Books Read in the Second Half of 2021

As a reference, my grading scale is:

Two Stars: Not recommended, except for those very interested in the subject.

Three Stars: Recommended, may cover too niche a topic to get a stronger recommendation for a broad audience, is only high-level coverage of its theme, or just moderately interesting fiction.

Four Stars: Recommended, well-written, and covers material I think most people would find useful or interesting.

Five Stars: Strongly recommended to everyone.

Additionally, I pick one book every six months as the “best book I’ve read” during that time period.

Themes from these six months:

  • History of Movies and The Sopranos
  • Science Fiction
  • Elon Musk
  • Food
  • Authors with Multiple Books Featured:
    • Michael Pollan
    • Shea Serrano
