First Quarter 2019 – Books Read

I set a goal of reading 40 books this year – 10 more than 2018.  You can follow along throughout the year at my Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/9256971-damon

This is the list of what I read in Q1:

1. Fact & Memory by Keith Dow and Tyler Carroll

The first release from veteran owned and operated publishing company, Dead Reckoning Collective. Fact & Memory is a collection of poetry about growing up, trauma, loss, love and happiness. Mostly it is about getting a lot of things wrong before you start getting them right and how you remember those events versus how they actually happened.”

2. Can’t Hurt Me by David Goggins

In Can’t Hurt Me, he shares his astonishing life story and reveals that most of us tap into only 40% of our capabilities. Goggins calls this The 40% Rule, and his story illuminates a path that anyone can follow to push past pain, demolish fear, and reach their full potential.”

3. The Laws of Lifetime Growth by Dan Sullivan

Outlines ten ‘laws’ that give readers an internal framework for taking charge of their future.”

4. Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life by Anne Lamott

Superb writing advice… hilarious, helpful and provocative.”

5. The Alter Ego Effect by Todd Herman

A top performance expert reveals the secret behind many top athletes and executives: creating a heroic alter ego to activate when the chips are down.”

6. I’m Not for Everyone. Neither Are You by David Leddick

Written down as ‘notes to myself’ over the course of eight decades plus as a dancer/advertising superstar/performer/playwright/author, David Leddick teaches us that how you see yourself is how others see you So find your own style and express it as freely as you would a work of art.”
