    I need some book recommendations! I have heaps of free time for the next few weeks as I'm still on holiday and my birthday is coming up with 4 days, so I wanted to buy myself a few books.

    I've been looking up some on amazon, but there's so many to choose from!

    If anyone has any good recommendations, let me know please :)

    The Four-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss. Then listen to all the Tim Ferriss Show podcast episodes that interest you. I've learned so fucking much from him and his books and blog posts and podcasts.

    I listened to Fredrik Eklunds book "The Sell" recently, great one. Might not touch online stuff, but if you are doing business face-to-face with people then that is a great book. I just like his personality and it is inspiring that he went to New York without any prior experience and no real plan and is now the top real estate broker in NYC.

    It was a pleasure hearing him talk into my ears at night before I went to bed. Inspiring.

    Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill is a staple that I feel everyone should read.

    Thanks all! I prefer books, but I've never had an audiobook so I might try it out.

    Keep them coming!

    It's Your Move by Josh Altman
    I enjoyed it but it's more of a confidence boost book.
    But it's nice to read something from a guy who does $200+ million in sales per year
