Here I’ll be recommending books that I’ve read. It won’t just be fitness stuff though – I read books from all different genres – human behaviour, psychology, to all sorts of randomdness. Enjoy.
I also listen to a lot of audiobooks on Audible, so I’ll include them here too. You can sign up for a free Audible trial here and get a free book (no strings, cancel with no fees if you’re not interested).
This is the greatest book I’ve ever read. It’s a completely true account of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s mission to cross the Antarctic and the drama that ensued on the journey. Lots of life lessons too, mainly about the ability to deal with hardships and keep on going. I finished this quickly because it was hard to put it down!
By far one of the most interesting books I’ve ever read. Ancient history is an extremely interesting topic for me, but Graham Hancock’s book makes it even more interesting. The insight into the genius of the Egyptian Pyramids alone is worth the book’s price.
An excellent book on money management told in the form of parables from Ancient Babylon. Has a practical purpose without being dry!
This book changed my approach to life. I’ve always naturally been a believer in the power of practice, drilling the basics, and being in it for the long haul, and this book reinforced that even more.
Most people rush and think they can achieve everything in 4 weeks, but this excellent book will eloquently explain how true mastery is actually achieved (it could be mastery of your body, relationships, mastery in a sport etc). An excellent book for anybody trying to achieve anything in life.
A ‘self-help’ book written by a very smart clinical psychologist and stand-up guy. Some very practical advice on life. Can be a bit difficult to read in some parts but very much worth it. Check out some of his lectures on youtube, a great speaker.
This book completely changed my attitude about business and efficiency in the modern world. If you own your own business and are looking to take it online, scale it up and start working on your own terms, I highly recommend reading or listening to this. An eye opener.
