ABOUT BILLIONAIRE BOOK CLUB
Thanks for visiting. Here’s information about Billionaire Book Club.
One day my finance professor took me aside and told me: “The education you’re receiving here at the school is great, but it is lacking one thing. If you want to be successful with entrepreneurship or investing, I have a recommendation for you.” I was curious! “The school’s primary purpose is to make you a great employee, not an entrepreneur or business owner” He said.
“In addition to the things you learn here, go and read books! Read books by people who accomplished great things. Read books by people who did what you want to do.”
I started to read books and I started to get picky with my book choices. I wanted to learn from the best. This blog consists of notes and lessons. Billionaire Book Club is notes for long term learning.
- The book “The User Illusion” by Tor Nørretrenders outline the science proving that we humans are basically clueless. We know next to nothing about what’s going on. Studies by Benjamin Libet proves that we fool ourselves into believing decisions originate from our conscious will, when in fact there’s a half second delay in our consciousness. The decision is made before we become aware of it. The book also discuss how we are only aware of about 15 bits of information out of millions in our subconscious every second. The purpose of this science is to prove that we are mostly clueless.
- This is probably why 99% of books out there are filled with bullshit. People don’t know that they don’t know what they’re talking about.
- Nassim N. Taleb covers this topic well. He talks about the immense amount of noise we face out there and that we must focus on signal. The amount of irrelevant information we learners face when choosing sources is huge.
- A solution to this problem, is to focus on time tested quality information, ideas and books. Instead of reading the most hyped new book, read the Nikola Tesla’s autobiography. Read time tested books. Read books recommended by people with real and justified authority.
