After graduating College in 2016, I've accumulated a lot of knowledge from 52 books (as of this video), and now I want to give back.

I decided to start with First Principles, because it lays the groundwork for all other concepts that I eventually want to present. As I said in the video, I first discovered this idea while watching Elon Musk in an Interview. After reading about Elon Musk's story in "Elon Musk" by Ashlee Vance, I found that the concept of First Principles is synonymous with who Elon is and that a video I make about First Principles must include him in it.

Here are the links:

Pretty much all other information I learned from books. Comment if you want to know from which book I got a specific piece of information.
