While studying in history in college I used to make these outlines of notes. I still use the same general format when I read a book. I try to read a book a week and make notes on said book. When I do that I’ll post it here. I’ll also have links to the books for you to buy on amazon making me millions upon millions of dollars! MUAHAHAH! What’s that? I only get 3% on a 12 dollar book? Weak…
By the way, if you don’t have one, kindle yourself. Best decision I ever made in the realm of learning. $79 bucks (cheap model with ads– what I have) you get every book ever written before like 1920 for free. Incalculable knowledge for $79 bucks. Sure, you could steal them all or go to the library, but kindle or the equivalent are amazing. I even get the kindle app (WOW this was not meant to be such a hard sell, but here we are haha) so I read when I’m waiting for anything. I used to think it was silly to read on your phone because the screen is so small but then I read that Elon Musk reads everything on his iPhone. I guess if he does it it’s probably worth looking into. Anyways, buy a fucking kindle you fools.
I Will Teach You To Be Rich by Ramit Sethi
My favorite book on personal finance (and about behavioral change in general). Not the most complete, but written so well and the system works very well for the normal 20 something just getting out of college. I usually get this for someone like that or a married couple as a wedding gift (along with a fire extinguisher, of course).
The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss
My go-to book for Lifestyle Design and entrepreneurship I love Tim’s writing style and the message of the book: find something that’s not “work” in the normal sense, then automate everything else so that your actual tedious “work” (paying bills, the books, dealing with big customers) only takes up a small fraction of your week.
Mindless Eating by Brian Wansink
The premier book on diet that isn’t a diet. This book is about eating less calories without sacrificing any food groups. It employs a lot of the same things as Ramit and Tim espouse by creating systems rather than relying on will power. Brilliant work.
