Ultralearning: Master Hard Skills, Outsmart the Competition, and Accelerate Your Career by Scott Young

And Oren has been in a lot of different situations.
The Optimist's Telescope: Thinking Ahead in a Reckless Age by Bina Venkataraman

Whether it comes to our finances, our health, our communities, or our planet, it’s easy to avoid thinking ahead. The consequences of this immediacy are stark: Superbugs spawned by the overuse of antibiotics endanger our health. Companies that fail to invest stagnate and fall behind. Hurricanes and wildfires turn deadly for communities that could have taken more precaution. Today more than ever, all of us need to know how we can make better long-term decisions in our lives, businesses, and society. Bina Venkataraman sees the way forward."
