The Best 6 Books I Read in the Past 6 Months

1. Mindset: The New Psychology of Success

Hands down, best book on this list. Best book I’ve read in the…man, probably at least 2 years.

2. Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance

“Grit” is a weird little weird that seems to defy description. “Hard work?” “Effort?” “Passion?”

3. Slipstream Time Hacking

I know, this sounds like something Dr. Spock reads on his spare time. It’s not about physics or aerospace dynamics — it’s about how to become at least 10x more productive.

4. Peak: Secrets From the New Science of Expertise

You’ve undoubtedly heard of Malcolm Gladwell’s “10,000 hour” rule — it takes about 10,000 hours to become an “expert” at something.

5. Relentless: From Good to Great to Unstoppable

Tim Grover was the key mental training coach for such people like Kobe Bryant, Dwayne Wade, and the GOAT himself, Michael Jordan. Read his coaching techniques to becoming unstoppable firsthand.

6. The Millionaire Next Door

One of the best finance books I’ve ever read. Being a “millionaire” might not be as cool today, but it still elicits images of sports cars, gold rolexes, and tailored designer suits.
