    Audible is having a sale on a number of books, this Relentless one as well for $4.95.
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00R4TQNP6/

    I'm just finishing listening, and will definitely be putting it on my frequent-listen list. Very inspiring, no holds-barred. I'm not a sports fan by any measure, but the backstory of the unrelenting drive & perseverance of Michael Jordan and others - the best of the best - is a kick in the pants needed as we are heading into a new year with renewed goals and aspirations. Highly recommend.

    If you don’t mind I’d like to know why you were extra concerned and what action reading this book prompted you to make?

    Great thread.

    I thought Fascinate was brilliant at breaking down motivations. Relentless reminded me of The 10x Rule. Dune is timeless.

    Right now I’m reading High Performance Habits, How To Master The Art of Selling by Tom Hopkins, Unscripted and everything on the forum that concerns Options, SEO, and what newbies should or should not do if they don’t want to be total asses.

    ETA: Just added Work Less, Make More by Schramko.

    The Penguin History of Canada.

    I needed a break from reading entrepreneurial or business books. And, besides, I'm a history graduate living in Canada for the year, so it's good reading for me. Did you know camels are native to North America?

    Here's a few things that put me to work.

    I still had a lot of 'guilt' from not participating in the Bitcoin rush, TBH.

    Needed a thourough analysis of what crypto is, and how does it matter or not to me.

    Basically put, the better gains in crypto, be it whether you are an investor or actually doing active stuff, come in the version 2.0 of crypto. That is the same way with the Internet. The best stuff came later, what with Google, YouTube and whatnot. And with quantum computing advances, it should come sooner than expected.

    So that is done with the crypto guilt that plagued me for a bit.

    Next, the author talks about how commodities generally have been overlooked as a great field, compared to tech.

    We have lots of tech to produce the commodities at low cost in huge bulk, but in the future, the author predicts a great global conflict that would sap resources such as commodities, returning it back to the glory days. Doesn't have to be a full-blown war.

    A lot of my country's industries are still reliant on producing commodities. I will need to begin to learn about them, as it may well be that i might meet some of their players later in the future. My country is a small place after all.

    Yes, I know the book has an anarcho-capitalism theme to it, but at least it is a lot better than pure anarchy and communism lol. And somehow I could begin to understand where Globalwealth was coming from, in many of his emails discussing tax and government in general.

    The rational male, if you're a man and haven't read it, do so now!! Jesus I wish I had that book back when I was 15 or younger..
    It's the "millionaire fastlane" of its genre, "self realization/awakening/relationship advice/people skills, etc. Really hard to put that book in a box..

    They crossed the Bering land bridge into Asia, just as humans went the other way crossing into North America. Once the bridge became submerged the remaining camel in North America were hunted to extinction by humans.

    The Secret of Selling Anything by Harry Browne.

    Recommended by Ken McCarthy. Excellent book on selling, much of the same advice MJ gives - to focus on what the customer wants, rather than what you want to create. I've read it once before, and I'm reading it again.

    So far I would say yes. It has many examples of how people are influenced by the environment around them in subtle ways. It's more about persuasion over time and the subtleties of influence.

    I'm enjoying it. Similar to the other book, it's filled with different examples and studies on how the concepts work and the results of different tests.

    I'm going to have to listen to it more than once for sure to understand it all.

    Listening to on Audible:

    Can't Hurt Me by David Goggins.

    It's all about the mind.
    If you don't know about him, read his wikipedia cover. He shares most of us are only using 40% of our mind. Incredible story.
