I talk with Dr. Eric Greitens, New York Times bestselling author about his new book, Resilience, which is an excellent study into how to battle depression, improve your mental health, and deal with life's big challenges. It's super straightforward and filled with quite a mix of references.

John Warrillow has a new book, The Automatic Customer. Rohit Bhargava has a new book, Non Obvious, and Scott Sigler has a MOUNTAIN of books. I talk to all three authors about their books and to Scott about the book business overall. This episode is FULL of ideas. Sit somewhere with a pen.

Had a great sit down talk with Steve Garfield about his recent investment in Mercedes Benz of Burlington (Yeah, a car dealership!), and his other investments, and about what he does as a business man. Whenever you meet Steve out and about, he's just a happy go lucky guy, so little did you know, he's out there doing all kinds of interesting stuff. 

Hi to Patrick, both Nicks, and Pamela (who read the show notes!)

 

Do YOU? Drop me a line: chris@owner.media

I sit down with Chief Trend Hunter Jeremy Gutsche about his new book, Better and Faster, and about trends in general. And I get to chat with Chris Greenwood aka Manafest, about music and writing and what it means to be the kind of artist he is, and more. 

Hi Patrick! Didn't want to leave you out. And evidently TWO Nicks read the show notes. Holy cats! I'm just going to stuff the show notes with YOUR names, right?

Nicole Lapin 's new book is Rich Bitch, and it's about how to do better with your money. While it's technically aimed at girls, it's like Cosmo. You'll get a lot out of it if you're a dude, too! :) She's a smart egg and anyone who can talk about finance and make you dig it is good to know. Hi Nick!

Jon Loomer is much smarter than me about Facebook. I wanted you to hear more about that so I forced him to talk with me. Hi Nick, seeing as YOU read the show notes. No one else does. Just Nick. Sheesh. I will just write this for you then, Nick.

Dr. Terry Simpson is a surgeon and culinary medicine expert. Sol Orwell runs the supplement and health sciences site Examine.com . Both are experts in their field and have lots to help YOU learn. The link I mention at the end is http://cbrogan.me/examine . Are you actually reading the show notes?

James Altucher has written the Choose Yourself Guide to Wealth, and Claudia Altucher has written Become an Idea Machine. They've been writing a bunch of books in a kind of "series" after James's release of Choose Yourself. I paired these two interviews together for that reason, but they're both very different books and very much both worth picking up. 

Because you're a podcast listener, I got you a very special deal to get Claudia's book free by going to http://chrisbrogan.com/ideamachine . No such luck with James, but you're going to WANT to pay for what he's offering. It's far more value delivered than cost. 

Great books and wonderful conversations had by all.
