Two non-techie books that popped up in March and can be recommended:

  • "Solo: Der Alleing√§nger Ueli Steck", by Gabriella Baumann-von Arx
    This is a series of interviews with an amazing extreme alpinist, going through the impressive list of difficult faces that been climbed, sometimes solo and/or free climbing. Dive into Ueli Steck's world! The philosophical discussions are interesting too. Great stuff if you like to live intensively... The Book is in German. Ueli Steck gave a presentation in Bern in March, that was well worth the visit too.
  • "Tuesdays with Morrie", Mitch Alboum
    A gentle, relaxing read that encourages introspection.
