The Primal Blueprint: Reprogramme your genes for effortless weight loss, vibrant health and boundless energy – Is the book I first read regarding the Primal movement, written by Mark Sisson. It is the sole reason I changed my lifestyle (for the better I may add). The book pretty much covers everything you need to start living Primally. From information regarding the Primal movement, to diet and eating habits through to exercise. It is pretty much your one stop manual to start living a Primal life. Mark also has a website called Mark’s Daily Apple were he discusses all things primal on a daily basis. It is a great website to find out everything you would want to know about the Primal lifestyle and is one of the resources I use most often. I recommended starting here if you are a newbie.
Primal Blueprint Cookbook (Primal Blueprint Series) – I bought this cookbook shortly after switching to the Primal way of life. I found it a great resource to keep variety in your diet, nothing worse than eating the same 3 meals over and over. The book covers a variety of dishes from evening meals, salads to snacks and even drink suggestions. I have tried numerous recipes from this book. My personal favourites being the Moroccan chicken, roast beef, and chicken curry, the peach salad is a must try for something a bit different.
The $100 Startup: Fire Your Boss, Do What You Love and Work Better To Live More – I found this book really inspirational and is great at showing you that you don’t need a lot of money. Or come up with the next big idea to start a business or side hustle. This book is jam packed with people who have branched out on their own. The gentleman who started his own mattress business and had to delivery them on his push bike is a real personal favourite.
The 4-Hour Work Week: Escape the 9-5, Live Anywhere and Join the New Rich – This book has become a worldwide best seller and lots of people have recommended it as one of their must reads. Along with the $100 Startup, I found this a real inspiration which led me to try and start my own businesses. This book is full of tips and tricks. From validating business ideas to running your company remotely. I’m sure if you read it you would find something of use that you can use. There aren’t many books that I have read multiple times or refer back to on a regular basis. This is one of them.
Start Small, Stay Small: A Developer's Guide to Launching a Startup – This is really a slimmed down version of the The 4-Hour Work Week. Aimed specifically at programmers and developers who would like to start their own business. Focusing on starting, running and potentially selling a business relating to software. I would recommend it if you are a developer by trade and looking to start your own side hustle. This is another book I have read a few times and have used as a reference/how to guide.
Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers – I have listened to Tim Ferriss’ Podcast for years and always found value from his guests. This book compiles a list of habits or routines from a wide variety of “successful” people. Having read it from cover to cover it has helped my in all aspects of my life. Loads of useful tips that I use in my day to day life. If you are interested in what makes people tick. In particular people who have smashed it in their field then this is a great read. Again, I’m sure you would find a little nugget of information that you will find useful<.p>
Tribe of Mentors: Short Life Advice from the Best in the World – As you can tell, I’m a bit of a Tim Ferriss fanboy. Tribe of Mentors is another great read. Slightly different from Tools of Titans. Jam packed with useful titbits none the less. Is it the first book I have really booked marked loads of pages to refer back to. I sometimes struggle to pick what I should read next, this book is full of recommendations. I have also found some great purchase recommendations. From back massagers to rucksacks. There is loads in there.
Money Master the Game: 7 Simple Steps to Financial Freedom - Tony Robbins is a best selling author, god knows how many people he has helped achieve their goals. He does tend to pad out his books, although this one has loads of great money advice. Tony does a good job of explaining a lot of concepts relating to money and investing. If you have thought about getting into the investing game in the past but are a bit wary and don't know where to begin. This book is a great starting point
Rich Dad Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! - I have a paperback copy of this book as well as an audio version. Whether you like Robert Kiyosaki and the products he and his business offer. I find his advice and views on money in this book refreshing and it has changed my viewpoint regarding cash flow.
The Richest Man In Babylon - I loved this book. A quick read, very short and sweet. If you are looking for a quick and easy guide to help you manage and grow your savings pots. This book is a great place to start with. It details tried and trusted methods of managing your money dating back thousands of years. With accounts of people still applying the principles in the modern day.
