What a fun thriller! And realistic too - the author is a former CIA agent, and this read like you got to go inside the mind of a CIA - and a Russian SVB - agent. I listened to this on audio per Steve Sarners recommendation and it was perfect to plow ...more

Red Sparrow by Jason  Matthews
“Her parents noticed, when Dominika turned five, that the little girl had a prodigious memory. She could recite lines from Pushkin, identify the concertos of Tchaikovsky. And when music was played, Dominika would dance barefoot around the Oriental carpet in the living room, perfectly in time with the notes, twirling and jumping, perfectly in balance, her eyes gleaming, her hands flashing. Vassily and Nina looked at each other, and her mother asked Dominika how she had learned all this. “I follow the colors,” said the little girl.
“What do you mean, ‘the colors’?” asked her mother. Dominika gravely explained that when the music played, or when her father read aloud to her, colors would fill the room. Different colors, some bright, some dark, sometimes they “jumped in the air” and all Dominika had to do was follow them. It was how she could remember so much. When she danced, she leapt over bars of bright blue, followed shimmering spots of red on the floor. The parents looked at each other

“I’ve always loved Russian humor,” said Nate. “It’s a shame there’s so little of it.”

The Moonshot Effect by Kate Purmal
we will deconstruct the Kennedy Moonshot to extract what we can replicate and apply to moonshots in business.
I wonder whether there are significant differences in character between moonshots with and without strict financial constraints. I imagine that Moonshot did not. And differences between moonshots like Moonshot that had a very clear and never-changing endpoint vs startups that may pivot many times before "success."

A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare
HERMIA So will I grow, so live, so die, my lord, Ere I will yield my virgin patent up Unto his lordship, whose unwishèd yoke My soul consents not to give sovereignty.
Hermia is the resistance.
Brian Rosenblat shared a highlight from
How to Win Friends & Influence People by Dale Carnegie
“I have no right to say or do anything that diminishes a man in his own eyes. What matters is not what I think of him, but what he thinks of himself.

William Shakespeare
“My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.”
William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

Oscar Wilde
“Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination.”
Oscar Wilde

Douglas Adams
“The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

Theodore Roosevelt
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt
