I'm curious to discover some great books to challenge my thinking and change my perspective. Any good ones you have read or heard of lately? BTW - I'm reading "Working Hard, Hardly Working" and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to achieve more and feels fulfilled.

I'm a huge fan off " The 4-Hour Workweek, by Tim Ferriss". Life is all about doing what you love!

I'd say "The Selfish Gene" by Richard Dawkins is a pretty challenging read.

I highly recommend Make Time to anyone who wants to rethink their day-2-day routines, be less reactive, and make time for what's really important. Reading it currently for the 2nd time :)

A few I've read / are on my to read list. I'm taking the definition of "challenge your thinking" quite broadly, I hope you'll find something interesting :) - Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World - The power of habit - Talking to strangers - Educated: a memoir - Stop reading the news - Bullsh*t jobs (I read it first as an employee, and I keep it top of mind now as an entrepreneur:) - Why I'm no longer talking to white people about race - Me and white supremacy - Disability Visibility: First-Person Stories from the Twenty-First Century - Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother's Will to Survive And then a fiction book which in covid times I found much closer to a non-fiction: Blindness by Saramago.

Never Split the Difference: Negotiating As If Your Life Depended On It might be interesting to you. I wrote a review with some of the lessons The main things to understand is that compromise is bad and your best leverage is knowing the unknowns.
-The One Thing is a great book for finding your life goal and moving to reach it. -Brief: Make a Bigger Impact has taught me be more clear.
