Start An Audiobook Practice—5 Curated Titles

Some of the best choices for audiobooks are those that give you more insight each time that you listen to them. Leading American business thinker Seth Godin recently recommended several such audiobooks, including one of his own, that would be useful on both initial listening and re-listening.

Here they are along with a suggestion for when they might help you the most. I hope they engage you.


If you aspire to creating work that matters
Leap First by Seth Godin


If you are feeling stuck
The Art of Possibility by Rosamund Stone Zander and Benjamin Zander


If you need to break through creative barriers
The War of Art by Steve Pressfield


If you are stressed
The Recorded Works of Pema Chödrön by Pema Chödrön

She runs a Buddhist monastery in Nova Scotia

If you feel like crying a little
Just Kids by Patty Smith
A memoir about love and loss and art and confidence and, most of all, best friends

As always, let me know if we can help!
