Dan Brown – Inferno

I hadn’t realised Dan Brown had written another Robert Langdon book, but here we go, book number 4. When I first started reading it I thought Dan had jumped the shark as it was intentionally confusing for everyone, not just the reader but also the characters, but as it started to unwind and develop it […]

Neal Stephenson – Seveneves

This book was simply amazing to read. I chained it on the train from Copenhagen to Hamburg to Vienna, I simply could not put it down. Spanning 5,000 years, set on Earth as well as in Space I was gripped from start to finish. Telling the story of a group of scientists trying to save […]

Daniel Wendler – Improve Your Social Skills

My social life took a bit of a hit when I first fell ill almost 2 years ago now. I went from squatting twice my body weight at CrossFit, salsa dancing, performing fire shows and going out 3-4 times a week on just soda and lime to breaking down, becoming a recluse, feeling terrible all […]

The story is a dark one, with death, suicide, witches and a portal to another world, told through the […]

Mark Manson – Models: Attract Women Through Honesty

Jordan Gray – How To Be The Most Engaging Person In The Room

This book was either free or £0.99 so I thought I’d give it a pop. At 29 pages it’s ickle. Very ickle and was a doddle to read. After 15 years of spending my 9-5 mostly isolated at a desk with nothing but Skype, iTunes and a set of earbuds for company I now spend […]

American Diabetes Association – What To Expect When You Have Diabetes

This book is split up in to 170 different questions, questions like: Can I catch diabetes from someone else? Why should I work so hard to improve my blood-sugar level? How will alcohol affect my blood sugar? I easily get overwhelmed with decisions. Would I do better if I had planned meals? Why is fat […]
