Reading list

These are books I like for children because they help you learn about a topic from first principles. Through interesting stories. They are the opposite of a text book on that topic.

A few suggestions on how to read them:

  • Don’t read them cover to cover. Just read sections in random order. Go to the sections that look interesting
  • Teach what u read. Talk about it. If you can’t teach some one and get confused, read again
  • If you liked a concept and want to know more, just pause and research online
  • Maintain a notebook in which you write down your takeaways. If you can mind map it, even better
  • Kindle offers a sample version. Always read a sample before buying it

Enjoy !!
