Good first Monday of 2023!
As a way to close the Reading Notes of 2022, I changed a little today's post by sharing the books I read during the year. I didn't include the novel and thriller as I'm not sure they would be relevant in this kind of post. However, if you are interested, find me at goodreads.com/fboucheros.
Let's make this new year a better one, and as usual, I'm always happy to receive your blog post and recommendations.
Listen Like You Mean It: Reclaiming the Lost Art of True Connection
Author: Ximena Vengoechea
I really enjoyed reading this book. Data is in the middle of everything, and when communicating that information it's often translated into numbers. To have an impact, the way we communicate those number is crucial. A book to read and probably read again after a while to refresh our memory.
Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard
Authors: Chip Heath, Dan Heath
This book oversimplifies a really complex topic, but I believe it was important to make each point clear. Nice read, it will help to be less afraid of making changes.

Big fan of D&D and this book is a great read. It is a history of the game and the people behind it. It is an excellent read for anyone who is interested in the game or its history of it. I had no idea of all the "drama", and honestly even I didn't know either what it takes to create those books/games.
It Doesn't Have to Be Crazy at Work
Authors: Jason Fried, David Heinemeier Hansson
The important message here where we can achieve a lot more with less. The book shares many examples and breaks them down into simple principles. I recommend it to anyone who is looking to improve their work-life balance.Can't Hurt Me: Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds
Author: David Goggins
Author: Richie Norton
The first time I heard of that book it was in a podcast and it seems very promising. Even though I didn`t fall in love with that book the ideas are interesting and definitely worth the time to learn them.
