I often get requests for what books I’ve read – What gave me the most insight or helped the most.
For me, it’s all about the season of life that I’m in. A book that may offer limited value now could be amazing in a few months. So I buy ones that look interesting. I may read them immediately, start them and find they don’t fit at the moment, or shelve them until I find the right time.
As I look back on my last five to six years of reading, I can see the seasons: Business strategy, marketing. motivation, purpose, parenting, finding myself, overcoming bullshit (my word for trauma), and moving on.
So, rather than give you a top ten list, here is my 2022 reading list so far:
I listened to these books by John Kim in a week (they are that good):
I’ve read or listened to each of these. It’s up to you how you best digest the information but I do have recommendations for a few:
- Purchase the hardcopies of Clarity & Connection and Inward by Yung Pueblo. They are a collection of poetry and short prose that are best seen on a physical page. I leave these books on my coffee table and pick one up whenever I have a moment.
- Listen to any of the John Kim books. He narrates himself and communicates the emotion of what he’s describing.
- The physical copy of Eat Smarter is good because it’s easy to dog-ear pages or highlight important points. But he also does a good job narrating the book.
