Best Book Read (So Far) in 2010 According to Paul Kedrosky

Paul Kedrosky, in his own words, is an investor, speaker, writer, media guy, and entrepreneur. In his spare time he is a dangerous Twitterer, analyst for CNBC television, and the editor of Infectious Greed, one of the most popular financial blogs available over the Interweb… Dr. Kedrosky has a Ph.D. in the economics of technology (which he mostly uses when bluffing outside of poker), a master’s degree in finance (which he mostly uses when bluffing in poker), and an undergraduate degree in engineering (which a professor once said he would take away, if he had the means).”

He likes poker and is quite a smart-ass to go with being pretty smart.  I don’t always agree with him, but he’s almost always worth reading.

This summer I’m re-reading The Sheltering Sky by Paul Bowles (I have a version in Italian that was a gift from a KPMG Milan partner if anyone wants to borrow it), Division Street by Studs Terkel and maybe picking up one or two of the new novels by The New Yorker’s “20 Under 40” writers.

I’m also trying to write a few short stories of my own.

I strongly support artists, dreamers and cranky contrarians.

Twitter Sez … Best Book Read (So Far) in 2010.

By Paul Kedrosky · Tuesday, June 29, 2010

Just for fun, I asked on the Twitter today what people thought was the best book they had read so far of 2010. Here are some responses – perhaps a few ideas for your summer reading. Sorry for no links, but linking all of these titles to Amazon was more work than I could do. [fm: I’ve added the links. Grammar and punctuation is Twitter-style.]
