reading great books changes the way you think. if you want to get out of debt, if you want to lose weight, if you want to be awesome – read great books. while it may seem counter intuitive, don’t read books only about your specific goal. great books have transferable application. on our debt slaying journey, i’ve read a few books that were absolutely vital. periodically, i try to update my list. here are the books that i’ve read since my last post:
The 4 Hour Work Week – Timothy Ferriss
The Weight of Glory – C.S. Lewis
Love is The Killer App – Tim Sanders
Entreleadership – Dave Ramsey (reading it again)
Total Church – Tim Chester and Steve Timmis
54 books since april 2, 2008. prior to that, the KoF – not really a reader. i read the total money makeover (read it after 4.2.8 too (maybe twice)) & some andy stanley stuff. one of the first books that i remember reading as an adult was the Rock’s biography. seriously. not exactly great literature, if you smell what i’m cookin’. but, it proved that i could actually read a book. pick something short to get started. it doesn’t have to be about the most electrifying man in sports entertainment – in fact steer clear of that one. try choosing to cheat by andy stanley. it’s very short with more life changing principles than the great one’s bio.
before the reading barrage – debt dragon grows. after the reading barrage – debt dragon gets the people’s elbow. it’s connected. the dragon would tell you the same thing if that jabroni wasn’t on its way to the smackdown hotel.
