By Dom Nozzi
The following books are the best books I read in 1990. They are books that influenced how I see the world, and many are the books I most refer back to in conversations with others.
For some of these books, I now realize that I have matured or otherwise moved to a place in conflict with the propositions put forth in the book. However, even these books undoubtedly shaped my thinking in certain, durable ways. And they certainly inspired me, through the sheer intellectual enjoyment of reading them at the time, to read voraciously in a never-ending search for further epiphanies.
