A bit stodgy and sometimes the war stories are somewhat repetitive but there's a goldmine of life guiding principles inside.

Where else can you get access to the fundamental life principles developed by a billionaire and have them read to you by the billionaire himself? Lots off food for thought inside this one!

Bernard Hinault is "Le Blaireau", the Badger. Tough as old boots, he is the old warrior of the French peloton, as revered as he is feared for his ferocious attacks. He has won five Tours de France, marking his name into the history books as a member of cycling's most exclusive club. Yet as the 1986 Tour de France ascends into the mountains, a boyish and friendly young American named Greg LeMond threatens the Badger - and France's entire cycling heritage.

An entertaining yarn if you are a fan of cycling and its history. Otherwise, you probably won't make it past the first chapter.

  • The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

Semi-entertaining and somewhat predictable but tolerable if you have some time to spare. This book will not change your life but it might underline some areas that need attention. #audible1
