This book is quite a good story read. Mark goes over a couple of principles around business and how to succeed. it was good, but it wasn't fantastic. you might learn something from this, and as mark covers, that's what makes the book worth it.

this is a great book for an introduction into personal development. David covers a lot of topics, think big in everything you do, what you believe is what you will become, how to overcome fear, how to pursue your dreams, and much more. Definitely recommend for anyone interested in learning how to succeed.

I quite enjoyed this book. there were lots of interesting lessons throughout. and the layout of his experience in a concentration camp and then into the theory of Logotherapy worked quite well. I feel as though this needs a second read to fully absorb the concepts and expectations.

I enjoyed this book. it gave a really good overview for how to set yourself up for financial freedom. Definitely made me think about my own circumstances and motivated me to work on my side hustle. Would recommend to anyone just learning about financial freedom, and to those who are very well versed.

Walter Isaacson is such an amazing biographer. I learn so much about the title subject, and the history is very well thought out and easy to follow. great book!

Deep work was an interesting book. I found it very useful. I've come to realise in my own job that deep work is definitely important to complete valuable work. Overall it was good, but I felt like it could have been shorter. This book is great for those who are currently studying or their career depends on thought and outcomes. It's a bit more challenging if your job depends on emails, but he does go over explanations to get around this.

This was a really interesting book. Ross goes over some of the tried and tested basics of fitness. Found this really useful for my own training. There is a lot in this book, strength, speed, endurance, and much more. I would recommend this to anyone who currently trains for anything, as well as to those who don't currently exercise, to ensure that they adhere to the basics.

I found this book really interesting. Although it doesn't surprise me, it really made the point that wealthy people are just smarter with their money than people who aren't wealthy. This is reinforced by stories of people who have similar income, but very different net worth. What did surprise me that the more cash handouts children get from their parents, the less wealth they will create later in life. Also, that 95% of wealthy people invest, they budget, and they are naturally frugal. Great book to get into the mindset of the wealthy.

The alter ego effect is an interesting concept. the author simply lays it out and makes it easy to follow if you wanted to create one. I didn't fine this book particularly useful as the concept doesn't really resonate with me. A good read.
