    This has been slow going. For some reason my brain does not want to ingest/comprehend the subject. It has definitely transformed my approach to programming in the general sense. I still have great suspicion in regards to mutability and performance.

    Right now, Accelerated C++

    Online courses are trash.

    I can't read books anymore 😢
    I'm too addicted to my phone that my attention span is that low of a gold fish. 2 pages later there is surely something more interesting on Facebook. I hate it.

    But if i can give you some useful book tipps that i've read despite phone addiction.

    @heyheni tip: delete whatever apps ypu waste your time on. It works.

    You use Facebook a lot? Delete the app. You'll be surprised how much of a difference this makes.

    Ugh, zhuo. I've gotten in internet fights with her trendy bullshit on LinkedIn. She has some very questionable, business-side-centric opinions on engineering that are both wrong and employment hostile.

    @Demolishun Won't lie, I'm fascinated knowing there's a book for that! I definitely don't know a lot :p

    @heyheni Goldfish wow! 😂
    You don't really hate. It is the regret that follows is what you don't like. A guilty pleasure thing going on maybe hahah!

    Making of a manager sounds interesting! Will add to cart :p

    Copywriter's handbook is something everyone should have read in this day, I think.

    Amazon keeps recommending me the last book- "How to win friends..." but I'm not sure if it is actually valuable or just a trendy/gimmicky thing.

    @akshar "How to win friends and influence people" is an old book. It is not a trendy thing, it is wisdom that is still relevant.

    @Root First one reminds me of a song by Boney M. "By the rivers of Babylon" 🎶 Got off track!🙊

    I just checked a preview of Fox I. Socks! Very fun 😁
    The art of the deal looks interesting too. Adding to carrrt

    I've been into reading since 2 months now and seems like I want to buy all the books I see. I've completed two so far and already have 7 more to read

    Figure drawing for artists by Steve Huston when I'm pooping

    The brothers karamazov by Fyodor dostoyevsky when I'm bored and want to kill a few minutes in between things during the day

    And it's hard to count it as a book, but I've been listening to the first three dune books as audiobooks while exercising. But holy shit I can't focus on them 80% of the time. They're written too slowly. How is a modern movie going to attempt to make the franchise successful when everyone's attention spans are shorter than a midget with her legs amputated?

    "Figure drawing for artists by Steve Huston when I'm pooping"

    I hope this is not related to the medium you are using for drawing...
