Books

Book Club

Here I explore and write summaries of books recommended by out of the box thinkers, entrepreneurs, visionaries, and pioneers.

I believe that when we emulate the habits of high achievers we will eventually get similar results. And in my investigation of the successful one habit popped up over and over: They read a lot! So I asked myself: what happens if I start to read the same books as Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Tony Robbins, BJ Fogg, Barack Obama, and Steve Jobs?

In here you find the Books that world-class performers have recommended on my podcasts like the Tim Ferris Show, the Tony Robbins Podcast, or Lewis Howes school of greatness and many more.

From Nicolas Tesla`s favorite Books to Warren Buffets annual letters to the books that influenced Tony Robbins the most.

Walden

The 6$ that I spend on this gem, are easily in the discussion for best investment of my life. And I believe whole heartedly that this book has the potential to enrich if not change your life.

He lives there completely self-reliant, in the shack he build, as simple as possible, and supported by no one else but by himself.
