest book How to Think like a Roman Emperor is an exciting and unique mix. We have many books on the life of Marcus Aurelius and separately his Stoicism mainly from Meditations. In How to Think Like a Roman Emperor: The Stoic Philosophy of Marcus Aurelius, Donald combines both to give context as well as guidance. Robertson starts with an introduction to Marcus Aurelius, his birth in 121 A.

The Happiness Equation

A great follow on from the recent reading of Unshakeable. This time its Neil Pasricha with one of my favourite reads so far in 2019 The Happiness Equation: Want Nothing + Do Anything = Have Everything. Thankfully the lessons in the book are simpler than the title! Want to know how to create some happiness, understand burnout and have a handful of common sense concepts – Neil calls them ‘secrets’, but we’ll forgive him!
