What I’m reading right now

Filed under: Uncategorized — Simon May @ 1:18 pm

If all goes well, and I don’t see why it won’t, this post should come out whilst I’m off on vacation having just been to an old friends wedding.  Obviously I’ve taken some holiday reading, an iPhone on the beach just doesn’t cut it for me.  Reviews when I get back.

The 4-hour Work Week: Escape the 9-5, Live Anywhere and Join the New RichFirst up is the 4 hour work week, by @timferris (a.k.a) Tim Ferris.  If you’ve not heard of it then you’ve missed something, it’s about how to better manage your life, have more fun, automate your income and other interesting stuff.  I’m hoping it’s going to give me some ideas.

Brilliant NLP: What the Most Successful People Know, Say and DoBrilliant NLP is next up, it’ll be my second attempt at reading this having not managed it last time I went away.  NLP is a system for “programming” yourself to get more out of your interactions with others, it’s a system that’s always interested me and lots of what’s involved I do naturally.

The Gum ThiefThe Gum Thief, by Douglas Coupland is the first of the fiction I’ll be digging into.  I really enjoyed JPod , and I’m currently watching the TV series.  Coupland has razor sharp wit and I hope this lives up to his previous works.

The BombmakerThe HijackThe last two novels are, The Bombmaker by Stephen Leather, and The Hijack by Duncan Falconer, which should be satisfying my need for reading about explosions and manly stuff.  I actually seriously doubt I’m going to get this far, I don’t read fast enough.
