In no particular order the books listed below have had a substantial impact on my life.
From transforming my physique from a mere 135lbs to 200lbs to eradicating negative self-talk and building iron willpower and discipline to wake up early every damn day and build multiple profitable online businesses the below books allowed me to do so…
Victor Pride’s 30 day course to becoming the ultimate version of yourself. If you want to become productive, confident and fit this is the course for you. I can tell you it won’t be easy, but it’ll be worth it.
This was one of the first self improvements I followed almost a decade ago now and to this day it is undoubtly one of the most important books/programs I’ve been through. Without this guide I would not have achieved all that I have today, no joke.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s biography. This is without a doubt one of the most motivational books ever written. Follow Arnold’s journey and mindset as he overcomes adversity, makes millions, becomes a professional bodybuilder, actor and politician.

Mike Tyson’s biography. You don’t have to be a fan of boxing or Mike himself to find value in this book. Undisputed Truth follows the journey of a fat kid that grew up in the ghetto all the way to becoming the intimidating, fearsome boxer to walk this earth. Mike’s obsession to be the best and sickening work ethic is extremely motivational.

The #1 self development book. This book should be required reading for everyone, everywhere. Napoleon Hill will teach you how to get what you want out of life. Many books have tried to replicate and copy the message from Think & Grow Rich and have failed in the process. Get the original, it’ll change your life.
You can check out Think & Grow Rich here.
I have read close to a hundred books on wealth creation, getting rich and the like – the vast majority of them contain dull, recycled content that any dummy could think up. This book is the needle in the proverbial haystack. M J De Marco is the real deal and I 100% recommend this book to anyone and everyone that wants to live a life of choice (aka. become financially free and not have to worry about the price of anything you want to buy or do). Suitable for anyone from the complete novice to those already running a successful business.

This is the easiest to read and most important text on stoicism out there. I own three copies of this book as I’ve taken so many notes and highlighted so many important quotes that I remind myself of daily.
This book will deliver a number of hard truths and light a fire under you to get things done while reminding you what is important in your life.
Check out Seneca’s On The Shortness of Life here.
Keep this next to your bed and begin each day by reading the page that corresponds with the date.
You’ll find a powerful stoic lesson/quote and Ryan Holiday’s take on how we can apply it to our life.
From discipline to acceptance of other people there are 366 powerful lessons within these pages, it’ll only take you a minute or two to read and ponder each morning.
Check out The Daily Stoic here.
You’ll rarely hear me recommending or discussing any influencers in the fitness industry because the majority are just salesmen, trying to sell their generic program or re-labelled supplement.
Mike Matthews work is a godsend, and the Shredded Chef is quite possibly the finest piece of his work.
The Shredded Chef is loaded with 125 recipes so you’ll eliminate the guesswork out of your meals while bulking and cutting.

I recently purchased Charlie Munger’s flagship book, Poor Charlie’s Almanack – a book filled with hundreds of pages of wisdom from a billionaire and master of mindset and mental frameworks to improve your life..
This book cost me $65 USD. To most this will seem absurd…
“$65 for a book?! What a waste of money”
…these are the same people that spend hundreds of dollars on junk food and alcoholic beverages on Friday and Saturday night.
Delay The Instant Gratification
Don’t adopt the epicurean mentality of “eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we die.”
You must think long term, you must delay the instant gratification we’re so used to experiencing in this life and invest for tomorrow (stoicism).
“Don’t invest in things that’ll rust, rot or depreciate, invest in things that’ll be worth more later or make you be worth more later”.
The information in this book is worth well over $65 if read and implemented, the information on investing and cognitive biases is worth its weight in gold.
But remember, It’s the application of knowledge that counts, not just the acquisition (read it and take action!)
