I have a love-hate relationship with audiobooks. I love that I can consume books while walking, cooking or doing something else, but I hate that I can't take notes easily. That's why I'm lately reading mostly novels when on the go.

That said, these are some great listens that have stood out over the years.

Have one of your own? Recommend it to me here. Prefer to read the old fashioned way? My recommendations are here.

  • The Art of Asking by Amanda Palmer
    • Read by the author, who is great at adding a layer of sentimentality to the book, which is already about surrendering to other people and trusting humanity.
  • This is Going to Hurt by Adam Kay
    • Read by the author, this book had me cackling all the way through. Amazing insights into the life of a doctor; the good, the bad, and the gory.
  • Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir
    • From the same author as "The Martian", this is a fascinating story. Great for audio because you can hear the alien! This book explores its nature and how to trigger it. Whenever I feel stuck, I seek flow states to help me escape the stuckness (currently: kitesurfing)
