Book Notes

Hi! On this page you can find my book notes on some of the books I've read. They're not just copy-pasta from the book themselves but the literature notes for my Zettelkasten. In other words, they're the notes I use for my writing, too. Feel free to browse around and read the ones about the books that interest you most!

The One Thing

The One Thing

This book is very effective at focusing your attention on what matters most. While it contains some superfluous productivity tips, the core of the book is incredibly helpful to determine what you should focus on and what your most important priorities are. Highly recommended for anyone.
The Meaning of Life

The Meaning of Life

The School of Life excels at painting pictures with words. In this book they're pictures about the sources of, the obstacles to and the joy gained from a meaningful life. Light but satisfying reading.
Extreme Ownership

Extreme Ownership

A great book with timeless leadership lessons by former navy seals Jocko Willink and Leif Babin. You'll come out more responsible, tactical and stronger than when you began reading the book. I recommend it for everyone looking for timeless leadership lessons or fans of Jocko's podcast.
The War of Art

The War of Art

This book is about Resistance - the personification of everything that holds you back. The purpose of the book equips you with the mindset to overcome everything that holds you back. It's a short, direct and packs a punch. Highly recommended for anyone feelings stuck or tired of their own bullshit.
