Welcome to my daily learning journal. Here is today’s list:
1. Ted Talk – Matt Walker: How caffeine and alcohol affect your sleep. “Caffeine wakes you up, and alcohol makes you nod off, right? It’s not that simple. Sleep scientist Matt Walker takes us into the eye-opening ways that these drinks affect the quantity and quality of our sleep.” (ted.com description)
Numerous Ted Talks are filled with powerful insights on sleep management & healthy living.
2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – 1176: cataract surgery in Fuchs’ dystrophy. Great pearls.
3. Andrew Lee MD – Syphilis in Neuro-Op.
Dr. Lee’s neuro-ophthalmology reviews are perfect for lifelong learning.
4. Gautam Baid – The Joys of Compounding: The Passionate Pursuit of Lifelong Learning, Revised and Updated (Heilbrunn Center for Graham & Dodd Investing Series). Chapter 21 on special situations & spinoffs.
As Gautam Baid mentions, Joel Greenblatt’s book, You Can Be a Stock Market Genius: Uncover the Secret Hiding Places of Stock Market Profits, is essential reading on special situations & spinoffs.
I continue to enjoy books on value investing, lifelong learning, mental models, and more. Excellent chapters with amazing quotations.
