Here are some of my favorites books read in 2020, in no particular order.
Sum: Forty Tales from the Afterlives
Derek Sivers has a great summary of that book. I’ve read the book around the same time when I finished watching The Good Place (which I loved!). Both the book and the series touch on topics I catch myself thinking about often.
The Phoenix Project / The Unicorn Project
I enjoyed both books a lot. I like the novel approach (inspired by The Goal, which is another book I like).
Badass: Making Users Awesome
I absolutely loved this book!! Watch this 2-minute long video. I’ve enjoyed this book so much that it’s one of the books I have on my list to re-read this year.
Total Recall / Losing My Virginity
Those are the autobiographies of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Richard Branson, respectively. Two remarkable individuals.
Hell Yeah or No / Your Music and People
If you’ve been following my blog, you’ve noticed I mention Derek Sivers quite often. I’ve been following his writings for several years and will continue to do so; he keeps putting out great stuff in a very simple, distilled manner.
The Obstacle is the Way
I’ve been hearing and reading people talk about stoicism a lot over the years, but never really sat down to look more into it, until last year. I’ve enjoyed The Obstacle is the Way, and even gifted a copy to a friend, with page markers on passages that I believe can help him accomplish the dream he’s chasing.
