The Library: my list of book recommendations

I’m an avid reader. I’ve always been. In my twenties I got hooked on reading books about business, self-improvement and mindset, biographies or career advice books, so that’s what I can share more of. I’ll keep it short and sweet so you don’t need to TL;DR. But I may keep adding to it.

On getting better at life:

  • The slight edge : a book that really convinced me to work slowly on becoming better. Hint : the compounding effects of habit.

  • Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less : so helpful for multipassionate people like me, who are used to conforming to expectations and doing the right thing. We sometimes need a little push to learn what is really important and how to prioritise it and in this book we find just the help we need.

On living… more?

  • The Art of Frugal Hedonism Is about small tweaks that can make life more enjoyable, minimalistic and somehow luxurious… without having to spend more. An enjoyable read that is also instructional.

On pursuing your call/ committing to your craft:

  • John Livingston Seagull : I had to read it twice, the first time (I was very young) I couldn’t stand it but the second time it did touch me.

But life is not a rat race, so let’s throw in some other stuff (surf books!):

  • Gidget ; the book I wished I had read as a teen

And a bit of love (because everybody needs it and some extra-education comes inf handy):
