I read lots of books. It’s not that I love to read. I just want to get better. Every day.
Interesting look into how animals senses shape their world and what more we can learn. This goes beyond just the traditional 5 senses and into more detail about things like pulsations and electromagnetic fields, which some animals can use and detect. The book is fairly academic so a basic interest in the animal kingdom will help but there is certainly a human aspect to the entire book.
An Immense World
Books | Ed Yong
The story of the lone survivor of the Yarnell wildfire. Really moving story of a boy who had many struggles growing up and finds himself as a part of the Hotshots, a wildland firefighting team, in Arizona. Sadly, a huge fire kills 19 members of his team and he lived to tell their story.

Interesting business book on all things lead generation from marketing to sales. Filled with a lot of impactful data especially around follow up. For me, I didn’t get a lot out of the scripting portions particularly on sales but it would be impossible to read this and not learn at least one way to be better in sales or marketing.
The Conversion Code
Books | Chris Smith
Went into this open minded and it was a better piece of writing than expected. The book is mostly about the 4 years he was in the Trump admin, but goes into quite a few issues/crisis I hadn’t heard of, mostly in diplomatic relations. For example, he spent a ton of time with the Middle East and negotiating peace deals. There is also an odd dynamic in that he is liberal and was often mocked for it. Overall, I think it’s worth a read.
