During the latest episode of Eric Weinstein‘s podcast, The Portal, an audience member asks German filmmaker Werner Herzog to recommend one or two books that this generation needs to read. His response is brilliant: “I would not want to give you two books because you would sit down and read them and think that you’ve done it. You should not read two books, but 2,000 books.”
–From Derek Beres’s “‘Read 2,000 books’: Werner Herzog’s advice on reading,” Aug. 7, 2019.
