Since many of us don’t read for pleasure only we should be careful not to discard a book because it’s not a thrilling rollercoasters ride. Some books I struggled with—that bored me or overwhelmed me— also gave me valuable insights and context for understanding the world and human nature.
Consult your ‘Why’ before you discard a book. What was your intention when you first started reading it and does it still apply?
Here are some books I’m happy I didn’t give up on (SWIPE for covers):
📖 Titan – The Life of J. D Rockefeller
📖 The New Tsar – The Rise and Reign of Vladimir Putin
📖 Mao – The Unknown Story
📖 The Origin of Political Order – Francis Fukuyama
(Hey, I see a common theme here 😉)

What book are you glad you finished even though you struggled? 🤔
