Best Books I Read in 2013

By Dom Nozzi

The following books are the best books I read in 2013. They are books that influenced how I see the world, and many are the books I most refer back to in conversations with others.

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.
