Best Books Of 2014

I used to publish a list of my top books, but then decided to keep that list confidential for my paying clients only.

As a speed reader, I consume over 100 books in a year and thought I could share ten of the best books I’ve read in the past 12 months with you.

Here it is – I am not advocating you read them all, just that I think they are worth considering the next time you want to read a good book.

  1. The Family Business Suicide Prevention Guide. Published in late 2014, written by yours truly. This is a MUST READ!
  2. Gone Girl by Jillian Flynn. You probably know about it because of the movie – I recommend reading the book first – the asynchronous style of writing is captivating, original and refreshing. Business people could learn from this book’s outstanding story telling and innovative approach to writing a novel.
  3. Scarcity – How having so little means so much. This is my “Business Book Of The year” selection.
  4. Curiosity – Another great contribution to our understanding of what makes us human.
  5. Talk Like Ted. Ted.com is YouTube for smart people. Ideas Worth Spreading. This is a book worth reading about speaking.
  6. Gold Rush – By Olympian and World Champion Michael Johnson. I am biased having spent a few hours at his facility. He’s the real deal and the book is worth every penny.
  7. How To Be Interesting – by Jessica Hagy. Who doesn’t want to be interesting?!?!?
  8. Blind Spot: Why We Fail to See the Solution Right in Front of Us – Gordon Rugg. Self-explanatory wisdom we all need to hear.
  9. The Demographic Cliff – Harry S Dent. If you haven’t read this yet, I hope it’s not too¬† late!
  10. Wait – The Art And Science Of Delay – Frank Partnoy – No it’s not a justification for procrastination. You need to read it to get the nuances that are priceless and timeless.

There you have it – 10% of the book I’ve read this year. If you’d like to learn to Speed Read, get my program by clicking on the hyperlink.

Imagine read TEN TIMES MORE THAN THE LIST ABOVE – EVERY YEAR?!?!?
