Book Of The Day Club
Let's say you want to be rich, famous, healthy, and happy. What would be the fastest way to get there?  Well if for the last 10 years you had been reading 1 book a week what would be different in your life right now?  4 books a month, 50 books a year, 500 books in a decade.  Imagine the knowledge of those 500 books embedded deep within your brain. You would be a genius. You could not even help but become rich, famous, healthy, and happy.

There is something wrong with the world today. This simple solution isn't the mainstream mentality. I always tell my coaching students, "All the knowledge in the world at our fingertips and we know less than my grandpa did."
 
We have Google, ebooks, Facebook, audio books, Kindles and Nooks but it seems like no one is really getting smarter. 
 
But even with all this technology I still prefer good old fashioned books.  
 
Here is why books work. It goes beyond just the simple knowledge they impart.
 
Books operate with a deeper, more powerful 'mechanism'. Think of it this way. If I said to you, "Hey would you like to spend 1 hour a day for the next year being mentored by the worlds' top billionaires, celebrities, authors, fitness trainers, professors, and world leaders?"
 
Your answer would be "of course". 
 
That's precisely what books do. They give you direct access to the mentors you would never be able to meet in real life. Because most of the people worth listening to are either busy or already dead.
 
Success comes through osmosis. It rubs off on you. Change who you spend time around and you will change your life. Books are the easiest way to spend time around high caliber mentors.
 
There is no faster way to transform your life than to simply read more. No one, no matter how high their IQ, knows it all. The body of knowledge in the world is simply to vast to learn alone. Learning through trial and error is a fools game.
 
As Warren Buffet says, "It's good to learn from your mistakes. It's better to learn from other people's mistakes."  
 
That is what books do for you. They cut the learning curve by years, even decades.
 
Reading is the habit of billionaires. Never forget that.
 
I have done a survey of most of the famous billionaires in the world and the only thing I found that they all had in common, from Steve Jobs to Larry Ellison to Sam Walton, was they all read a ton of books.
 
If you travel on Warren Buffett's private jet guess what he does the whole time? He will shake your hand, make some small talk, and then pull out a stack of reading material and spend the rest of the flight catching up on his reading. In fact, he spends almost 8 hours a day reading.
 
Charlie Munger another famous billionaire says:
 
"In my whole life, I have known no wise people who didn't read all the time - none, zero. You'd be amazed at how much Warren Buffett reads - at how much I read. My children laugh at me. They think I'm a book with a couple of legs sticking out." 
 
I remember an interview with Bill Gates and Warren Buffett in which they were asked what superpower they wished they had.
 
They both agreed that they would want to be the fastest readers in the world. They didn't wish for more power or money. Just the ability to read more books. Because they know that get the book thing right and the rest will naturally flow your way.
 
I'm sure you agree with what I'm saying. Most people do. 
 
So if I asked you what keeps you from reading a book a day, or a book a week, I would guess your answer would be, "Tai it takes me too long to read a book, I don't have the time."
 
If you feel you read too slow you aren't alone. In fact Warren Buffett once said “I've probably wasted ten years reading too slowly." And remember this is coming from Buffett who by the age of 12 had read every book in the Omaha public library system on investing. Even he felt it was hard to catch up.
 
Reading can be a pain. Somehow I was lucky enough to learn speed reading as a teenager and over years of practice I can finish a book pretty quickly. I devote a few hours daily to reading 1 book a day.
 
That is how I came up with this book club idea. It was almost on accident. A lot of my friends said they didn't have time to read and asked if I would just do the work for them and summarize what I read in an email everyday. 
 
This is what I have created here. A simple email newsletter you can join for free. Each day you will get a summary of the books that I think are most important for changing your life.
 
I read 4 different types of books on the subjects that I consider the foundation of living a good life.
 
Allan Nation, one of my mentors, taught me that it's vital be eclectic and read from a wide base of knowledge. The books vary from classics written centuries ago, all the way to cutting edge modern bestsellers.
 
The first subject I cover is physical health. If you are laying in bed sick you really don't care about anything else. So I consider educating yourself on health, nutrition, food, exercise, sleep, water, stretching, etc. to be the obvious first step.
 
You will be getting books like: 

The second subject is on wealth and business. If you calculate the percentage of your waking adult life that you will spend working it's literally OVER 50%! We spend more than half of our life making money and yet we devote so little time to learning about money and wealth creation. I consider this one of the travesties of modern times.
 
I don't care if you are broke or a multi-millionaire. Books hold the key to you unlocking massive wealth. And more importantly making money doing something you love.
 
Great books like: 

The third subject is on love. I was just hanging out with Dr. David Buss who in my opinion is the smartest man alive on the subject of love and human attraction. He is the author of some amazing books that you will receive in my newsletter like "The Evolution Of Desire". Nothing has the ability to make or break your happiness more than your love life. Humans are social creatures. Get the social 'game' wrong and your life goes straight downhill.
 
And of all the 4 subjects we will cover, without a doubt the most misinformation exists about love and romance. The good news is that there are a tremendous amount of amazing books out there that dispell the lies and bring clarity. I am going to send you book summaries that will revolutionize how you see love and romance. 
 
Fascinating books like: 

The fourth subject is on happiness. If you study Maslows hierarchy of needs the top of the pyramid is self-actualization. Life becomes somewhat pointless without some sort of purpose that is higher than yourself. Most people find this higher purpose through their children and grandchildren. Hopefully you will go even deeper than that in your own life.
 
The book of the day newsletters will cover books with massive insight on civilization changing issues: 
So if you are not already on my book of the day list simply sign up on the form on the top of this page. 
 
Remember that life is full of entropy. If you are not careful your life will slowly slip backwards. You have to inject new energy, new inspiration, deep into your mind to ensure that entropy does rob you of true happiness.
 
There is no cost to you and you will get all the benefits of reading a book a day without actually having to take the time to do the work yourself.
 
It works pretty simply. You sign up free and every day you get an email with a new book summary. It's similar to the Cliffnotes you might have used back in school. 

But I put a little spin on things with my own opinions mixed in. I will also give you my recommended book list so that you can you know what to buy next time you are on Amazon.
 
Remember a lot of books nowadays have a lot of fluff that you really don't need. So I help you skip all the unnecessary info and skip to the core concepts that you can implement immediately.
 
So take 2 minutes a day to read the summaries for the next month. 
 
Take my challenge. If at the end of the 30 days you think it wasn't worth your time send me an email. I have NEVER had one person write in. This ALWAYS improves lives.
 
Try this book of the day club for 30 days straight and watch the prosperity pour into your life.
 
Let's change the world together.
