If you look for a good #scifi that blows your mind by involving you in an emotional path from various lives to death, Recursion from @blakecrouch1 is your book. But don't mind if the science behind the idea is not rock-solid. I can't say more without spoiling it. Read it!     source

Every book that helps understand better how old paradigms are replaced by new ones is a huge addition to our research on #digitalhealth. That's why I liked The Half-Life of Facts. It describes how facts and knowledge change over time. A must-read in the age of fake news!     source

Game Changer is simply the best book I've read this year. It's not only about one of the most exciting stories ever (how #AlphaGo and AlphaGo Zero were developed to beat the best players in chess and go), but it's also a detective story for #chess players -a cognitive orgasm!     source
