Forbes Interviews Shane Parrish

My friend Shane from the Farnam Street blog was recently interviewed on Forbes.

An especially important excerpt for readers, of which it is hard for me to argue with Shane's 5 recommendations, and where my list of books that changed my life is also pretty similar to Shane's (I'd probably add the autobiographies of Ben Franklin and Charles Darwin to my short list): 
Beshore: Where is a good place to start exploring “worldly wisdom”?

Parrish: If I could get every high school senior to read five works, they would be “Man’s Search for Meaning,” “Berkshire Hathaway Letters to Shareholders 1965-2012,” “Influence,” “Poor Charlie’s Almanack,” and “Meditations.” I also recently published a list of the books that changed my life.
