I have committed to reading 50 books in 2016 to increase my knowledge of varied fields to up my innovation skills and my ability to make connections between seemingly unconnected ideas. And also because I love books and learning. I’m an awesome nerd like that.
For more on the commitment, check out the original post here.
For books one through ten, check out this post. (Putting all the books in one post was getting out of hand.)
This post will contain books 11-20 along with links to the reviews. Please follow along and let me know your thoughts, whether or not you have read the books.
Book 11 – The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck – by Sarah Knight
“The power of honesty cannot be overrated. I can’t tell you how many more f*cks you end up giving when you try to beat around the bush. God, even that expression sounds exhausting.”
Book 12 – Flourish: A Visionary New Understanding of Happiness and Well-Being by Martin Seligman
“The lesson from positive psychology is that positive mental health is not just the absence of mental illness… Positive mental health is a presence: the presence of meaning… good relationships… engagement… positive emotion… accomplishment.”
Book 13 – Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World by Adam Grant
