Books reviewed on a 5-star scale (5 being the best):
#1 – The Billionaire Who Wasn’t ***** Absolutely loved this book. Chuck Feeney is someone I aspire to be more like.
#2 – The Running Man ***** One of my new favorite Stephen King books.
#3 – Thirst ***** TERRIFIC entrepreneurial and inspirational story.
#4 – Start Something That Matters *** Story of Tom’s Shoes. I was hoping for more story of the journey and instead it was more about how to build a company with heart. Which is a great thing to study, but I’ve personally studied that enough…so this would probably be rated higher for others, but for me, a 3-star(er).
#5 – Kitchen Confidential ***** Absolutely loved this book. I never knew much about Anthony Bordain, and now I’m kinda obsessed. Immediately jumped into his second book. Bonus, they’re both on Audible and he reads them, which he does extremely well.
#6 – Flash Boys *** Enjoyed it but dragged in places, and not as good as some of his others.
#7 – Final Days ** Eventually bailed on this about halfway through. Just kind of felt like the same thing over and over…lost interest.
#8 – Letters from a Self-Made Merchant to his Son * Honestly found this so-so. Many people highly recommended it, but it wasn’t resonated with me. Then, out of nowhere, it casually used the n-word, which caused me to put it down for good. I understand it was written in “old times”, but then go back and edit it (I read it on Kindle, changing it would have been easy.)
#11 – Finding Ultra ****
#12 – Neon Prey ****
#13 – White Fragility *****
