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.
