Books

I do read books every now and then. Here’s the past, present and future of my bibliophilic escapades:

Books I’m currently reading

  • Big Data: A Revolution That Will Transform How We Live, Work, and Think by Viktor Mayer-Schönberger, Kenneth Cukier
  • च ची भाषा – गुप्त संदेश आणि माहितीची चित्तथरारक कहाणी (Cha Chi Bhasha – The Story of Codes & Secret Languages) by Atul Kahate – a serial account of events and techniques that shaped the history of cryptography. Its explanation of the Enigma machine and its cryptanalysis is a highlight. This was my way of learning something about world history. 250+ pages of pure entertainment.
