The Books That Kept Me From Losing My Mind (2020 Edition)
Welcome to my first look back at 2020. I'm gonna circumvent the obvious for now and just stake this sucker right in the heart. These are the 15 books I read this year.
Of those, the best were:
The Squared Circle: Life, Death, and Professional Wrestling by David Shoemaker
World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by Max Brooks
Difficult Men: Behind the Scenes of a Creative Revolution: From The Sopranos and The Wire to Mad Men and Breaking Bad by Brett Martin
...with my absolute favorite book of the year being...
Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson
It's a rip-roaring adventure about treasure hunting, code breaking, and just about everything in-between. If you need a nerdy treat that invites you to get lost, look no further.
