      Thought I’d get a list started of books that you guys have all found valuable lately.

      I’ll go first:

      1. Profit First – Mike Michalowicz – learn how to get organised with your money

      2. The Buck Starts Here – Alan M Dobzinski – Get yourself and your team to be accountable.


      Carl Nottoli, DC

        Here’s a good long list for your summer reading…or winter depending on which hemisphere you occupy.

        Start with Why by Simon Sinek

        Leaders Eat Last by Simon Sinek

        Good to Great by Jim Collins

        Essentialism by Greg Mckeown

        Extreme Ownership and follow up book, Dichotomy of Leadership by Jocko Willink and Leif Babin

        Grit by Angela Duckworth

        Peak by Robert Pool and Anders Ericsson

        The Obstacle is the Way by Ryan Holiday

        High Performance Habits by Brendon Burchard

        48 Laws of Power, Mastery, and Laws of Human Nature by Robert Greene

        Principles: Life and Work by Ray Dalio

        12 Rules for Life by Jordan Peterson

        How to Change your Mind by Michael Pollan

        Getting to Yes and Getting Past No by William Ury

        Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl

        Nonviolent Communication by Marshall Rosenberg

        This is Marketing by Seth Godin


        Matthew Ellerbrock

          I cannot believe that Carl has not read this book yet.


          Cody Scharf, DC

            Carl already listed off almost every book published in the last decade but I would also add:

            The Dichotomy of Leadership – Willink/Babin

            The Compound Effect – Darren Hardy

            Goals – Brian Tracy

            Rich Dad, Poor Dad

            Denying to the Grave: Why We Ignore The Facts That Will Save Us – Gorman

            Everybody Lies – Stephens-Davidowitz


            Adam Holen D.C.

              Carl really hit the nail on the head with some of the top recommendations I’d have, especially Principles & Laws of Human Nature. On the topic of business/personal development, I’d add Poor Charlies Almanac.

              One concept I’d highly recommend, not only for business but also personal life are books related to meditation. There’s a tremendous amount of research showing the benefits of meditation for everything from focus to happiness. The best ones I’ve read so far are Waking Up by Sam Harris, The Art of Happiness (at work) & The Book of Joy by the Dalai Lama, and for more practical use 10% Happier and Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics by Dan Harris.


              Paul Nottoli

                To piggyback on the many I have read with these lists.

                Can’t Hurt Me By David Goggins

                It Doesn’t Have To Be Crazy At Work & ReWork by David Heinemeir Hansson and Jason Fried

                Atomic Habits by James Clear

                Anything You Want By Derek Sivers

                This is Marketing & Purple Cow by Seth Godin ( I like all of Seth Godin’s Books)

                Finish by Jon Acuff


                Anthony Moreno

                  “The Passion of Command; The Moral Imperative of Leadership”, by Colonel B. P. McCoy


                  Brandon Cohen DC, CSCS

                    I’m impressed with all the readers here.

                    My most recent favorites are:

                    Dragons love tacos (Adam Rubin)

                    Mikey and the Dragons (Jocko Willink)
