This book takes a deep dive into the wild mind of one of the greatest designers of our lifetimes. Credit again to Isaacson. I am reading through his series in reverse order, starting first with his biography on Da Vinci. What is fascinating about this biography however, is that he…


I read this book in October of 2019. This is one of those feel-good, see-believe-achieve, type of books. That being said, I loved it. I read this book in one week if I remember correctly. I was actually in the field and I packed it in my ruck, hoping that…


A deep dive into the life and legacy of Leonardo Da Vinci has certainly left me with many insights about our existence and the collective human condition. This was the first biography that I ever read. I read this book in September of 2019. Biographies are interesting because they allow…

This is the greatest historical fiction ever written. Reading this book was like watching the most captivating movie ever. I first read this book in October of 2018 and I just re-read it this past year while I was in Iraq. I have absolutely no idea how Steven Pressfield created…


I read this book first in September 2018, then again in 2020 before I deployed. This is a book about honor and suffering. Frankl exemplifies what it truly means to be a man of honor. It is an eye-opening book about the meaning of suffering and the meaning of life…


This book is about the human habit loop and the power that it holds in all of us. I am not a psychologist, nor do I have a comprehensive understanding of all the literature surrounding the psychology of habits however, I would regard this book as the complete package regarding…
