Hidden gem alert!

Here's a list of the best introductory books on basically every topic.

Topics include aeronautics, hunting, lexicography, ancient Egypt, animation, architecture, biology, linguistics, oceanography, microfabrication, and typography.


Here's a collection of my favorite links of all-time.

It's the best of what I've found from investing, leadership, history, writing, art, meditation, religion, productivity, technology, marketing, architecture, and culture.

All on a single page.


Great introduction to Marshall McLuhan.

This is my favorite quote from the series: “McLuhan was the Einstein of media.”

It comes from a small YouTube channel with bad video quality — but it’s intellectual gold.

A true hidden gem.


This website has short summaries of the world's best fairy tales.

These stories are timeless, which is why they're passed down from generation to generation. In them, we see a window into the human condition.
