The Code of the Extraordinary Mind is a blueprint of laws to break us free from the shackles of ordinary life. It makes a case that everything we know about the world is mostly decided not by rational choice but instead by conditioning and habit. And thus most people live their lives based on limiting rules and outdated beliefs about pretty much everything - love, work, money, parenting, sex, health, and more - that they inherit and pass on from generation to generation.

I have completed two mindvalley courses which were both really great so thought I'd take a listen to this book. It's such an eye opener and so proactive, it's really difficult to stop listening! One of the most profound and empowering books I have ever read/listened to.

I've only recently discovered Dr Jordan Peterson on YouTube and I was intrigued by his book. It is intense and highly logical with everything thoroughly explained in the highest of detail. I've taken a number of points in which I am using in my life now with a very positive effect. Highly recommended.

The 3-Day Effect is a look at the science behind why being in the wild for a minimum of three days can make us happier, healthier and more creative. Whether it’s rafting down Utah’s Green River, backpacking in Colorado wilderness or strolling through Rock Creek Park in Washington, D.C., scientists are finding that immersions in nature can reduce anxiety, enhance creativity and boost overall well-being.

I'm just about to take 3 days in the wilderness after listening to the positive results that all the participants gained during their time spent with nature. I can't wait to see how I feel after a few days of reconnection.

Robert Kiyosaki has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people around the world think about money. With perspectives that often contradict conventional wisdom, Robert has earned a reputation for straight talk, irreverence and courage. He is regarded worldwide as a passionate advocate for financial education. According to Kiyosaki, "The main reason people struggle financially is because they have spent years in school but learned nothing about money."

Fascinating differences between rich and poor mindsets. This book explains the process of investing for wealth very clearly and has definitely helped me realise why my middle class goals have kept me from financial independence. Highly recommended.

Extreme success, by definition, lies beyond the realm of normal action. If you want to achieve extreme success, you can’t operate like everybody else and settle for mediocrity. You need to remove luck and chance from your business equation, and lock in massive success. The 10X Rule shows you how!

Brutal honesty from 'your boy GC'. This book has had a profound effect on me and made me realise why my average thinking has kept me from the success I should have. I didn't like Grant's brash style at first but he's grown in me and I love how he explains everything simply but effectively. Highly recommended.
