Wisdom Letter #172
Welcome to Wisdom Letter 172.
This week we continue with our recap of 2022.
Last week we shared the top 5 best articles of the year. Today we’re sharing the top 5 books that we read this year.
We have specifically picked the books that will force you to think about how you live life and what does it all mean 🤔
Perfect for December reading.
Let’s get into it 👇
How to Live - 27 conflicting answers and one weird conclusion
If you're looking for a thought-provoking read that will challenge your preconceived notions about how to live, then this book from Derek Sivers is a must-read.
It examines 27 different ways to approach life, with each of the answers seeming to contradict the other.
But in the end, Sivers presents a unique and weird conclusion that will change the way you view life and how to live it.
BTW - this book was inspired by our next book in the list -
Sum - 40 tales from the afterlife - David Eagleman.
If you're looking for a book that will have you questioning the meaning of life, I highly recommend this book by David Eagleman.
It contains 40 imaginative stories that explore the afterlife in different scenarios.
Through these stories, Eagleman challenges readers to consider the nature of death and the possibilities of what comes next.
With its interesting concepts and captivating storytelling, this book will leave you with plenty to contemplate.
Four Thousand Weeks - Oliver Burkeman
This book dives into the concept of time and how it affects our lives, exploring the implications of how we spend our time, and how it affects our relationships, decisions, goals, and overall well-being.
Oliver Burkeman offers practical advice to help readers make the most of their time, and encourages readers to live in the present moment and appreciate life's precious moments.
This is a must-read for anyone looking to make the most of their time and enjoy life to the fullest.
Because after all, we only live for 4000 weeks 🤷
The Pathless Path - Paul Millerd
This book will make sense to you if you feel weird running the corporate rat race.
If you were part of the great resignation (like I was), or if you’re considering ditching the traditional career path and finding your own way, then this is a must read.
Paul has done it, and succeeded at it.
And there’s a lot to learn from his story.
Recursion - Blake Crouch
This is a mind bender.
A thrilling science fiction book amidst a bunch of non-fiction books.
But Blake Crouch is a must read for everyone.
With its ever-shifting plot and thought-provoking themes, Recursion is a captivating read that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
And by the end it will give you a lot to think about!
Hope you enjoy these books through the month.
