From the Web

Zen Habits Handbook for Life – Leo just released an e-book compiling the best posts from his archive. When you get an archive as large as Leo’s, it can be hard to find the best. With an archive of over 400 posts here and around 100 off this website, I’ve been considering a similar option to showcase more of my own content. At under 7$, the price is worth the convenience.

Fixed-Schedule Productivity – Another great entry from Cal Newport of StudyHacks. By making your work time more scarce, you will use it more efficiently. With my new book coming out, my daily schedule has been creeping into my evenings more than I’d like. I might need to implement Cal’s advice in a 30-Day Trial.

My next book, Learn More, Study Less, is scheduled for release sometime next week. For those of you who haven’t heard of my holistic learning concepts, here’s a few introductory sources while you wait for the launch:

From the Shelf

How to Win Friends and Influence People – The classic from Dale Carnegie on relationships and human nature. The book certainly isn’t new, but the advice is timeless. I read the book a few years ago and I might re-read it again soon.

I’m still working through The Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith at the moment, (I’m on the 2nd book out of 4), so I probably won’t be able to add any new items here for a week or two.

    Looking forward to your book Scott. I love your “learn more with less” themed posts. Good stuff.


  • Cal

    That would be a 30-day trial I’d love to read about!

  • Kabir

    Hey is it an e-book again?

  • John Cougar Goat Smuggla

    These books you read yearly, do you buy them or get them from the library?

  • Scott Young


    Yes. It will be an e-book plus bonus printout documents. I really liked the way the last e-book turned out, so I decided to go with the digital, as opposed to self-publishing route.


    There aren’t any books I read “yearly”. But, yes, I do own How to Win Friends.
