Book list

March Book Recommendation(s) & Words of Wisdom

For this month, I’ve got 3 books for you. All three books are in different genres, I guess you could say. That way, there’s a better chance you’ll see one that is interesting to you.

2022 Book List

2022 book list. Some good. Some Great. Always learning.

That’s a wrap 2022

I’m actually writing this in a hotel room.  My wife and I are on our annual birthday/anniversary trip.   We got married 2 days after her birthday because we were determined to get married as soon as possible, and the earliest reasonable date was THE day after my last college final for that semester.  

November Book Recommendation and Newsletter

I have a real love-hate relationship with books that are adapted into movies or a television series. I love them because it is interesting to see how the pictures made in my imagination compare to what directors are able to produce on film.

October Book Recommendation and Words of Wisdom

I am a former tennis player of sorts – and HUGE tennis fan.  A couple weeks ago, my sports idol – Roger Federer – announced his retirement. It was a major moment in the tennis world, and in my own world. 

August Book Recommendation and Words of Wisdom

Believe it or not, coming up with just one book to recommend is the most difficult part of the newsletter for me to come up with. I have a reading problem. I’m always reading a new book or listening to an audiobook, so to come up with one recommendation feels like a lot of pressure!

July Book recommendation

Oh… my… goodness… I listened to this with my wife on a road trip to Oregon and found myself laughing out loud, quite hysterically, at several points during this book. I thought it was so fun and playful and a reminder to me to live life to the fullest. Highly recommend this one. 

April Book Recommendation and Words of Wisdom

I enjoy reading. A little too much sometimes. In fact, I publish my book list every year so I can keep track of what I’ve read. I love reading a book that can challenge my way of thinking and get me to see the world in a different way. This may come in the form…

March Book Recommendation & Words of Wisdom

A couple years back, I read a fascinating book called Endurance: Shackleton’s Incredible Voyage (thank you for the recommendation Bogdan). It tells the story of Ernest Shackleton and his crew’s attempt to explore Antarctica. During this expedition, their ship – The Endurance – got stuck in the ice and ultimately sank, never to be seen…

2021 Book List

2021 book list. Some good. Some… meh. Always learning.

2020 Book List

I had a goal of finishing 2 books a week, 104 for the year. We finished 116. Here’s the list.

How to read 2 (or more) books a week

I posted recently about my goal to finish 2 books per week throughout 2020. We haven’t completed the year yet, but I’m just ahead of schedule. A kind reader commented asking how I go about finishing 2 books per week and I thought I’d share my strategy.

(Not good) Evolution since 1776

I just finished reading Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow. This is the catalyst that inspired Lin Manuel Miranda to create the Broadway hit, Hamilton. This book is absolutely fascinating.

The Jesus I Never Knew

This is by far the most frequently recommended book I’ve ever read, meaning, I have probably bought a couple dozen copies of this book and given them to friends and family.

Permanent Record

If you’ve ever wondered if your computer webcam is spying on you… according to Edward Snowden, the answer is yes. So is your phone camera and microphone. So is your app usage, your photos, and your web activity.

Fear: Trump in the White House

I haven’t experienced a more polarizing individual in my life than President Donald Trump. Real estate mogul. WWE wrestler. Reality TV sensation. Womaniziner. President. After finishing the book, I had a tough time reconciling what I was being fed.

The Fountainhead

The Fountainhead held the top spot in my “Favorite Books” list for a long time and I recently decided to read (listen) to it again. The Fountainhead highlights the difference between producers and second-handers. Instead of review, I thought I’d post some of the most meaningful quotes from the book and allow you to get…

Atlas Shrugged

In 1991, the Library of Congress conducted a survey on reading habits and respondents chose the Bible as the book that made the most difference in their lives. The second most influential book? Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand.
