Health

How to Eat, Move and be Healthy is my own personal health bible. Paul Chek has put together a great book full of lessons, illustrations and tips to become healthier and happier. Paul has been a huge inspiration to me. If you apply the theories in this book, health will be yours. Enjoy!

Evolution

Daniel Lieberman is a paleo-anthropologist from Harvard University. He is an expert in human evolution and taught me all about the Mismatch Theory:

We evolved certain advantages by living in specific environments. When the environment we live in changes, some of our adaptations no longer serve us. For example, we evolved to search out sugar to help us survive. Now sugar is readily available, our innate drive to find sugar has created a world wide obesity epidemic!

Personal evolution

Siddhartha is such a fantastic read. It follows the life story of a man who travels across India searching for the answers to life's biggest questions. When I finished reading this book I had a better understanding of the meaning of life. I felt lighter, happier and more at ease with my own life. It's the kind of book that just makes you feel better about yourself.

I can think. I can wait. I can fast.
— Herman Hesse, Siddhartha

There's something I love about the simplicity of a life devoted to developing these three skills!

HEALTH

David Perlmutter's book, Grain Brain is a must read for anyone who cares about their brain. David Perlmutter is an MD (medical doctor), Fellow of the American College of Nutrition and Board-Certified Neurologist, the only of his kind in America. He makes a crystal clear argument for avoiding gluten and a diet high in carbohydrates. If you want to avoid Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's and Dementia then this book is worth reading.

EVOLUTION

Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari is an excellent read. If you want to understand our race a little better, this a great place to start. The book addresses: how our species became so dominant; why we came together to create cities and kingdoms; why we came to believe in gods, nations and human rights; why we trust money, books and laws; and why we have become enslaved by bureaucracy, timetables and consumerism!

PERSONAL EVOLUTION

The Chimp Paradox by Professor Steve Peters is one of the best books I ever read. It's teaches us how manage our mind, relationships and work life to be more successful. He explains how the evolution of our brain makes us do things we wouldn't choose to do if given the time. This book will change your life for the better.
