I have a cardinal rule when it comes to reading.

I don't read more than 1-2 books from the same author.

Why?

I generally find that their ideas can become repetitive.

But as with any rule, there are exceptions.

Here is a list of authors whose every book I've read, uncovering fresh insights each time:

1. Daniel Pink: A master at weaving psychological insights with real-world implications, Dan offers a compelling blend of data-driven narratives that balance academic depth with everyday relevance.

2. Walter Isaacson: With unparalleled biographical research, Isaacson creates vivid portraits of icons, embedding their stories seamlessly within their historical contexts.

3. Clayton Christensen: Christensen articulates groundbreaking theories with unmatched clarity, presenting data-driven analyses punctuated by riveting case studies.

4. Michael Lewis: Gifted at demystifying complex subjects, Lewis crafts narratives that spotlight the human element behind grand concepts, delivering both humor and clarity.

5. Malcolm Gladwell: Gladwell's writings draw surprising connections across fields, offering fresh takes on familiar subjects through a mix of storytelling and deep research.

6. Chip Heath and Dan Heath: The Heaths unravel the psychology of choices with simplicity and depth, pairing academic findings with relatable anecdotes for impactful insights.

7. David McCullough: Renowned for his masterful historical narratives, McCullough brings to life both the giants and the epochs of American history with unmatched storytelling prowess and meticulous research.

Who is missing in this list?

P.S: Super excited about Michael Lewis' upcoming book: Going Infinite: The Rise and Fall of a New Tycoon.
