This came in via email and I thought I’d crosspost here.
I like Barry Ritholz daily summary of news – he embeds John Mauldin’s weekly eletter, which I also like. http://www.ritholtz.com/blog/ is where I subscribed to his daily email. With that email, I don’t need to read much else for current events.
I don’t subscribe to the Times or the Wall Street Journal but when their articles rise on Google News, I tend to read those.
I read all the stuff on our site – endurancecorner.com – as the writers are people that I know and trust. I don’t read forums, other than Endurance Corner, as I avoid sources of noise.
I check google news too often – I’d be fine checking every 48 hours but check a few times per day.
That’s about it. When I have time, I read non-fiction. A key focus for me in 2012/2013 is creating more space in my life for kids, writing and reading.
The book list that follows has been helpful – I particularly like all of Gordon Livingston’s writings. For business, Charlie Munger’s essays and books are excellent. I read the Drucker essay, below, once a year.
Buffett: The Essays of Warren Buffett
Drucker: Managing Oneself
Karp: Happiest Baby On The Block
Kahneman: Thinking, Fast and Slow
Le Guin: Tao Te Ching
Livingston: Too Soon Old, Too Late Smart & Always Keep Dancing & How To Love
Munger: The Psychology of Human Misjudgment
Munger: Poor Charlie’s Almanack & Seeking Wisdom
Shiller: Irrational Exuberance
Taleb: The Black Swan, Fooled by Randomness and Antifragile
