I got Evicted, by Desmond, based on a basketball player's critique on Milwaukee.

I recently read Disrupted by Dan Lyons and thought it was really good. I think a lot of people on this board would enjoy it.

Most recent book that really impacted me is The Order of Time by Carlo Rovelli.

Thanks for posting this.  I downloaded the audible version the day you posted this and just finished it this morning.  Excellent book.

James P Carse, "Finite and Infinite Games";
Tom Wright, Bradley Hope, "Billion Dollar Whale";
Ichiro Kishimi, Fumitake Koga, "The Courage to be Disliked" (basically a primer on Adler);
Ben MacIntyre , "The Spy and The Traitor";
Laurence Gonzales, "Deep Survival: Who Lives, Who Dies, and Why".

I enjoyed these books immensely in the last 6 months (among the books I read). While none really added anything to my investment process, per se, I feel they all added another ring to my tree of knowledge, and I highly recommend reading any of them to think differently or learn more about things that have happened in moderately recent history.
"If we are not able to ask skeptical questions, to interrogate those who tell us that something is true, to be skeptical of those in authority, then we are up for grabs for the next charlatan - political or religious - who comes ambling along."
