Read These Books in 2023

If you only read a few books in 2023, read these:

“Daily study,” Tolstoy wrote, is “necessary for all people.”

Tolstoy dreamed of creating a book with “a wise thought for every day of the year, from the greatest philosophers of all times and all people.”

This book is deeply moving and profound. It’s written in 1949 by the famous journalist John Gunther about the death of his genius son Johnny at 17 from a brain tumor.

This is a powerful, inspiring book about resilience and powering through. I found myself marking dozens of pages in this one and just continually smiling throughout.

Dr. Eger is a complete hero of mine. She's a 95-year-old Holocaust survivor who not only endured unimaginable suffering, but found meaning in it. Today, she’s a psychologist who helps patients overcome trauma.

There’s a reason this book has endured now for almost twenty centuries. If you haven’t read Marcus Aurelius or if you have…you should read this book and then read it again.

This year began with a booming economy, and is ending in recession. If you’re looking to navigate the unpredictable nature of the global economy as an individual who hopes to plan (and be secure) for the future, this book is great.
