    Reading Antifragile by Nassim Taleb. Phenomenal. One of the best things I've read in a long time.

    Because you roll out of bed last minute. Rush to get up Rush to get dressed. Rush breakfast. Your mind is off to a bad start before the day even began. When you have the morning to yourself you can take your time, plan your day ahead and focus on what matters. That's what I'm feeling from it anyway.

    I didn't see a response to branding books. That's where my mind is right now. I am selling products, but it needs to go beyond just offering things for sale.

    I was about to order Story Brand by Donald Miller, but read reviews that it skimps on some important pieces about implementation and instead gives a hard sell to expensive online course and videos.

    I have read Fascinate by Sally Hogshead and Brand Seduction by Daryl Weber. I prefer Fascinate, as it talks about how a brand stands out by using one of seven advantages ( Innovation, Passion, Power, Prestige, Mystique, Alert, or Trust). Basically, those seven things appeal to consumers, and you tell your story using one of those really well, which gets them to buy. She has other books, but this is the only one I've read.

    Wow, will check out Fascinate!

    About StoryBrand, seriously, the book is worth it. Just get the cheap Kindle version and forget about the upsells, seminars and workshops cos they teach the same things in the book.

    Unshakeable by Tony Robbins.

    If you have money sitting in the bank and want better returns - read this book!

    Low cost index funds ftw.

    I didn't know about until reading the book and doing some research. I'd say it's a no brainer over common sense.

    Reading Totally Incorrect Vol 2 by Doug Casey. An email from SHTF tipped me off

    Upon one look at the contents, I thought it was like UNSCRIPTED.

    I was so wrong. It's like the the Milton Friedman kind of work, with steroids or ayahuasca in it.

    Not only does it cover some politics, connecting root causes to specific humanistic causes, it also discusses Bitcoin and commodities, as well as largely ignored opportunities for investments. Also contrasts crypto and regular money systems using Aristotle's definitions of a good and functional currency.

    Had me EXTRA concerned about my present progress on the Fastlane all over again.

    I'd like to think it of an extensive look into the SCRIPT.

    EDIT: also hits on current explosive issues like Universal Basic income and crap economies in Africa and South America.

    Ah, UBI. There should be a thread on this soon.

    Doesn't seem to be up on Amazon yet, except the first volume. Here's the sales page if you want.
    Casey Research

    P.S the sales copy is F*cking elaborate and lit

    Try "Skin in the Game" when you've finished Antifragile.

    Dune-Frank Herbert.

    Not a sci-fiction reader in general (I have read around 5 books in my life on this genre) but this book is F*cking good so far.
