Twelve Books to Read in the New Year

Next week we will start the Jewish New Year of 5782. This is the right time to make plans!

Below is a list of 12 books I’ve already purchased and I intend to read as soon as possible (not necessarily in this order).

Of course I cannot really recommend a book before I read it, but as I explain below I had a very good reason to buy each one of these books.

Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life


by Jordan Peterson


I really enjoyed reading Jordan Peterson’s previous book “12 Rules for Life”, so this new book is an obvious must read for me.


Noise: A Flaw in Human Judgment

by Daniel Kahneman

Also in the case of Daniel Kahneman I was fascinated by his previous bestseller “Thinking, Fast and Slow”.


Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don’t Know

by Adam Grant

Adam Grant is a person I admire so much that I’ve already decided I will read any book he writes.


The 5 AM Club: Own Your Morning. Elevate Your Life.

by Robin Sharma

I’m very interested in the subject of increased productivity.


Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers

by Timothy Ferriss

I really enjoyed reading “The 4-Hour Workweek” by Tim Ferriss, so I have good expectations about this book.


High Output Management

by Andrew S. Grove

Andy Grove is an industry leader that I admire, and I really would like to learn more about his experience at Intel.


Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy Seals Lead and Win

by Jocko Willink and Leif Babin

I believe the authors have some very interesting experience to share in their book.


Measure What Matters: How Google, Bono, and the Gates Foundation Rock the World with OKRs

by John Doerr

I want to learn more about the concept of Objectives and Key Results (OKRs).


The Art of Impossible: A Peak Performance Primer

by Steven Kotler

I’m interested in learning more about how to improve my personal and professional performance.


Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity

by David Allen

As I wrote above, I’m interested in increased productivity, but of course without the damaging stress.


How To Change: The Science of Getting from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be

by Katy Milkman

I saw many recommendations of this book, and I’m really interested in the subject of changing habits.


The Long Game: How to Be a Long-Term Thinker in a Short-Term World

by Dorie Clark

I had the pleasure to read all the previous books by Dorie Clark. I’m her biggest fan!
