Book # 2: "The Time Paradox"

The next book up for reading is a brand new one by Philip Zimbardo. I thought I would choose this next as this was recently published and I am intrigued by the cover. Titles like this always catch the inquisitive side of me. The summaries I will write for each book is a new tool for me, I never used to do that. I wish I had started long ago. After countless hundreds of books over the years, there is no way of really remembering every book without doing them. Sure I remember the big ones, like "Power, How To Get It, How To Use It", "Dress For Success" by John T. Molloy. I had read those back in high school. But many others have passed through my hands, long but forgotten. Never too late to start!

Book #1 Review

Book #1 is to be the definitive go-to guide for all things nonverbal. It offers a powerful way to read others quickly and accurately. Definitely worth the read. Well, on to the next book!

A Goal To Read 200 Books This Year

Having read 600-1000 book over the years, I am rediscovering the value gained from this. This year my goal is to read 200 books AND to write a detailed summary of each. Books are so valuable and immensely critical in personal growth and education.

Share with me as I chronicle the books I read this year and post my thoughts on each. Do you have a reading goal? Write me and let me know.

Book #1:
"What Every Body Is Saying" by Joe Navarro. "An Ex-FBI Agent's Guide to Speed-Reading People".

Stay tuned!
