I’ve read a bit over 1,200 books in my life and although that’s nowhere near the 30,000 some other guy read, I have reduced my reading list to 30 favorites I believe may be helpful to the Right Revival. In my live stream episode, I discussed a summary of these books and what I find useful about them. These books have certainly influenced my thinking. Find the original TikTok video here.
