I finally got my Kindle two weeks ago.
I didn’t keep track of how many books I read in 2020, but I would guess around 10. I want to read many more this year.
Here’s a list of 7 books to start. I will keep adding to this list when I hear about another one worth reading.
- “Extreme Ownership” by Jocko Willink
I started this a few days ago. So far there’s a lot about war. But I like the idea of being responsible for everything in your life. I think I take ownership of most aspects of my life but I could do it more, to an extreme degree.
- “Never Split the Difference” by Chris Voss
Most often recommended book. It’s about negotiation. I am bad at it and want to get better.
- “Oversubscribed” by Daniel Priestley
I don’t know what this is about, but Ali Abdaal recommends it strongly, so I want to read it soon.
- “Getting Things Done” by David Allen
I think I read this book a few years ago, but I don’t remember much. I want to reread it.
- “The 22 Immutable Laws of Marketing” by Al Ries and Jack Trout
Just recently, when I started learning about SEO, I realized how little I know about marketing. I plan to read a few marketing books to at least learn some basics.
- “The Overstory” by Richard Powers
It was recommended by Hugh Jackman on The Tim Ferriss Show. When they talked about it, I remember thinking that it sounded like a weird book.
Tim Ferriss mentions it a lot. It was a book that motivated him to travel.
If there’s a book that you’d recommend, do let me know: here, or on Twitter,
