    TR- I just went to check in with your blog for the first time in a few months, and bravo! I only wish I were traveling to Uzbekistan or China soon to test out your assertions. Regarding your reading list, you are currently reading my all-time favorite book. I have never, ever been so satisfied upon closing a book as with that one. Anyway, I wanted to suggest two of my favorite very short, very easy summer reads, in case you haven’t read them yet. First, Travels with Charley by Steinbeck again (his account of traveling across the US in his camper, Rocinante, with his poodle, Charley), and, second, Bright Lights Big City by Jay McInerney. Both of them- so fun and captivating.

    Good luck with all!

  3. I would suggest reading anything by Malcom Gladwell an interesting and engaging writer who is as humorous as he is deft at weaving together a variety of topics to provide some interesting viewpoints. Also I would suggest; The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business by Duhigg, Charles. A very interesting book to read after the Lean startup. Thanks for the summaries and interesting reading ;)!
