My Favorite Ounces Of Literature 2.0
I also had the chance to start shuffling through some of the posts that I have put up over the years and see what I have enjoyed as well as figure out what to do with some of the "wow I would have done that differently" posts that have come about since scratching away on this blog.
I also had a revelation that it has been a little while since I last wrote about reading which I consider a little selfish since I have been doing a little more reading than writing these days then why wouldn't I be writing about what I am reading.
So here is numero deux of My Favorite Ounces of Literature and here is hoping that it provides you with some unique reads and boozy innuendos like Volume 1.
The wild card of the mix started as an impulse purchase while hanging out in the Chicago airport.
Long story short I love music and my love for music has accumulated a playlist as eclectic as a big city public transit system and Wu-Tang has become a big part of it.
When it comes to requiring a musical kick in the ass to get you fired up for a workout there is nothing that has done it for me like having Raekwon's Only Built For Cuban Linx rattling my skull pre workout.
So why not hear the story from the RZA, the mastermind of the incredible Wu-Tang legacy.
RZA has some crazy stories of his early inspirations, life, death, and the evolution of the Wu-Tang Clan which was my biggest interest in the read.
Once again I am sure this is open for discussion but I have to say that there is no better message delivered when it comes to successful expression being an integration of good/bad experiences, sharing what you know and like and being comfortable in your own skin.
Game changer. I have read a few of Daniel Pink's books in the past but this is one that absolutely blew my mind.
Since this whole economic meltdown of 2008 I have really taken a fascination in what the outlook of the new age work force and this book lays it out like no other.
Pink tackles five different aspects that are re shaping the new age work force and affecting our society profoundly. I don't know what else to say other than this is an absolute must read if you are wondering where you stand professionally and what to do to make the most of it.
If you are a trainer I cannot express it enough how much this book has done when it comes to knowing how to complement the science of training with being a right brained thinking, empathy, storytelling and listening.
Training is a human profession and it pays to be human.
The World's Strongest Librarian
My most recent consumption and I have to say that this book is just an absolute gem. Josh Hanagarne shares his incredible story of growing up in a world of books, faith, family and his struggle with Tourrette's in a way that almost implants you into his life and has you live it.
Even more impressive being his way of understanding his body through lifting weights and eventually learning how to manage his tics through getting to know his body.
There are an endless amount of life lessons and I am a little lost for words when it comes to how positive of an experience reading this book really was.
Well, that's how it goes
Another book review well, in the books.
A small taste of what I have been consuming recently and I'll finish by leaving it open to any literary drinking buddies that may be reading this post.
Any book recommendations for myself or any other readers I am all ears so leave a comment below or hit me up on Facebook with any books that have rocked your world.
