    Let's get a thread going for all of our book recommendations, whether fiction or non-fiction.

    What have you read recently?

    My last read was 'The 4 Disciplines of Execution' - it's an eye-opening yet simple way to go about achieving goals by focussing on the process more so than the actual goal measure itself. Highly recommended.

    I am not much of a reader, I read Losing by Virginity by Richard Branson though which I enjoyed.

    @Andy what is the best motivational book you have read?

    That is a great book @Matt, I love all of Richard's books.

    That's a tough question, but I'd probably say 'Shoe Dog' by Phil Knight tops the list - fascinating story of his life and the journey as he took Nike to its lofty heights.

    I could probably sit here all day recommending books so I'll filter them out slowly to not overwhelm :p

    One thing I recommend if you're not much of a reader, Audible!

    Infact, it has to be tied with the Daily Stoic. If you're not much of a reader I still recommend grabbing it as it's broken into one daily wisdom per day for 365 days of the year. Pick it up in the morning, read a couple of paragraphs and put it down for the next day.
