Wait But Why is a fantastic resource, and highly recommended!
As diverse as it is entertaining, this blog covers topics from how to pick a life partner and why Gen Y yuppies are unhappy to From Muhammad to ISIS: Iraq’s full story and a four-part series on Elon Musk: The world’s raddest man and how he’s changing the world through his three companies.
I’ve been following these guys for a while (the blog is run by two guys out of the US) and their posts are always insightful and super hard to put down. Some are lengthy but that’s more a reflection of the detail in the content than verbose writing. I’ve always found the posts well structured and easy to follow – Tim does a great job of breaking something down and piecing it slowly back together again.
