❼ Best Books to Read of 2012 – Kawasaki Inspired

Guy Kawasaki says that he reads 40 books a year. While I have no desire to consume that much information within 12 months, I do love books. My heart even beats a little faster anytime I drive to Barnes & Noble (I wish I were kidding).

Today, you get a book review unlike any other book review you’ve ever seen. It was a ton of fun to film. Hope you enjoy! xo PS: Shout out to @DariusGant on Twitter!

You know those long boring book reviews that never seem to end? Yeah this is not one of those. In the video, I “scientifically” rate each book on a scale of 0 to 10.

0 = why on earth did I even bother?
10 = Read this book before you die

I’d love to hear from you if you’ve read, plan to read, or want to ask questions about why I rated something a certain way. Just tweet at me here (I respond). Remember, 10 is good. 0 is bad. Enjoy!
