B’s Book Club: December Reads

My favorite reads this month: Not Another Fitness Book, Relentless, and The Kite Runner.

Not Another Fitness Book reads exactly as the title says: fitness and health are much more than the exercises you select and what you eat; it’s also what you think and what you live through.

Relentless is right up there with David Goggins mindset. It was a great kick in the ass, but also a bit over-the-top IMO. I don’t need to always be ‘taking souls’ to live my best life. Maybe that works for some, but it sounds exhausting to me. I also really enjoyed it because it’s far right of Dare to Lead by Brene Brown (my favorite book last month). Relentless and Can’t Hurt Me are two great starts for the new year, then follow them up with Dare to Lead as soon as you’re done.

This review for The Kite Runner says it all: “Because its themes of friendship, betrayal, guilt, redemption and the uneasy love between fathers and sons are universal, and not specifically Afghan, the book has been able to reach across cultural, racial, religious and gender gaps to resonate with readers of varying backgrounds.” –  Khaled Hosseini, 2005



Happy to answer questions about any of the above books! Just because I read them doesn’t mean I enjoyed them, or that you’ll enjoy them. – Brendon
