New World Ronin is the book that finally made me buy a Kindle reader. As much of Victor Pride's writing has done before, this book absolutely breathed new life into me. Since reading, my productivity has skyrocketed, and I attribute that to the emphasis he puts on momentum in this book.
Simply put, the only way is the way forward. If you're not moving forward, you've either stagnated or are in a decline. NWR furiously disposes the idea of reflection (something as an introvert, I can spend less time doing) and anything else that impedes forward movement in your life.
NWR calls for you to kill the old self that holds you back and accept the new character of a Ronin. To get the most out of this book, read with fierce focus and keep the vision for your life with you as each page speaks to you both.

Steve Jobs is my role model. He’s the person who has inspired me more than anyone else on this planet, yet I never met him or got the opportunity to shake his hand.
This book will give you the best insight into the life Jobs lead at Apple, into his personal life and struggles with cancer.
This biography shows you the real Steve Jobs in ways some people would never have thought of, and I think really shows the genius that he really was. No matter how unconventional it was.

The Green Mile is a recollection of fictional character, Paul Edgecombe’s, prison guard experience at Cold Mountain Penitentiary death row. There was no year like 1932, where a bizarre string of events occurred at the prison.
The year John Coffey came to walk the mile. The year Percy Wetmore went crazy. You may have seen the movie, but I’m going to be one of those people to tell you the book is 100 times better.

Tweak is one of the only books I have ever read that actually made my skin crawl each time I picked it up.
It is a memoir of recovered drug addict, Nic Sheff, who wrote about the times he was addicted to drugs and how that addiction affected his life growing up.
It goes a little like this: He uses. He gets clean. He uses again. Gets clean again. Uses again…so on and so forth.
It’s a really eye-opening book, and the perfect way to really understand the power of addiction and why people really turn to drugs. Spoiler alert: it’s not because they like doing it.

Unfortunately for them, the true owners of the diamonds are not happy their fortune is in somebody else’s hands. Even worse, it’s the Russian mob, and they will do anything they can to get them back.
The only way out of this is for Matthew to reveal his dark secret that may tear him and Katherine apart, but may also be the key to their survival and dreams of wealth.
