Three books that will change your life for the better
I love to read. My mind is constantly racing between work, family and activities. I found that I am most peaceful when I am either hanging out with my wife abby, playing golf or reading. Unfortunately, I have to work like everyone else and it is a true that I call my bus to work the "hell chariot." But rather than only looking at riding the bus this as a negative now it is my "hell + book time chariot" :). I read each of these books this year and hope that each will provide you some peace and insights.
(1) Anti Cancer - https://www.amazon.com/Anticancer-New-Life-David-Servan-Schreiber/dp/0670021644. Read this book - it will change the way you cook your food, think about cancer, and also gives great tips on stuff like using tumeric, fish oil, and eating healthier overtime.
(2) Indistractable - https://www.amazon.com/Indistractable-Control-Your-Attention-Choose/dp/194883653X. Best book I've read all year. If you are looking to maximize your time and relationship with others, read this book first.
(3) Reboot - https://www.amazon.com/Reboot-Leadership-Art-Growing-Up/dp/198266083X . Just like working in startups, dealing with cancer is really fucking hard. Jerry doesn't even talk about cancer, but delivers a message about giving yourself and other endless do-overs.
If you like any of these books, the best gift you can give is to share their message with others.
