Not sure if it's a cultural thing between the US and the UK or just society evolving now we have social media and stuff but I recently reread How to win friends and influence people and though it was massively overrated. Same goes for The 7 habbits of highly effective people.

Anyway, heres my list of books and why:-


Excellent book in my opinion. Based on variations of the 10,000-hour rule with plenty of examples. Also touches on how the unknown habits and circumstance of someone can lead to outstanding abilities.

Zero To One

The first book that I couldn't put down until I completed it. Picked a fair few things up from it as well as a bunch of things I hope to move forward within the future with startups.

The 33 Strategies of War

Not a business book but definitely my style if you take the examples and strategies and turn them into business. This is the second book I have not been able to put down once picking it up.

The E-Myth Revisited

Although I had a decent understanding of how to allocate duties to people depending on their job role this helped me better understand it as well as the importance of doing it.


Another book I loved, just introduced me to a bunch of new concepts with a fair few I hope to use in the future.

Black Box Thinking

Coming from and engineering background I was already used to being ok with my failures provided I was learning from them but this book is based around how different industries treat failure and how it is important to accept it and grow from it.

Millionaire Fastlane

I feel this is an excellent book for reality checks and getting people into a better mindset of what to expect and the amount of work required. It also explains a few common misconceptions of the get rich slow style methods where you may end up rich but you will be 60 years old or more.

I update this post with all of the books I have read with a rating but here are my top picks.

Jos kirjan haluaa lukea, niin Bounce: Mozart, Federer, Picasso, Beckham, and the Science of Success on ihan hyvä. Käsittelee aihetta nimenomaan urheilun näkökulmasta ja on helppolukuinen.

That's a very interesting insight, thank you for taking the time to write it out and share it.

You definitely make a good point about intelligence and capacity to learn. Probably the most important natural talent one could be lucky enough to possess, but I still assert quality and dedicated practice time is the most important factor in improving skill, and I would also assert that learning itself is a skill which can be improved, like any other.

I would really reccommend reading a book called 'Bounce' by an English Olympian called Matthew Syed. It's a great read into the topic and well written -

I disagree.

Read this book, then rethink whether you should quit or not.

u/WarezNotWars · 2 pointsr/amateur_boxing

I think that some people seem to have natural advantages because of prior experience in other sports where the biomechanics and movements translate easily to boxing.

I worked with a guy in a class at my gym who could punch very hard and (more or less) correctly his first day without having any boxing experience at all. He didn't really need to be shown how to shift his weight or use his hips and shoulders correctly and already knew how to sequence the movements correctly (i.e. hips, then torso, then shoulder/arm), and he could punch hard without 'pushing' like a noob.

It was really hard to believe that he had never thrown a punch before. I found out later that he trained fairly seriously as a hockey player and I imagine that there is a lot in common between mastering a slap shot and throwing a right cross to explain why this guy seemed like such a natural 'born puncher'.

P.S. I highly recommend that you check out this book which will blow your mind by completely demolishing the idea that some people have strong innate genetic advantages in sports (or anything else really)
