There were too many books which came to mind when listening to Ernest Tsang’s Frost City podcast. The Matrix (is this a book?), The Little World of Liz Climo, and a durian cookbook….
But if I had to choose one and keeping with business book theme, I had to go with Tony Hsieh, Delivering Happiness, the red bull loving, Zappos founder. It fits with Ernest's line of the "the undying love of our parents".
