- Easternization: Asia’s Rise and America’s Decline From Obama to Trump and Beyond by Gideon Rachman – Remove the Western lens for a global view of what’s happening beyond the shores of the U.S. (Reality Check: The U.S. represents only 5% of the world’s population.)

- The Bitcoin Standard: The Decentralized Alternative to Central Banking by Saifedean Ammous – An academic exposé on the history of money. He builds the case that gold is money but that bitcoin also serves a meaningful purpose. Great for bitcoin critics.
- Understanding Options by Michael Sincere – A gracious, extremely simple explanation of options and how to use them. The abc’s of options strategies. An excellent ready reference for new and seasoned options investors alike.
- Has the West Lost It?: A Provocation by Kishore Mahbubani – A very short read, this remarkable book offers insight into America’s view of itself and America’s blind spot when it comes to Asia, as well as an alternative to military action. “A gift to the west.”
