I am almost done with Mobs, Messiahs, and Markets and would highly recommend it to everyone. It covers topics from history, politics, and the financial markets and gives you reasons why you should be skeptical of people in power and especially people who say their ideas will help better the world.
I should finish up the book today and then tomorrow it is off to researching companies again. While I love learning new things and seeing ideas that I haven’t thought about before, I have become kind of a 10-K junkie and even though I have found the book very interesting and entertaining, my mind has been continually wandering thinking about companies I want to research and how to expand my knowledge about companies. I think I am sick :).
