Great Czechs 1918 (Josef Landergott) - I got the book as a subscriber to Echo and I quite enjoyed it.
Mengele’s Girl (Viola Stern Fischerová, Veronika Homolová Tóthová) - it’s not great literature, but it’s a hugely impressive account of a Holocaust survivor.
Nemesis (Jo Nesbo) - the fourth book in the Harry Hole series. Another good piece. This year was really marked by Jo Nesbo (how do you decline that??)
50 Strange Characters (Ondřej Štindl) - again from Echo, a disparate description of 50 completely different personalities. I enjoyed it.
PHP Security Principles (Eric Mann) - a good overview of possible security holes in PHP applications. The author followed the OWASP list, which bothered me a bit. He didn’t have to keep referring to it all the time :)
Upheaval (Jared Diamond) - an impressive book about how individual nations deal with crises. I have several problems with it, especially the constant comparison of national crises with personal ones. It’s boring. And also, it seems to me that the author generalizes his personal experiences to entire nations.
The Circadian Code (Satchin Panda) - I really enjoyed this book. Following the circadian code (sleep, food) is presented there as a kind of miraculous cure for everything, but it’s good :)
The Queen of Fear (collective) - for anyone who has ever experienced panic attacks, you know :)
