The Best Book(s) Thread

Out of all the books you have read, which ones do you feel had the most impact or really resonated with you?

When I was a child, I lived on my bicycle or in the library. I loved to just dive head first into a book and just read for the sake of reading. I haven't read as much as I would have liked to in recent years, but have been trying to devote more time to just read lately. I think it is important in this fast paced world to slow down sometimes and gain knowledge or perspective the old fashioned way.

A few that I couldn't put down...

Greatest Salesman in the World

The Great Gatsby

Touching the Void

iWoz by Steve Wozniak
The Driver by Alex Roy
The Accidental Billionaires by Ben Mezrich
The Adventure Capitalist by Conor Woodman

"iWoz" is a look into Steve's life and his accomplishments. I really enjoyed it.

In "The Driver", Alex tells some untold stories of his rally experiences. Good for Gumball fans.

"The Accidental Billionaires" was a interesting story of how Facebook became. There is a movie coming out soon and the trailer is similar to the book. Not necessarily the best writer, but I read it because I was curious about the "scandalous" story.

"The Adventure Capitalist" is highly recommended. The author traveled the world in search of old trading cultures. He wanted to see if one can still trade the old fashion way and still make a buck.

I read half of American Psycho just now...

Out of these 5 books, iWoz and The Adventure Capitalist really inspired me to work harder in my projects.
