Our friends at the Legal Talk Network sent Tom Mighell and I the stats on episode downloads of our podcast in 2019. I wanted to share those because it will give new listeners some good suggestions on where to start. Remember that the stats are for the whole year and that puts the most recent
Everywhere I look, people are doing some kind of “best of 2019” lists. I thought I’d jump into the retrospective waters and take a look back at my best 2019 posts.

For quite a few years, I’ve enjoyed reading the posts of several bloggers who are trying to read 52 books in 52 weeks. I’ve also wanted to find a good way for me to keep track of the books I’ve read. And it gives me a good reading target to shoot for.
Last year, I read 115 books, exceeding my goal by quite a bit. Or, more accurately, I listed 115 books that I read. I don’t list books that might reveal certain things I might (or might not) be working on. You will also notice tat I’ve been attempting to read the entire catalog of books of certain authors of detective stories. If 2018, those were Marcia Muller (Sharon McCone) and Peter Robinson (Inspector Banks).
If you forced me to pick a top 10 for 2018 (or ten recommendations for books you might read), I’d probably list:
Autonomous, Annalee Newitz
The Hard Thing About Hard Things, Ben Horowitz
Build an A Team, Whitney Johnson
Portfolio Life, David Corbett
The E-Myth Revisited, Michael Gerber
For All the Tea in China, Sarah Rose
Gridiron Genius, Mike Lombardi
Creative Strategy, William Duggan
Building a Story Brand, Donald Miller
The Dan Sullivan Question, Dan Sullivan
