I started listening to audiobooks in 2014 or 2015. It was a huge productivity unlock but always ran into the monthly limit on Audible. I’d never set a reminder for when my new credit was available and would end up accidentally dropping the ball for months.

In 2017 I decided that anything spent on Audiobooks was worth it and started buying a book whenever I finished one.

(I also switched to app instead of Audible but that’s another story. TLDR: Dive in with, not Audible.)

Now I get through 3-4 books per month and people frequently ask which books I recommend.

The following is a relatively comprehensive list of books I’ve listened to and enjoy – both in terms of content and performance.

I’m always looking for recommendations so if you’ve found something you like please let me know.


A Short History of Nearly Everything – Bill Bryson (18h, 20m)
Lying – Sam Harris (1h 15m)
Sex At Dawn – Christopher Ryan & Cacilda Jetha (10h 57m)
The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down – Anne Fadiman (13h 37m)
