After finishing Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman today, i noticed im p much out of stuff to read. So recommend me books to read, preferably books that expand knowledge or philosophical books but anything will do as im open to alot of books.

Yeah, honestly Atomic Habits was life changing for me. If you like books about Health then I would also suggest: Why We Sleep - Matthew Walker The Circadian Code - Satchin Panda

The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi. One of the best post-apoc / bio-punk books ever written. His other books (Ship Breaker, The Drowned Cities) are also great and each one explores different (and very realistic) scenarios of the future eco-catastrophes but without leftist fearmongering.

The Wasp Factory Choke Surely you must be dreaming, Mr. Feynman. A brief history of Homo Sapiens If you are into excellent short stories, everything by Jeffrey Archer, who is also a convicted fraudster. Excellent stuff. 1984 by Orwell and Doors of Perception by Huxley - read them both and compare them. The background story of Huxley and his involvement in the birth of LSD is fascinating. Psycho - Bret Easton Ellis is spot on. His other books about perversity in the higher social layers are spot on. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep - the book Blade Runner is built on. Books by Philip K. Dick in general if you are into Sci-Fi. The Black Swan by Nassim Taleb - I am not a fan of his writing style, but his idea needs to be accredited as original and highly relevant to everyday life. The Trial by Frank Kafka - read it and you can draw a line to the bureaucracy we experience today in our everyday lives dealing with the government. Sun Tzu Art of War - I am not kidding. I started reading it because I wanted to get it over with, but it is a spectacular book with great wisdom. Read it! The Prince - classic. I´ve read them all, and I have a lot more. Let me know. A tip: Try to take notes when reading. Whatever you think of while reading a book.
