#b90x - DAY 8 - What are you Consuming?



The Well Life, How to Use Structure, Sweetness, and Space to Create Balance, Happiness, and Peace by Briana and Dr. Peter Borten.

Also, I’m reading Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.


Wow. The motorcycle book is fantastic!


I read a trilogy a few years back & flew to meet the scientist behind the book; My Big Toe
It explains quantum physics extremely well. :slight_smile:


He also has YouTube videos. The conference video in Toronto is the one I attended. Flew across the country just to see him. You’ll see the back of my head :joy: in the vids.
I’m not a scientist & I got a lot out of the book so there is no doubt you’ll grasp it as well.


Hitchhikers Guide to the Universe & Galaxy books for those closet physics geeks out there :slight_smile:


Thank you @Angela for introducing me to MBT. I now have a lot of content to get through and to ponder. I love life’s little miracles and the things that make you get to use your brain in new and different ways! Thank you!


Oh you are so very welcome. I’m going to buy the book that you suggested. It’s great meeting people with the same interests.
So glad to have met you!


I’m currently reading a book called Discipline and Punish: The Birth of the Prison, by Michel Foucault.

It was given to me by a friend who is doing his Phd in Affect Theory. He’s aware of my keen interest in how our governments, media and banks are manipulating us. He suggested this book as an eye-opener as to how our systems of punishment and discipline have shaped societies and allowed those in power to exercise it against us in myriad ways, from punishing crime to controlling space.

From the blurb, “Michel Foucault argues that the development of the western system of prisons, police and legal hierarchies have merely shifted the focus of social control from our bodies to our souls.”

Heavy stuff.


Never really been into reading books but have recently been consuming & enjoying Elon Musk.
After i finish i will look through this thread to pick another to consume.


Currently reading Mastering Bitcoin: Programming the Open Blockchain by Andreas M. Antonopoulos


I’m am taking this Bitcoin Crypto-life seriously. I’ve been following Bix Weir, Leon Fu & Tai Zen, Clif High, etc for years. B90X is a real focuser. Love it!

I found Douglas Lampi and started reading his book Cryptocurrency: Rags to Riches. He also recommends a short Kindle read Make Money Cryptocurrency Trading by John Duncan.

In terms of personal growth, I’m starting to read High Performance Habits by Brendon Bruchard. Personally, I also find Nassim Taleb’s work thought provoking.

I recently finished these on Audible.
The Jesus Prayer by Frederica Matthewes-Green.
The Power of Moments - Chip & Dan Heath
Love Yourself Like Your Life Depended upon it - Kamal Ravikant
Braving The Wilderness - Brene Brown
The War of Art: Winning the Inner Game - Steven Pressfield
RARE Leadership: 4 Uncommon Habits for Increasing Trust, Joy, & Engagement in the People you Lead - Dr. Marcus Warner & Dr. Jim Wilder

I love reading. My wife and I do a lot of learning via audio, youtube, online seminars, etc. Thank you Peter.

What got you into this cyrpto life?


A coworker had a little BTC and at a staff meeting, I asked him to explain Bitcoin to everyone. That was in March of this year. It took me until May to get in myself because I was doing a bunch of research. Over this past summer, I experienced the pain of growth of BTC power as opposed to alt coin growth and lost about 40% of my BTC value even though dollar-wise I am up a little. I learned that lesson. Don’t be overleveraged out of BTC. I belong to the CryptoGrinders telegram group and watch his (Ryan Lye) video’s and he had Peter on the show and I saw this community. I agree with you. I love this community! I then learned here to dollar cost avg in and HODL for dear life. Since doing more of that my gains have been much better than chasing new coins every few minutes :slight_smile:

My job now is to educate everyone I know to get in…even if just a little. People loved that our Thanksgiving dinner was about Bitcoin…lol. 2 new people joined the Cryptoverse after that discussion. Mission accomplished!

To Da Moon :rocket::rocket:


I’m reading “Principles” by Ray Dalio and “The Inevitable: 12 Technological Forces That Will Shape Our Future” by Kevin Kelly


Which one would you recommend a person read first?


Since June I’ve been on a path to improve my physical fitness. “The Four Hour Body” by Tim Ferriss is the last book I read and I continue to refer to it frequently like an encyclopedia for diet, exercise, health and more.

I’m looking forward to reading Tribe of Mentors next and joining in the book club discussion here.

I’ve been reading a lot of white papers, listening to podcasts and reading posts about cryptocurrency but I’m thinking I should take the next step and read “The Internet of Money” by Andreas M. Antonopoulos

I’m also have “Cryptoassets” by Chris Burniske and Jack Tatar on my list to read.


Recently reviewed an old Digital Day Trading book. Currently making Tools of Titans by Tim Ferris a daily staple of the mental diet. For the physical diet, I have recently added Huel to assure good nutrition.


The last books that I read were “Life and how to survive it” - written by John Cleese and his psychologist Dr Robin Skynner. Highly recommend it. I like light reading at night and fantasy so I read the Wheel of Time - excellent books too but very long (14 books in total).
I’ve also been reading Nick Szabo’s blog, unenumerated just casually when I have time.

I have a few on the reading list that I’ve been recommended, just need to go out and buy them;
4 hour work week - Tim Ferriss
The internet of money - Andreas Antonopolous
Rational optimist - Matt Ridly
Technopoly - Neil Postman
The Selfish Gene - Richard Dawkins
Thinking fast and slow (I actually own this one just haven’t started it).
The uttermost part of the world.

If there was one book you guys would recommend as an all over Brain changer what would it be also if there is a book that you all recommend i will go out and purchase the book with proof of purchase and start reading

Thanks guys this group is amazing!
