Favorite business and personal books from 2019.
Legend book series by Marie Lu. If you like Hunger Games, you’ll like this. It’s a really fun three-book series.
Everybody, Always and Love Does by Bob Goff. This guy is LEGIT. I really enjoyed his books, and he even puts his phone number in there to call him! I called him and talked to him about some business struggles I’m having. He was very helpful.
Tiger Woods by Jeff Benedict. Even if you think you know Tiger Woods, there’s so much you don’t know. This is a SUPER interesting book. Tiger’s life was crazy.
On Killing by Dave Grossman. I really enjoy military books. This is a fascinating book about if military people kill as much as you think.
Coach Wooden and Me by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. I’ve been reading a lot of coaching books lately, and this is one of my favorites. Good tips on how to be an effective leader.
Losing the Signal by Jacquie McNish. The untold story behind Blackberry. I didn’t expect much from this book, but WAY more impressive and interesting than I thought it’d be. We don’t realize all the things behind-the-scenes of why a company fails (even if it looks obvious from the outside).
Rocket Men by Robert Kurson. The story of Apollo 8 space launch. Robert is a phenomenal writer, and I recommend all his books.
Beat the Reaper by Josh Bazell. Recommended by my friend Tyson Cole. Sleeper hit that is CRAZY good and fast read. If you like fiction, you’ll devour it.
Endure by Alex Hutchinson. Another recommendation from Tyson. He breaks down the myths and facts of endurance athletes.
Focuses on the science and lesser-known facts.
