My Book List

The goal of my website is to share what I’ve learned and experimented with from many different books through my articles. That way you can find digestible ways to incrementally improve you productivity, happiness, and well-being. But should you have the time, getting the information from the source can be the best and most inspiring way to learn.

I’ve decided to compile together all the books I’ve read (or listened to) so far. I’ll be updating them over the coming weeks with comprehensive, personal reviews and adding to the list as it grows. They’re also categorized to make it easier to search for the type of book you want. And of course, many books have multiple categories.

I’ll have affiliate links if you’d like to buy the books where part of the proceeds come back to me. If you would like to buy these books, only do so if you feel it is a worthy investment and you look forward to reading that particular book so you can get the most out of it. I choose to buy my books because I love to take notes in them and review it all later. And I believe every idea I get is priceless anyways. Nonetheless, find what works for you, whether it be audiobooks, e-books, or borrowing from your local library.
