Book(s) you're reading right now

Curious to hear what everyone is reading right now, and if anyone has any recommendations (outside of the different sales book threads already posted).


Personally, I'm reading The Bitcoin Standard and just finished reading Seven Days in Augusta (golf related) about a week ago!

Currently just finishing up Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life by Jordan Peterson.

I just finished a fiction book called Barney's Version by Mordecai Richler. I don't read much fiction but this one was very good.

I started reading it and I stopped because to me most of it was common sense. But let me know if itโ€™s worth reading all of it!

Well depends what you mean by the world of sales because what Tim suggests is to start dropshipping which technically is selling.ย

Severe Mercy by Sheldon Vanauken โ€“ half autobiography, half love story about a guy who loses his wife and developed a close friendship with CS Lewis through the grief. Ridiculously good.ย

The Power of Positive Thinking. It's very spiritual/religious so if that bothers you maybe don't read but it's got some great takeaways and little tricks to live a more positive lifestyle aside from the religious element.

Way of the Wolf by Jordan Belfort (again)... he is not everybody's cup of tea, but I think it is hard to deny his skills when it comes to sales and persuasion.

I agree with this, his skills when it comes to sales are pretty insane. I've read his original Wolf Of Wall Street book so need to add this one to the list.ย
