What I'm Reading and Listening To

Who Not How by Dan Sullivan and Dr. Benjamin Hardy (Book)

I loved this book. The simple premise is that whenever you need to do something, think about who can do it for you instead of figuring out how to do it yourself. We should be focusing on our strengths and outsourcing our weaknesses, as well as our dislikes. While I’ve been actively doing this for years, the power of this book is how it outlines how to extend this thinking into all areas of your life. It’s motivated me to outsource and delegate even more.

The Ascent of Money by Niall Ferguson (Book)

I can’t believe I’d never heard of this book until recently, but it’s fantastic if you’re interested in learning about the history of money. It’s no secret that history repeats itself, and many of the greatest investors study history to get an edge. Humans are pretty predictable. This book is engaging and worth the read if you’re an investor or want to understand our deep historical relationship with money as both currency and a form of energy.

The Complete Financial History of Berkshire Hathaway by Adam J. Mead (Book)

I’m a big Buffett and Munger fan. I stumbled on this book and have been blown away by how valuable this distillation of Berkshire’s actions and thinking is. If you’re interested in investing and want a great read, this is worth checking out. At over 700 pages, it’s a beast, but I could easily dive into areas that most interest me, and I’ll be revisiting this in the future.
