This page is dedicated to stuff I find entertaining, informative, thought provoking and just downright cool in my opinion (you know what they say about opinions!)
- The 4-Hour Work Week by Timothy Ferris — Still trying to master this one!!
- Microtrends by Mark J. Penn — Must read for entrepreneurs interested in future trends they may be able to capitalize on.
- The Ultimate Sales Machine by Chet Holmes — Great book on core business concepts and focus on success strategies
- The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs — This is a MUST read for any Entrepreneur!!
- The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova — A Novel, re-telling of the Dracula legend–one of the finest novels I’ve read in a long time. I had to add a few non work related books!
- Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card — An oldy and a goody!! This guy can write!!!
- Game of Thrones Series by George R.R. Martin — Really well written and a great twist and turn series; you will find yourself saying “OMG I can’t believe he (the author) just did that!” Highly recommended!
- Lamb by Christopher Moore — One of the most original writers I have read in a long time and absolutely falling down on the floor hilarious!
Movies/Television — this is both cool stuff and thought provoking, usually off the beaten path…
- What the ‘Bleep’ Do We Know?!? — My sister recommended this to me years ago — this is another mindblower
- Speed and Angels — The finest documentary on Naval Aviation, it will pump you up!
- Downton Abbey — Period piece like Upstairs, Downstairs, totally outstanding writing!
- Ip Man — Loosely based true story of Bruce Lee’s Teacher of Wing Chun, very cool!
- Through The Wormhole with Morgan Freeman — This is on the science channel, mindblowing stuff on physics, quantum mechanics etc.
- John Rabe — True story of an Engineer working for Siemens in China when the Japanese invaded — the ironies here are unbelieveable!
- The Walking Dead on AMC — Not a big fan of end of the world zombie movies but this is really well done!
- Hugo — This is a movie lover’s swan song! Absolutely fantastic and is a best picture nominee for sure for the year!
I will continue to add stuff I like as well as suggestions by you overtime. Enjoy and give feedback!!
