3 Books to Read in November
Breakthrough, by Thea Cooper
In honor of World Diabetes Day coming up on November 14th, I want to make a plug for this book on the discovery of insulin and one nurse’s involvement.
It’s an incredible insight into the reality facing the two doctors who discovered insulin, Frederick Banting and Charles Best.
Extreme Ownership, by Jocko Willink & Leif Babin
I found this book thanks to Demir & Carey Bentley of Lifehack Bootcamp, who preach the extreme ownership philosophy as part of their premium coaching experience.
The book gives real-life war zone examples of how the extreme ownership principles turned the tide of war in Ramadi, which was the most war-torn and deadliest terrorist hotzone during the Iraq War.
Jocko and Leif were leaders among the group of soldiers that included Chris Kyle, the American Sniper.
Smarter Faster Better, by Charles Duhigg
I’m in the middle of reading this right now but I want to recommend it because of how interesting it’s turned out to be so far.
Duhigg makes the case for not only using SMART goals, but also stretch goals — and having one without the other is a recipe for disaster or, at the very least, failure.
It’s a book about becoming highly productive. If you’ve read Duhigg’s book on habits (The Power of Habit) you’ll like this one too.
