Atomic Habits is the book that's influenced my life the most since I read it in August 2021. I've since re-read it several times and subscribe to James Clear's weekly newsletter. If I could only recommend one book, this would be it.
I first read The Last Lecture back in high school, but I revisited it recently and listened to it in one sitting. There are a lot of great life lessons in this book, it's quick, and it's well-written.
This was the first Malcolm Gladwell book I read, and I remember liking it so much that I promptly went and read all of his other books (all of which are fantastic).
I strongly recommend this book to anyone who aspires to do more.
