I received a lot of great feedback about the books recommendations I have started making in The 10 posts. Honestly, I am going to read a book each week whether or not I share them here. I do think it’s fun to announce them publicly so that you can read them, and we can share our thoughts on them. Think about reading them and sending me your comments on Twitter or Facebook!
Book I read this week: The Win Within: Capturing Your Victorious Spirit by Bert R. Mandelbaum, MD. I interviewed Dr. Mandelbaum last week for the book I’m writing. He has worked with top athletes and elite teams and leagues during his career, so he has tremendous perspective on the challenges athletes face when they suffer a serious injury. In this book, he offers insight into ways you can overcome adversity and accomplish big goals, whether or not you are an elite athlete.
Book I’m reading next week: Influence: Science and Practice (5th Edition) by Robert B. Cialdini, Ph. D. Almost everyone who discusses influence mentions Dr. Cialdini, and this book specifically, as a go-to source about the power of persuasion.
