In keeping with my resolutions for this year, I thought I would post book reviews. This way I can be kept accountable for the books I read. In case you didn’t read the post before this my resolution for reading this year is to read at least one book a month. I decided this for a number of reasons mainly because I’ve found that I’m a book store junkie that loves to buy books and often lets them pile up on my nightstand without actually reading them. I also find that at the end of everyday I often keep myself plugged into the technology realm. If I take a moment to read a book then I’ll spend less time plugged in and give my mind a little break to wander.
The book for this month was Apolo Anton Ohno’s book Zero Regrets: Be Greater than Yesterday. This book was a pretty fast read if you have time. He mostly talks about his career in detail from the beginning to the present day. Apolo also delves a little into his relationship with his dad that has been a huge part of his career. This book could be classified under several categories but I’ll classify it under self help because by Apolo telling us his journey he is in some sense challenging the reader to live a life of no regrets. He tells readers all the things that have happened through his career and some the crazy experiences he has had along the way such as Dancing with the Stars and not getting on the Olympic team on his first try.
I would definitely recommend this book to people even if you are not completely sold on the idea of Apolo Ohno and short track speed skating. It’s a good book to read and very well written. Ladies, there are also some amazing pictures 😉 He’s got a better situation going on than The Situation.
