9 Life-Changing Books (Ep. 96)

College Info Geek PodcastThis week, my friend Martin and I are discussing the books that did the most to change our lives.

Each of us tried to pick four books (though Martin ended up with five, which is fair because I’ve read the last one). Some were influential in many ways; other might have had just one simple idea that made a huge change.

You’ll find all the books listed below, along with other things we mentioned during the episode.
