2016 was a year a deep reflection and (hopefully) growth for me. One of the reasons for this was the change I made from reading fiction to reading what you might call self-improvement and business literature. However, some of the last fiction I read was Michael Crichton, who is one of the most informed science fiction writers ever, as far as I can tell. After realizing that all my reading material was dove tailing wonderfully from one subject to another, I decided I should list as many as I can remember of the books I read this year. I’m missing a few, to be sure, but these are the ones that had the deepest impact on me. I highly recommend all of them.
