Незримая жизнь Адди Ларю
V. E. Schwab - 2020-10-06
Рейтинг Goodreads
Франция, 1714 год. Чтобы избежать брака без любви, юная Аделин заключает сделку с тёмным богом. Тот дарует ей свободу и бессмертие, но подарок его с подвохом: отныне девушка проклята быть всеми забытой. Собственные родители не узнают её. Любой, с кем она познакомится, не вспомнит о ней, стоит Адди пропасть из вида на пару минут. Триста лет спустя, в наши дни, Адди всё ещё жива. Она видела, как сменяются эпохи. Её образ вдохновлял музыкантов и художников, пускай позже те и не могли ответить, что за таинственная незнакомка послужила им музой. Аделин смирилась: таков единственный способ оставить в мире хоть какую-то память о ней. Но однажды в книжном магазине она встречает юношу, который произносит три заветных слова: «Я тебя помню»...

I really enjoyed the book Thinking in Systems. So many insights that can be applied across so many fields. Couldn’t help but relate some of it to software eng, such as reactivity, even though that’s not was she was referring to. Interconnection -> signal, etc      источник

Краткая история времени
From the Big Bang to Black Holes
Stephen Hawking - 1998-09-01 (впервые опубликовано в 1988)
Рейтинг Goodreads
В своей книге "Краткая история времени" знаменитый английский физик Стивен Хокинг пытается ответить на вопросы, интересующие нас всех: откуда взялась Вселенная, как и почему она возникла, каков будет ее конец (если вообще будет) – и делает это настолько увлекательно и доступно, что книга, написанная в 1988 году, является бестселлером по сей день.
Sarah Drasner
@dan_abramov IMO “A Brief History of Time” does a great job of this framing- past, present, and acknowledging that whatever he says in the book is only the moment of understanding he is currently in.      источник
