I know that many people look forward to Aaron Rodgers book recommendations when he appears on the Pat McAfee show. I too love reading so I thought I would throw out some of the books I would recommend to the Complicated Fella.
Ego Is the Enemy by Ryan Holiday
I know the Daily Stoic by Ryan Holiday is on his list but perhaps he should thumb through this one as well. Maybe you’re not as great and smart as you think you are. Maybe your quest to be perceived as the best has impeded on you actually being the best. Maybe your personal accomplishments have prevented team accomplishments.
What Got You Here Won’t Get You There by Marshall Goldsmith
Similar to above, being impressed with your past success and thinking you know more than everyone else. You become resistant to change because you think you have the formula.
Extra Life by Steven Johnson
This one may be difficult to read for the Complicated Fella because it is pretty persuasive that medical breakthroughs are actually a good thing and have helped us live longer. Crazy concept I know. It even goes as far as to praise vaccines. There aren’t many conspiracies in here but I am sure he can think of some after reading the book.
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
It is a story about a boy who comes into money and strives to prove himself to the higher social class. It is a story about ambition, loyalty, and humility. Plus we have had great expectations for years with little to show so it’s kind of a funny play on words.
The 17 Essential Qualities of a Team Player by John C Maxwell
Here are the four four qualities. See how many you think are a strength for the fella:
Escaping the Rabbit Hole by Mick West
This book talks about some of Aaron Rodgers favorite things: 9/11 conspiracies, chemtrails, Sandy Hook, and more. Since we know he is a deep thinker, I know he will enjoy seeing the other point of views on these topics.
The Dip by Seth Godin
It’s just a hell of a book
