Smart Reading by Tai Lopez

I am really into knowing more about this guy recently, but here is a video that I stumbled by on YouTube.

In here he is taking about smart, rather than speed reading. He proposed the following:

  • Reading 150 books a year, divided into the following :

1. health: known about yourself and your body.

2. Wealth: money and finance.

3. Relationships: love and other social stuff.

4. Happiness: as well as other charterer traits


  • Repetition rather than volume ( read and re-read)

– also value over volume. He said that you can read fiction if you want but don’t count this as reading ( ouch!)

  • All great leaders are readers. A good example is Bill Gates own page is more or less a blog with his favorite readings ( also known I am thinking of the brilliant Oprah as another good example). Gotta check more great leaders recommendations


Ok, so here is what I am reading in 2018 and I will try to put it in the categories that he suggested.

Current status 2/150 ( counting only the non-fiction or what he called a meaningful fiction books)

* Grey indicates books to-be-read

  2. wheat belly ( This is from Tai’s list)
  3.  10 reasons you feel old and fat ( also from Tai’s list)

2. The total money makeover 

3. Unshakable

  2. How to win friends and influence people

4. Awaken the giant within 


Wow, when truth is evident! It’s shocking !

Interesting how most books are in the ” Happiness ” category followed by Finance .. Need to step up the game guys .. need to step up the game!

I will have to add at least one book in health and one book in the relationship category.

Good that the year is at it’s start .. I will have lots of work to do.. let me know if you would like to join me in this challenge
