Top Reads: 500+ Great Books

These are the audio books I have listened to and recommend for leaders and creators and people looking to learn the patterns of of achievement and get sparks for to create new and great things.  - Jess

Manuals for life (450+ Non-fiction)

My good friend, and soon to be guest on the show, the self made entrepreneur and now law school Professor Ryan Clements is probably the only guy I know who reads more of these kinds of books then me. He's seriously an animal in the never ending way he consumes learning, and so took a class on negotiating at Harvard I quickly followed his example and found a class for me.  Heading out east to take the class at Harvard's Business School on Private Equity & Venture Capital I thought $10 was pretty expensive, but getting that quality of data from people like Professor Josh Learner, on a subject I thought I knew, after all I was running my own fund in the space, ended up becoming a turning point in my career and has been worth every penny.

If you can't tell I am huge proponent of investing in educating your self. Not the " I'll suffer through this class so I can hang a piece of paper on my wall that will impress people" kind, but the discovery of relevant patterns that can then be practiced enough times to create competence if not mastery. That's why I loved last years entrepreneurship class that took last year at Stanford's Graduate School of Business including the D.School's Design Thinking class.It was great, it is a big factor in my inspiration to create this media company.

However, if I am being honest, besides some lame thoughts that I am tempted to have, feeding my sense of self-importance, that some how I matter more to society because I can in some small way name drop these two schools, (ridiculous right)? When I'm really honest, my $11 per audio-book purchases on the Audible.com subscription program have been more valuable.

My real classroom has been stealing minutes here and there to listen to these audiobooks while commuting to work, cleaning up after kids and cooking dinner and sitting in airports. I have learned how to care more about others and some of the patterns of high achievers. 

The magic for me is that I can get these "professors" class (book) back anytime. Many of these book I whip through the first time on the Audible app just to hear whats in them and then catalog them in my mind so later when I am working on that issue thoughts will pop up and I just re-load the book and listen to it for the 2nd, 3rd or 4th time. No additional $10k needed.

These are the books I have constantly tried to cram down the throats of my closest friends and family and now I am going to try to up my game and try to cajole all of you reading this into as many of these as I feel will help your life get better.

In the coming months I will be trying to get interviews with as many of these authors as will make the time. I am hoping the interviews will be the hook that invites you to want to invest in yourself and please email me to tell me what your favorite books are.

Escapes for fun (175+ Fiction)

If your asking the question, "Why are profiling 150+ books that are all mostly from the Jason Borune genre?" My answer is would be that I am trying to make it more ok for "focused achievers" to have an off switch. My guess is that many of you have felt guilty, like I have, for not working every working minute. And yet the truly exceptional specialist I have met have shown me by the way they live there lives that "100% focus" is a myth.

As an "fancy sounding" example, a billionaire mentor and co-investor of mine who was generous enough to have us fellow board members out on his yacht for a few days told us that the main rule on this multistory piece of craftsmanship was that he didn't allow conversations about politics or business.

I was shocked, business was pretty much the only thing I talked about in those days, and here I was with my business partners on a multi-day trip.

He went on to explain his value in connecting with friends in nature, (we were off the coast of a ruggedly beautiful andlargely uninhabited coast line), and taking the rare chance to "disconnect".

While I typically try to listen to at least one business book each week there is defiantly a burn out factor on listen to, talking about and brainstorming how we're going to achieve what ever project I am onat any given time. These books, (as well as art projects with my kids, dating my wife and snowmobile snowboarding with buddies) are my disconnect so I can come back and hit it hard tomorrow.

I hope my little diatribe here , plus seeing how much I really do indulge in my "escapes for fun" can give you a little more permission to enjoy your life not just survive it.
