For The Win
If you’re new to the world of gamification this is a great place to start. The authors first explore gamification’s future, if it’s right for your product/organization, how to think like a game designer, and why games work. The second half of the
This was my second time reading Hooked, and although it's been almost 8 years since this book has been published, the core concepts have stood the test of time.
I first stumbled upon Alex Hormozi through his YouTube channel where he makes fantastic content. He’s the real deal and the value I got from reading the book was 100x the price I paid for it. The lessons I learned I quickly applied to my startup and I saw immediate results.
Solid read, I already knew most of what the authors went over in the book but picked up a couple of tips and tricks that are game-changing. Make Time is more of a resource you look back to whenever you want to gain an edge in your sleep, energy, focus, etc.

“Making a company is a great way to improve the world while improving yourself.”
The Minimalist Entrepreneur
One of my favorite books from 2021. The Minimalist Entrepreneur isn't a book about building a corporation but instead a book that provides actionable information on how to turn your passions into a living.Lavingia explains..
Our neurons start to age while we are still in our twenties. This process is slowed, however, by intellectual activity, curiosity, and a desire to learn...
Joy on Demand
Loved this book, as someone who has been on and off on with meditation for years this book gave me the motivation to make it a part of my lifestyle. Many people after reading this book will have a complete perception shift as to what meditation really...
Fooled by Randomness
I think this one example from the book sums it up nicely. You have a fact: automobiles happen closer to home. A naive reader of the result would tell you that you are more likely to have an accident if you drive in your neighborhood than...
The Obstacle is The Way
A super short but incredible read. As someone is going through a very rough patch right now in his life this book really hit home for me. Even if you know all the things in this book, just reading it and trying to ingrain the wisdom of how some of the most successful
The Design of Everyday Things
Very interesting book, the main lesson I got from it was that design is very similar to engineering where there is constant iteration based on user feedback. This is a must-read for all designers but also for marketers, engineers, or any one part of the process of selling or building a product.
The Happiness Advantage
Really enjoyed reading this book. Even though this book was written almost a decade ago I believe all the principles apply perfectly to what we as a species are going through today. So many eye opening case studies and statistics.
Stories That Stick
A remarkable book that truly sold me on the power of storytelling. Storytelling is the key to sticking out and being remembered in the attention economy where every company and their mom is trying to tell you something. I learned not only the format and techniques for effective storytelling
If you're wondering how AI will potentially affect your life, business, and every single industry in America and what you can do to prepare I recommend you read this book. The authors write the book with the preconception that the reader has no real expertise
If you're trying to master any skill in life then this is the book for you. It's not how long your practice it's how you practice is one of the core ideas of the book.
Definitely, worth the read, there were so many mind-blowing facts throughout the book, for example, did you know people who take their own life are eight times more likely than average to be in debt? After finishing the book I was full of hope and energy because even during times like these,
To Sell is Human
A great short read into why everyone is in the business of sales and the methods and tricks to stand out from the crowd. If you look at companies like Facebook, Evernote, Dollar Shave Club, etc they do not have a dedicated sales team.
I really enjoy Robert Greene's writing style. It's similar to your grandpa telling stories of the past while weaving in lessons on how to become the best version of yourself.
A masterpiece. One of the greatest books I have ever read. There was so much hype around this book and now I understand why. Yuval Harari is truly a genius and one of the greatest minds teaching in the 21st century.
Antifragile things get better with stress, fragile things such as a vase do the opposite and the sum of fragile parts make up an antifragile system.
