There is a lot of nice coffee table books, but this one is a bit more than a coffee table. I came across it at Barnes and Noble this Saturday and I couldn’t stop reading it. This is a unique collection of photographs paired with historical events, some of them widely known, some other not. “The color of Time” is a book you can read during a break, instead of browsing social media (as you are doing right this moment). In this endless digital ocean we live, I crave for islands of distilled knowledge that I can physically access in my house. If you think you have overspent on books for yourself (like me), it is definitely a great gift you can give for the holidays. I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time picking gifts. This one is quite generic and it will be enjoyed by almost everybody, scholar or not! If on the other hand, you feel like you like and haven’t spent enough on books this year, don’t order it online. Walk into a bookstore, browse it, smell it and then buy it 🙂 So you might wonder why I am posting about history books since I usually post about AI. Well even AI has to learn from past data!
