Great reads part 1

Summer is coming up and you need something to read at the pool. Look no further, the Famous Brother delivers again. 😀

As anyone who’s been to our place can attest – I like books.


Here’s a quick list of five of my favorite books:

  1. Purposeful Primitive by Marty Gallagher. Incredible book with great stories about great lifters as well as an endless amount of sound training advice from a lifetime under the bar. Gallagher is real.
  2. Zen in the art of writing by Ray Bradbury. Though it’s (duh) a book about writing, there’s alot to be learned for anyone in a creative (or any) line of work.
  3. The Art of Manliness by Brett and Kate McKay. An easy to read guide to being a man. Includes tips on how to start a fire and what kind of hat to wear.
  4. Without Conscience by Dr Robert D. Hare. A great look into the minds of psychopaths. It’s educational, frightening and catching.
  5. The Dice Man by Luke Rhinehart. This is a crazy book. As the title suggests, it tells the story of a man, who makes life decisions by casting a dice. Wildly entertaining and thought provoking.

If you have any recommendations, post them to comments.

  1. Dan Johns “Never let go” er bestemt også en anbefaling værd. En fin samling af mange af hans artikler, fra bl.a. t-nation.

    Dan John rocker..

    Formand for “Dan John Appreciation Society”.

  2. Er helt med på Dan John, som Mic skriver. Hans og Pavels Tsatsoulines bog Easy Strength er også meget interessant, og når nu vi snakker Pavel, så er PTP (duh) og Relax Into Stretch især fede.

    På et mere livsfilosofisk plan vil jeg til hver en tid anbefale “The Tao of Pooh” (“Peter Plys og hans Tao”) af Benjamin Hoff. Letforståelig og humoristisk præsentation af kinesisk visdom, der er relevant idag mere end nogensinde.
