Added to a few books that I've read and like. Which either confirmed that these books are the new list of must read, or that just are most popular books the writer could remember.


Nevertheless, these are really good books. Most of them I read, few are on my to-read pile.


A year already. And I still got a few dozens books that need to read. But these are going to jump the queue and go on the front of line.


Why? Human need to understand better about human and the system we live in. We could no longer afford to be ignorant. 


Time is pressing.
