Lindy Books


via Ricardo Siri

Yea, Lindy. From the term popularised in Taleb’s Antifragile.
That is how most of the folks I learn from, read.

Shane Parrish uses it as a guide to choose a book.
As do the readers of his blog at Farnam Street.

Vishal Khandelwal writes about it on his awesome blog.
And also uses it as a guide to reading for investors.
