I’m a total Tim Ferriss Show nerd. Tim interviews interesting people, they say interesting stuff, it’s as simple as that. One of the questions Tim asks every guest is what book or books they’ve given most as a gift. It’s a clever way of asking which books have had a big impact on them. (It’s also a clever way of selling books and getting affiliate income, but that’s neither here nor there.)
Since it’s the season of gift-giving, I’ve found myself buying books as gifts and I thinking about which of the books I’ve read this year have had a big impact on me. Here are my top 5 – the act of giving them away allows me to share a little of the joy I had with someone else.
