Welcome to the Books of Titans Podcast where I (Erik Rostad) seek truth in the world’s best books. My goal is to read 52 books per year and share what I’m learning. I’ll talk a bit about each book, tie ideas together from a variety of genres, and share the one thing I always hope to remember from each book.

Gave it a second listen
At first I did not like this podcast but came back and listened to more recent episodes including the most recent about Trumps book end enjoyed these episodes much more. If you don’t enjoy the early episodes skip ahead and give it another try. Looking forward to the Biden episode and whatever follows.
I was hoping for less fluff about the host and more substance about the book itself. The ramble about the host is repetitive when hearing the same context over just a few episodes.
Love and Thanks
I found your show today, I love it and listen to you for about 2 hours.
