I am a self professed self-help junkie. That means I usually have anywhere from 1-5 books going simultaneously. There are good arguments against this practice, because I’m not really locked into any one book, but it’s just how I operate. As such, I’m always on the lookout for new books. Whenever there is a book list on HackerNews, my Amazon wish list gets a little heavier (as it will here if others follow suit). But I will only list the books I’m currently in the middle of or just finished. No need to add reviews, but I will probably add a short blurb about what I just finished.
- Currently reading
- Recently finished
“How to fail at almost everything and still win big” - Scott Adams
- Was just ok. I don’t know what I expected, but it was basically like reading his blog. Was interesting reading about his voice problems. Was a little bit woo-woo when he talked about the power of doing affirmations on a regular basis, but I think he was/is a driven person and his persistence shows in his writing and his performance as a long term cartoonist.
“The Science of Self-Learning” (audibile) - Peter Hollins
- Not nearly as actionable as I had hoped, but learned a few fun things about learning and how to increase my own learning methods, especially during self learning. Trying to implement those things with the RF book I listed above.
- “How to fail at almost everything and still win big” - Scott Adams
Would love to know what others are reading currently! I’m sure my list won’t change too much from month to month, as I have some heavy things on here right now. Feel free to add fiction books as well, I love those recommendations. I have two that I’m working though very slowly right now, but mostly as a break from the heavier content listed above.
