If there is one book you should read to change your life it’s this one. We don’t reach big goals overnight or through one big action. We reach them through incremental daily actions. This book teaches you how.
For all my glaring faults I do have one strength — I’m productive. I typically meet my goals. People are always asking me how. I find the answer quite simple although I understand it is really very difficult. For years I have followed the 1% rule. I do a few things every single day in an attempt to get 1% better. Like…
Yes, the Emily Post Institute published a book about weed.
I’m not going to post on social media whether or not I smoke pot. What I’ll say is that I’ve been around pot my entire life. It’s always been prevalent. But never before has it been as prevalent as it today. It seems to be everywhere all the time as it becomes socially acceptable and legal in more states.
Because you’re going to run into pot sometime soon and it will most likely be legalized in some form or fashion in your area within the next few years, like anything…
I’m really torn on this one. You’ll find some real gems in “Invent & Wander” that every entrepreneur should read. However, I found the book to be incredibly repetitive which was frankly annoying. It’s already pretty short at just 275 pages but I feel it could have been half that.
The repetitiveness is most likely just a result of the format of the book. It encompasses all of Jeff Bezos’ shareholder letters between 1997 and 2019 and concludes with a number of speeches that he has given over the years. …
How does one review a book with so broad a theme as human existence?
This book has been recommended to me no fewer than 100 times. I finally picked it up and was not let down. This is a must read.
The book begins with the dawn of man and works its way through the cognitive, agricultural, scientific and industrial revolutions until it reaches today. Chapters focus on religion, capitalism and globalization until it reaches a conclusion about man’s constant search for happiness and eventual immortality. The author argues that those searches will lead to the end of man with a transcendence past our biological limitations. He’s probably right.
Science fiction will become reality.
I loved this book and recommend to anyone who desires to understand how we got here and where we are going.
Prepare the Body and the Mind
A book review of Own The Day by Aubrey Marcus
I am no doomsday prepper. I don’t have an underground bunker in my backyard… yet. But I would be lying if I said that 2020 did not put some new fear in my mind and that I did not act on that fear.
A global pandemic hit us hard (in case you haven’t heard). Suddenly we saw grocery store shelves empty — canned goods, water and toilet paper were gone. Riots broke out in downtowns across America. Here in Charleston, our beloved King Street…
In Sebastian Junger’s “Tribe,” we are told stories of miners trapped underground, the English during the World War II Nazi occupation and American troops as they served abroad — and then as they returned home. In each case, the lesson is that tribes of people come together during crises to overcome difficult or seemingly impossible scenarios. Junger believes that a tribe is the community in which you live and share resources with. It is a group of people that you would risk your life to defend.
He cites fascinating studies during WWII where the people residing in locations bombed the…
“When you slow the process down, you also calm it down.”
In his bestselling book on negotiation, hostage negotiator Chris Voss writes that one of the first rules of dealing with a crisis situation is to slow it down. In his example, two bank robbers have taken hostages while the FBI is speeding through the process quickly to fix the situation, mostly because the press is watching. But in speeding through the process the FBI hasn’t thoroughly analyzed all aspects of the situation. After slowing down the process, Voss learns that one of the…
It seems like every review I give you is a recommendation. Well now you finally have a review screaming NO, do not read this crap .
I’m so disappointed in this book. It was recommended by a ton of people on my Insta feed while ranking high on the NYT and WSJ bestseller lists. As a body hacker I thought I would learn new tricks to upgrade my brain. That’s not at all what I got.
What I got was a bunch of useless stories, basic BS you can learn from any self improvement book and worst off all and what sent me through the damn roof, nothing but advertisements. That’s right. This book is just a 307 page pamphlet for the author’s online courses.
This book was total bullshit and I’m pissed at myself for finishing it. Don’t read this crap.
“Sincere your words are not pretty.
Pretty words are not sincere.”
The beauty of philosophy is that the meaning of an individual writing can be subjectively interpreted differently by each reader. And each reader may have a different interpretation every time he reads it depending upon his current place in life. Written over 2000 years ago the Tao Te Ching it’s no different. The book is short and broken down into 81 individual lessons. I read each lesson three times on different days and each day I found myself thinking of each lesson differently. If I had to break it…
After reading his book about Power, I decided to read all books by Robert Greene. Next up is his book on Human Nature, then Mastery, then War and then the 51st Law.
Because of my career in politics and marketing I found Seduction more useful and even better than his masterpiece and often recommended book on Power. There is a but a small difference in seducing a person and seducing the masses. The strategies and tactics are the same. It’s not about the head. It’s about the heart.
I recommend this book for all the single ladies. All the single ladies. 🎵 All the single men too. I may have been reminded of how I was able to hook my smoking hot wife. 😀
It’s a great tool for marketing and political professionals to help understand emotional attraction.
