OP, could you post the names of the books please? I like the genre but it's tough to find well researched ones. Some of my experiences: McKinsey Mind was just bad. Lords of Strategy was meh. House of Morgan was great but heavy af.

As a Han person from Xinjiang, it hurts to see how people always associate China with CCP and just negative things in general. Ugyhurs are not treated fairly but there is no genocide either. The one child policy was only applicable to Han, all other minority groups have always been able to have as many children as they want. How could you call that genocide? There’re so many factors that play into the problems at China and it’s just not black and white.

Zoom (ZM) is not in the S&P 500 and therefore you have missed out on these crazy gains if you all in SPY/VOO. On the other hand, it is included in VTI, along with hundreds of other smaller high growth companies that we have seen breaking out recently. Just something to keep in mind when deciding on where you are putting your money. As a disclaimer I am in both VTI and VOO.
