Best Books I Read in 2020 and into 2021
By Dom Nozzi
The following books are the best books I read since the beginning of 2020. They are books that influenced how I see the world, and many are the books I most refer back to in conversations with others.
And they certainly inspired me, through the sheer intellectual enjoyment of reading them at the time, to read voraciously in a never-ending search for further epiphanies.
