Hatching Twitter

If you're interested in Twitter, or just tech start-ups in general, this is a great, and pretty easy, read. It proves that if you have an idea that really meets some broad demand, you can have terrible management, no business plan, and no revenue, and still do quite well. The subtitle says it all. read more

Collective Suicide

Even if it carries the same endlessly negative themes of most modern art, the work Collective Suicide (1936) by David Alfaro Siqueiros was visually interesting. read more

Bleak House

You should read Dickens. Don't be put off by the fact that he was writing a long time ago, or that you were forced to read him in high school; this is easy, accessible reading, and every bit as entertaining today as when it was written. We recommend starting with Bleak House, the most autobiographical of Dickens' novels. But there are many great novels by Dickens, such as The Pickwick Papers, Little Dorrit, A Tale of Two Cities. Dickens was a very prolific writer, and once you have discovered how easy he is to read, you will have discovered the source of a lifetime of entertainment. Bleak House is the story of a lawsuit over an inheritance, and all the people involved in the inheritance; the good, the bad, and the ugly. Among other things, it is a savage indictment of the English legal system of the time - an indictment that is relevant to the American legal system today. But it's also a romance, a family drama, and more, filled with Dickens' usual assortment of fascinating characters. read more

North and South

More than anything else, this is an intelligent and moving romantic story. But it's also a book about business, and about the early clashes between industrialists and the laborers who worked for them. A brilliantly crafted work, just as easy to read today as in 1855. Gaskell pits the agricultural south of England against the industrializing north, and does a very fair job of contrasting the virtues and vices of each; she also has an excellent understanding of business, and gives a fair rendering of the issues for the working class, particularly through the character Higgins, and the "masters", in the form of her love interest, Mr. Thorton. North and South is a mix of Austen, without the gentleness or humor, but Mr. Thorton is very much a Mr. Darcy character, hard and resolute in his class, but becoming gentler as the story develops. And as in Pride and Prejudice, the heroine, in this case Margaret, provides a rude and summary refusal, which humiliates the hero. Both this book and Pride and Prejudice have a pretty woman as the protagonist, but Margaret is much haughtier, more serious, and more religious, than Elizabeth Bennett. There is an element of Rand too with Mr. Thornton, much like Rearden in The Fountainhead. read more
