It's the time of year where everyone has a "look back" or a "here's my list" post...so I figured I would join in on the fun and do both in just one post. So without further ado, here is my list of the audio books I've listened too (or am about to listen to) through all of 2019.
I'll leave it to you to pick out the trends and form your own opinions on the type of content I am consuming throughout my commuting.
The Many Lives of Michael Bloomberg: Innovation, Money, and Politics by Eleanor Randolph
Trailblazer: The Power of Business as the Greatest Platform for Change by Marc Benioff, Monica Langley
The Infinite Game by Simon Sinek
What You Do Is Who You Are: How to Create Your Business Culture by Ben Horowitz
Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know About the People We Don't Know by Malcolm Gladwell
Belichick: The Making of the Greatest Football Coach of All Time by Ian O'Connor
Super Thinking: The Big Book of Mental Models by Gabriel Weinberg, Lauren McCann
Secrets of Sand Hill Road: Venture Capital and How to Get It by Scott Kupor, Eric Ries
The Theory of Everything: The Quest to Explain All Reality by Don Lincoln, The Great Courses

The Score Takes Care of Itself: My Philosophy of Leadership by Bill Walsh, Steve Jamison, Craig Walsh
Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln by Doris Kearns Goodwin
And there you have it...about 2 audio books a month (on average). I also read a few print books and a lot of online things (like newsletters, blogs, and articles). And of course I listen to a decent amount of radio (and talk radio) too...so these aren't the only things bouncing around in my head throughout the year, but they are definitely a big part of the direction much of my thinking takes throughout the year.
So - what was in your list? What should I make sure to get through next year?
