I love reading and getting my hands on information and I try to educate myself everyday. Below you will find my top five recommendations with respect to books (all non-fiction, since it’s basically all I read):
1. ChiRunning: A Revolutionary Approach to Effortless, Injury-Free Running by Danny Dreyer
-Was there a doubt? I obviously love this book and have read it a few times. It’s the bible of running for me and I always go back to it and get new nuggets of wisdom every time.
2. The 4-hour workweek by Timothy Ferriss
-This is my new business bible. I really love his philosophy on life and I’ve applied a lot of tips from his book to my life. It’s almost become my blueprint for success on the business/balance side.
3. Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell
-Very good book at opening your mind in order to look at things and phenomenons from a different perspective. I could say the same thing about Freakanomics by Steven Levitt & Stephen Dubner.
4. Born to Run by Christopher McDougall
-Such a motivating book for people to get out there and run. I mention it at most workshops since it’s a great look at the history of running and running shoes and how life could be better without the latter. A must read for runners, newbies or vets.
5. Think and grow rich by Napoleon Hill
-A classic! This book has really driven home the fact that you become the person you envision yourself to be. This book really helps with the mind-body connection and I would recommend it to anyone going through a rut. It’s way more than a business book!
My next “must-read” is The Thank You Economy by Gary Vaynerchuk. As always, I will keep you posted!
What’s on your list? Please share, I’m always looking for some good stuff…
