Books

During the Covid-19 pandemic I developed an great interest in reading books. So here's a list of the ones I've read and plan to read since 2021. From there on I try to read at least one to two books every month. Mostly I read about scientific topics like computer science, artificial intelligence or technology in general. The number in brackets is my personal rating from 1 (bad) to 5 (good).

Feel free to share your book recommendations with me!
