There are books

There are books and there are books. There are Wren and Martins for grammar and there is "Eats, Shoots and Leaves".

There a countless dry and melancholic books for Finance and there is Principles of Corporate Finance by Brearley and Myers.

Ditto for marketing - where Kotler is still one of the best books to read. And then you have Robbins on Organizational Behaviour.

There are a million books on programming and then there is the Dummies series or an even better Head First series.

These thoughts came to my mind as I skim through Thinking, Fast and Slow - which is perhaps one of the best books I have ever read on psychology. There are many other books, but very few like this one by Daniel Kahneman that teach it so nicely and lucidly.

What book would you rather read? Or write, for that matter?
