Best Candidates For AudioBook Consumption

I mostly listen to nonfiction, so there are many history and self-help books.

    1. "What Does This Button Do?: An Autobiography" by Bruce Dickinson

    Any fan of Iron Maiden or interesting people will like this book. Bruce reads the audiobook himself and he is very funny.

    2. Be Useful: Seven Tools for Life by Arnold Schwarzenegger

    Also, read by the author. He is very no-nonsense, and very funny!

    3. Cobalt Red: How the Blood of the Congo Powers Our Lives by Siddharth Kara

    This book opened my mind to what is going on, and how tragically some people live in Africa.

    4. Finding meaning in the second half of life James Hollis

    For those of us who are entering this phase, in this phase, or plan to reach this phase of life it is a good thing to think about:

    7. “The Future Is Faster Than You Think: How Converging Technologies Are Transforming Business, Industries, and Our Lives (Exponential Technology Series)” Peter H. Diamandis (Author), Steven Kotler (Author)

    This is an important book that explains how multiple convergent technologies are causing things like artificial intelligence to scale so fast, and gives you an idea of what is going to happen in the next 5 to 10 years.

    9. Pacific by Simon Winchester

    This is an interesting history of the Pacific Ocean in modern times and how it is used and abused. It is a far-reaching book that covers a lot of ground. It is a great audiobook.

    10. The Algebra of wealth: Scott Galloway
