Book thread. What are you reading?


Recommended Posts

I generally start my day with making coffee and reading for 20-30 mins. 
 

Just finished two Ryan Holiday books 

 

Ego is the Enemy 

Stillness is Key 

 

any recommendations on books that talk about the mental game in sport or golf?

Be a Player by Lynn Marriott and Pia Nilsson is probably my favorite as far as the mental side of the game goes.

Don't like to think about the mental game.

I dont read as much since I stopped traveling due to Covid. 

 

Last books I read were Nassim Taleb's books. Fooled by randomness, skin in the game and Black Swan.  Also read 5th risk by Michael Lewis. 2020 was a slow reading year

 

Before that used to read a lot of science type stuff, Richard Dawkins and Stephen Hawking had some good reads. 

 

Also was a big fan of Bill Bryson for his storytelling on various subjects, his book on hiking the Appalachian trail was a great read
