Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup
I didn't know that Theranos was so fucking crazy. Just from casually listening to the news I thought it was just some girl who bit off more than she could chew and then started lying. No, this is the Final Fantasy 7 house of silicon valley start ups. I was captivated by this guys book the whole way through. I thought 350 pages would be long but it flew by. Also the stereotype pairing of young girl engineer and creepy piece.of shit incompetent old guy is really common in Silicon Valley. It's the worst. I need to get out of here.

12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos
This book is life anecdotes backed up with psychology for how to become an enlightened person. He also really likes the Bible. (Belief not necessary to enjoy the book). I think he has some interesting points but I disagree on a couple things, for instance when he says it's completely unreasonable to not want to have kids or that "striving the maximum good for most people" is specific enough to let you figure out what you should do in a day. I learned a lot of cool things about lobsters though.

Flowers for Algernon
Wow this is a really sad book. I never had to read this for school but I'm glad I read it now.

Small Business For Dummies
I found this on a table at work and it was from 1998 which is funny because computers and the internet were super new back then. This is an overview for someone who has no clue how to start a business

Web Client Programming with Perl
This is a basic and outdated book but it's good for learning about perl and html request interactions. It's another textbook though so that was kind of boring to read.
