September 2010 Reading List

Wow, I can’t believe the end of August is around the corner with the summer quickly coming to an end.  Fortunately, fall and winter generally bring better reading conditions for me.  I don’t know about you, but when it’s sunny and warm outside, I try to limit how much time I spend indoors.  While it’s nice to read outside when the weather is nice, I find that I’m more likely to read indoors when it’s cold and rainy or snowy.

Enough about the weather.  September’s reading list is very light (this is the lightest reading list I’ve had so far on the blog) because I’ll be wrapped up in another tax season from now (it started a couple weeks ago) until October 15th.  Unfortunately, my reading time will suffer.

Here are a couple books I hope to read this month:

1) The New Psycho-Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz (this was recommended to me by Maren Kate)

2) Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us by Daniel Pink

If you’ve read or are currently reading any of the books listed here, please share your comments.  I’d love to see what everyone else thinks about these books, especially before I read them.  If you have suggestions for next month’s reading list, please share those too!  As always, you can check out my past reading lists by clicking the Reading link on the top menu.

  1. Interesting reads. I also thought about reading Drive. Yet at the moment I am reading Ghandi’s biography which is highly interesting.
    What is the Psycho-Cybernetics book about?

    Both of those sound like interesting books. Pyscho-Cybernetics is supposed to be about how simple it can be to achieve life-changing goals. Its applications are pretty broad (business, sports, etc.). It’s more of a psychological book. I’ll be able to say more once I read it!

  2. Hey Eric, these sound really interesting books. I’ve seen Drive mentioned, but it’s not made it to my list yet.

    looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

  3. I’m a fan of Psycho-Cybernetics (I’ve never read the “new” one).

    I found it to be a fairly profound book. Actually, that piece of schlock they call “The Secret” stole a lot from Psycho-Cybernetics, but they took out all the psychology parts and attributed the effect to “magic”.

    Thanks for the comment, Ryan. I’m only a chapter or so in, and it’s pretty interesting so far. I’ve heard it has legitimately changed the way people think, so I’m excited to see what I get out of it.

  4. You should read “The Barefoot Investor” by Scott Pape, really simple and interesting book. Have given it to friends a few times now (whether they liked it or not) and I’ve read it a few times myself.

    Barefootinvestor.com is de site.

    Cheers,

    Ralph
